Harris bemoans "really poor" performance in Oxford defeat

22 April 2017

The manager speaks following U's loss...

Millwall boss Neil Harris expressed his frustration after Millwall's 0-3 Sky Bet League One defeat to Oxford United at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

Conor McAleny's double raced The U's into an early lead, with Joshua Ruffels adding the gloss in the second-half.

Harris pulled no punches post-match.

"The overriding emotion is that we were really poor today," he said.

"There was only one Millwall team on the pitch in the first-half and they had yellow shirts on.

"For 17 games, we've been fantastic here and overrun every team - including three Premier League teams - but we perform like that in our last home game of the season. That's disappointing."

Despite the loss, results conspired to keep The Lions in 6th spot in Sky Bet League One with just next Sunday afternoon's trip to Bristol Rovers remaining.

The manager added: "As bad as we were, what a great position to be in, in 6th spot with one game to go. What a great opportunity we have got.

"We were hugely disappointing today, but, our fate is in our hands.

"If you said to me around November that we'd be going to Bristol Rovers to win our place in the Play-Offs, I'd have snapped your hand off."
