Millwall boss Harris previews 'huge' Gillingham game

Manager Neil looking to end regular campaign on a high

Neil Harris says his Millwall side go into Sunday's 'huge' League One clash against Gillingham with "real purpose to win the game".

The Lions have already secured their Play-Off spot going into the final match of the regular League calendar but won't be taking things easy against a Gillingham side who need all three points if they are to stand a chance of finishing in the top six.

Millwall's final League position will impact who they meet in the Play-Offs and indeed where they play first, but Harris insists his main focus is on getting a result at Priestfield.

"We're not thinking too much about where we are finishing in the table, whether we play at home or away first. I'm quite relaxed about that," he said.

"Our home form has been outstanding since Christmas and our away form has been top drawer all season.

"What I am focused on is beating Gillingham this Sunday. It's a huge game for us and one that I am desperate to win.

"We were disappointed with the first 15 minutes of the game when we played them back in December when we were behind and had a red card too. It made it very difficult to get back into the match, but even so our 10 men showed real spirit and determination.

"This is a big one for us and our fans. We will go there with real purpose to win the game."

Harris admits that a few players received knocks against Oldham but has insists that he will field the "strongest possible side" on Sunday.

"We had a few niggles from the game the other day," the boss added.

"There are some players who have played a lot of minutes this year so we will have to assess how they are.

"But it will be the strongest possible team based on what is available to me.

"We are going to win the game and the focus of the players is purely on Sunday, not the Play-Offs."
