Harris calls for ruthless performance against Hull

21 November 2017

Neil Harris has called on his Millwall side to become more ruthless in killing off games ahead of the visit of Hull.

The Lions, who drew 2-2 in a see-sawing affair with Sunderland on Saturday, were in control at the Stadium of Light until Adam Matthews' second-half equaliser pegged back the visitors.

The display drew a mixed reaction from the manager, who viewed the result as a 'point gained' but admitted there's room for improvement in the final third ahead of Tuesday's Sky Bet Championship fixture at The Den.

"I was pleased with so many aspects," Harris told "Some of our build-up play was excellent.

"We put them under pressure and I think we can get box to box quite easily in our style of play, but around the penalty area we have to be more technical and a little bit more ruthless."

The Tigers are without a win in four following the 2-2 draw with Ipswich Town and travel to SE16 in 20th position.

"It's a big game back at The Den," Harris added.

"Hull are another team down from the Premier League, stacked with good players. They are below us in the League and it's another opportunity to pick up points.

"It's also another chance for my players to react to the Burton Albion loss at The Den a couple of weeks ago.

"We dominated that game from start to finish and should have won the game comfortably but we were done by a sucker punch - it's time to put that game right."
