Harris pleased with "sharp and dangerous" Millwall in Stevenage draw

The manager speaks after Lamex Stadium friendly...

25 July 2017

Millwall boss Neil Harris was pleased with his side's performance in Tuesday night's stalemate with Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium.

The Lions threatened over large parts of the encounter and if not for some stunning goalkeeping, would have come away with a handsome win.

Harris echoed those sentiments as he told millwallfc.co.uk: "On Saturday [at Barnet] we looked very pre-season like. But tonight, we looked sharper. We were very dangerous with the ball.

"We can still brush up defensively, we can still tighten up at the back, but the only thing lacking tonight was the end product - that final touch in the box. Their goalkeeper made some great saves.

"Tonight we've made bundles of chances - that really pleases me. Tom [Elliott] and Fred [Onyedinma] have had huge amounts of chances. Because we're making them, we're going to convert them over the course of the season."

The striking duo of Elliott and Onyedinma impressed and the manager said of the latter: "He's a dangerous player. He has pace and power and gets himself into some really difficuly situations for defenders to deal with.

"He and Tom looked a dangerous pairing. They had the raw attributes of a good partnership."
