Millwall boss declares himself satisfied with awayday victory

Neil Harris is confident that Millwall can kick on from Saturday's 3-1 victory at Northampton - and is already looking forward to the visit of Bolton Wanderers to The Den this coming Tuesday (7.45pm).

Goals from Lee Gregory and Calum Butcher put Millwall firmly in the driving seat against a Town side reduced to 10 men on 54 minutes with the dismissal of Jak McCourt.

Although Marc Richards reduced the arrears 10 minutes from time, Lions striker Steve Morison made sure of all three points with a third goal on 88 minutes.

"I was pleased with my players today," Chopper told

"They have worked so hard over the last 12 - 14 days on the back of the Walsall game. They have really stuck at it and this is a good start to the week.

"I am disappointed with the goal, but I'm not going to let that take anything away from the performance.

"I think we were a better team today, this was a professional team performance. We have been letting goals in and not winning games, I hear the defence needs changing, this needs changing or that needs changing, but we do it as a team.

"When we say about doing it as a team, its not an old cliche, we do it from the front and by taking care of the ball up front. It means us getting the ball in the right areas going forward, and us building attacks and allowing our defenders to settle.

"The physical test we had in the second-half will certainly come in useful for Tuesday against Bolton , they are a big team at this level. a really good team and have some of our old foes. It will be nice to see them.

"I'm delighted to be back at The Den. We lost in the 96th minute against Rochdale, but we have been outstanding at home. On the back of today, we will be looking to take this momentum into the next two games."
