I will get a reaction from my players, declares Harris

The manager's thoughts before Brewers clash...

3 November 2017

Neil Harris has backed his Millwall side to bounce back from the mid-week defeat to Sheffield Wednesday when they return to The Den against Burton Albion.

The Lions, who fell 2-1 at Hillsborough on Tuesday night, will seek to return to winning ways in the final Sky Bet Championship match before the November international break.

While the Lions boss says there was plenty to be pleased with of the performance, Harris admits there were some 'sloppy' aspects that will be addressed before the visit of the Brewers.

"The application, the desire and the passion was all there on Tuesday night," Harris told

"But there were some moments where we were a little sloppy. Knowing the players like I do, they will be disappointed and I will get a reaction from them on Saturday.

"Burton is a massive game, really huge game for us. It's a game that we certainly want to compete in and make sure we don't lose.

"Our home form has been excellent this season and we will look to continue that."

Millwall will be without the services of defenders Byron Webster (knee injury) and Jake Cooper (suspension) on Saturday, paving the way for Tony Craig or Mahlon Romeo to start their first League game of the season.

"I was disappointed that Jake was sent off on Tuesday but that means there is an opportunity for someone else to come in," Harris added.

"Whoever is selected will have a job to do and i'll expect them to perform."
