Harris pleased with "dominant" Millwall performance

Lions boss delighted with Vale victory

Neil Harris spoke of Millwall's dominance and excellent movement as they disposed of Port Vale on Tuesday night.

Goals from Aiden O'Brien and Jake Cooper secured a routine 2-0 Sky Bet League One win at The Den and the manager was delighted with his side's performance after the game.

The Lions are now unbeaten in 12 games and remain in 6th spot in the League table.

"I think we were dominant," said Harris.

"I thought some of our football was fantastic tonight - I really enjoyed watching it. There were times when we gave it away cheaply, but some of our movement off the ball was excellent.

"Some of the chances we created were outstanding. I said to the players that I'm disappointed we didn't go on to get four or five tonight. We lost our way a little bit when I made the substitutions, but we were dominant and well worthy of a clean sheet.

"Attacking wise, we looked a threat all evening."

The Lions secured a sixth shut-out in seven games with the victory. Along with capturing the signature of Cooper, a case of going "back to basics" is the reasoning behind such a feat, according to Harris.

"We were letting too many goals in earlier this season. We worked hard on it and didn't always get the rub of the green. It wasn't just the back four, it was the whole team.

"We've gone back to basics and brought Jake in from Reading. Certain players fit into your style of play and he has slotted in nicely beside two experienced pros in Byron [Webster] and Tony [Craig].

"Shaun Cummings is also an important cog in the back four at right-back."
