Harris lauds game management in Robins victory

Read from the manager...

7 April 2018

Millwall boss Neil Harris praised The Lions' two goals in Saturday's 2-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Bristol City at The Den.

Jed Wallace and Steve Morison hit the target as The Lions extended their unbeaten run in the League to 15 matches, moving up to seventh place in the table in the process, one point off the top six.

The manager stated that certain aspects of his side's play were "as good as it has been" in his three-year tenure in SE16.

"Bristol had all the ball, but I'm struggling to think of a chance in our penalty area - bar the one that goes over late on," he said. "I thought the two goals we scored were befitting of the man we had a minute's applause for before the game, Ray Wilkins. He would've loved those.

"I thought our game management was brilliant today. Lee Johnson picked a team to play around and between us and keep the ball, but our shape, organisation and discipline from my players was as good as it has been in my time in charge.

"The first goal was first class and the second, if that was in the Premier League it would be shown time and time again. I'm really pleased.

"If we got the third straight after we scored the second, then we may have gone on to get four and five, but I'm certainly not going to bemoan those lack of chances."
