Harris wary of "unpredictable" Coventry challenge

3 February 2017

"We must start turning draws into victories," insists Lions boss

Neil Harris has pressed his side to turn promising performances into results ahead of Saturday's Coventry City clash.

The Lions are riding the coattails of the play-off places, having drawn their last three outings away from The Den. 

"We have to put pressure on ourselves to turn draws into victories," Harris told millwallfc.co.uk "Our home record has been really good lately. Away from home we have to get ourselves ahead and use that momentum to push into the play-off positions."

Millwall have conceded just one goal across their last five matches and the manager has stressed the importance of maintaining the "hunger" to keep a clean sheet.

"Obviously earlier in the season we were letting in too many goals. We have looked solid and kept our shape well, that must continue this weekend."

The Sky Blues are anchored to the bottom of the Sky Bet League One table, having picked up just two points in the last three months and will be without suspended skipper Jordan Willis. 

Meanwhile, Watford loanee Michael Folivi will undergo a fitness test after suffering a knock to his ankle.

"We will have to be prepared because we know it could be a difficult afternoon," Chopper added.

"They are going through some tough times and we have to be ready for whatever they throw at us."
