Millwall boss Neil Harris was pleased with a "dominant display" in Saturday afternoon's 2-0 Sky Bet Championship win at Reading.

The Lions sealed back-to-back away wins in style as goals from Mahlon Romeo and Lee Gregory earned all three points at the Madejski Stadium.

Harris expressed his joy at Millwall's decision-making and concentration in the victory.

“I thought it was a very dominant display," he said. "Without the ball, we were very impressive and disciplined and we looked a really good Millwall team.

“With the ball, we made really good decisions. Sometimes against Reading concentration has to be key – they keep the ball at times, but when you’ve got it you have to be focussed on what you’re trying to achieve.

“Today, it was all about realising where the space will be on the pitch and I thought we were excellent. We should’ve been in front at half-time. We were a threat from open play as well as set-plays and I was really pleased to get the two goals in the second-half."

The manager also praised his front pairing and the 2,661-strong fanbase that roared their team to three points on the road.

“The front pair were excellent and that’s another assist for Steve Morison – his fourteenth in all competitions – and another goal for Lee Gregory. They were outstanding. When we defend as a team, we do it from the front. Their decision-making of when to press and when to cut off space for passes was brilliant.

"Today was a great day for our club. The fans were different class. There was one fanbase out there that was really united and together with their team. They've travelled round the country and now that's two away wins in a row. We're really pleased."
