"Both my centre-halves were outstanding," says Harris

Millwall boss delighted with Shrews win...

Millwall manager Neil Harris was delighted with his side's performance in the 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday night at Greenhous Meadow.

Byron Webster and Shaun Hutchinson sent The Lions into a 2-0 lead, but Shaun Whalley reduced the arrears on 90 minutes.

Millwall, however, held out for a priceless win in their pursuit of a Play-Off place.

Speaking on Webster's goal, which was hit on the half-volley from just inside the penalty area, Harris said: "It was a composed finish from a boy with very good technical ability for his size. He was set up well by Steve Morison as well.

"The game was ebbing and flowing, it was on a real knife-edge. We got ourselves into some good positions in and around the box."

Harris also reserved special praise for his goal-scoring centre-halves, Webster and Hutchinson.

"Both my centre-halves were outstanding. Yes, we'd love for the front three of Morison, Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien to add to the amount of goals they've scored in recent times, but sometimes goals need to come from other areas of the pitch - especially at this stage of the season.

"To have centre-halves popping up with goals is really key. Our application, desire and spirit was top draw tonight."

Next up for Millwall is Saturday's local derby with Gillingham - and it's a game the manager is already looking forward to.

"We had a little blip, but we're now out of it and we go into a local derby with Gillingham on Saturday in high spirits and good form. We'll play on the front foot and we want to make sure we add to our points tally so we're in the top six come April 30th."
