Millwall boss Harris calls for big Bury crowd

Lions manager praises fans ahead of Shakers test

Promotion-chasing Millwall return to League One action on Saturday and boss Neil Harris is calling on supporters to turn up in their numbers for the visit of Bury.

The Lions haven't lost in the League since December - a run of 14 games - and sit sixth in the table with 11 fixtures remaining this season.

Harris' men have won four of their last five at The Den thanks in part to some superb support from the stands and the Lions boss is hopeful of even greater backing as the campaign reaches its most critical stage.

"The fans have been exceptional," he told

"We've been playing well and getting results for a sustained period of the season and when we've needed that little extra to get over the line in games the fan base have been on hand to help us.

"I can't stress enough just how much of a difference it makes when there is a big crowd at The Den behind us. It makes life difficult for the opposition and gives our group that added strength they need to put the ball in the net, keep it out of ours and earn results.

"Following your club is an expensive exercise at the best of times, especially so when you've had as many games as we've had this season, and it's important for me to say how much it is appreciated.

"We've got four home games left, starting on Saturday, and one big push from everyone connected with the club is going to be key if we're to achieve our objective this season."
