Harris reviews Millwall's draw with Coventry

10 September 2016

Mixed emotions for the manager...

Neil Harris felt Millwall were "below par" during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Coventry City at The Den but praised his side for their second-half fightback.

Marvin Sordell gave The Sky Blues a first-half lead with a powerful strike from outside the box but Harris' men earned a point when Steve Morison's cross was turned home by Aiden O'Brien.

The Lions kept up pressure on Coventry's goal in the closing stages but Tony Mowbray's side held on for the draw.

"It was a little bit below par," Harris said.

"I'll have to look at the week's training to see if it was right and if I prepared us in the right manner. We'll have to see.

"I thought we were excellent in the first 15 minutes to be honest but then we got into sloppy habits, which was very unlike us, and then Coventry built some momentum. We were one-nil down at half-time from their only real shot on goal.

"I said to the guys that we had to be improve and be more aggressive with the ball, which was a similar message to last week against Bradford. My concern is that's a few games now where we've been behind, but saying that I was delighted with the reaction in the second-half.

"We weren't flowing but we created chances and I lost count of how many free headers we had at their goal in the first and the second-half."
