Millwall "not good enough" says Harris

27 September 2016

The boss reviews his side's third successive loss

Neil Harris admitted Millwall are "not good enough" at the moment after watching his side slip to a 3-1 defeat against Port Vale on Tuesday night.

The Lions enjoyed plenty of good moments in possession at Vale Park but were again undone by defending which left them with too much to do at the other end.

A clearly frustrated Harris said afterwards: "The manner in which we conceded the goals was really poor.

"With the first goal we've missed tackles, clearances and then we were not tight enough in the box. The second and third goals are just basic set-pieces.

"I've prided my team over the last 18 months on being good in both boxes and good at set-plays but at the moment we're short and that's really disappointing.

"We don't want to be seen to be a soft touch but when the ball goes into our box at the moment it's going in our net.

"With the ball we created chances, lots of them, and missed some absolute sitters at one, two and three-nil down.

"This becomes about pride, professionalism and discipline. Concentration is huge also. Sometimes there are moments in open play which you can't do too much about but to switch off and allow your man to get a run at you, to beat you on the edge of the box - it's not good enough."
