Lions boss takes positives from busy festive period

Neil Harris took plenty of positives from a festive period that has seen Millwall stay in touch with the League One Play-Off pack after taking thier 10th point from a possible 12 with Monday's 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

Following successive wins against Charlton (3-1), Swindon (2-0) and Gillingham (2-1) The Lions headed into their early Bank Holiday kick-off at the Cherry Red Records Stadium looking to make it four in four.

But a physical encounter, which remarkably had just one booking, saw The Lions hold their own against a big, imposing Dons side.

"It was a physical game, a fast game – everything that I expected," Chopper told "It was a challenging game. We had to deal with a lot of physicality, a lot of balls into our box.

"I thought AFC Wimbledon made it extremely difficult for us, to be in front twice and not win the game was disappointing for us, but it's a tough place to come. The over-riding feeling today is disappointment at the result, but I'm very proud of my players.

"It's been a great effort from the boys; it's not just about the starting XI, it's about everybody. The squad is competitive, the squad push each other.

"We now need to make sure we build on this Christmas period with 10 points in four games. We will enjoy the distraction of next week and the FA Cup tie with Bournemouth, and then it's straight back into it with a League game at Charlton."
