The manager prepares for the visit of Wolves

Boxing Day test under the microscope...

24 December 2017

Lions boss Neil Harris may ring the changes for the Boxing Day visit of Wolves, saying he will give his players 'every opportunity' to recover for the fixture against the League leaders.

The matches continue to come thick and fast for The Lions, who are navigating a taxing run of games over the Christmas period.

"I won't name my team until Boxing Day at the ground, which is unlike us," the manager told millwallfc.co.uk

"We need to see how everyone has pulled up after the Derby match. We got a few knocks and I will give people time to recover.

"We have two great fixtures now, Wolves on Boxing Day and then QPR at home and they are matches that all my players want to be involved in."

The Lions were unable to extend their unbeaten run at Derby on Saturday afternoon.

But the manager believes it was an uncharacteristic five minutes of madness that saw the Rams put three past the visitors.

"I hope my players, the fans, and my staff isolate the five minute period at Derby," he added.

"We have had a great first half of the season and we are in a healthy position, but we want to be better and we should be better. We should be more clinical on the pitch in front of goal.

"We are not quite there yet and that is probably the message to the players - don't get ahead of yourselves. 

"We have to make sure we are at our best everyday and can't step off the gas.

"We can't think we are better than what we are and the loss at Derby was a nice little reality check for my players that we have to be a good Millwall team and as good as we can be individually."
