We can't get carried away, insists Harris

23 February 2018

Neil Harris has urged his Millwall players not to get get carried away with their impressive start to 2018 and to instead focus on getting one back over Burton Albion.

The Lions will go in search of a fourth straight away League win on Saturday against an opponent that prevailed 1-0 in the reverse fixture in November.

"We need to forget previous results, it's all about Burton now," Harris told millwallfc.co.uk.

"They came to our place earlier in the season and absolutely robbed us of the points. They had one shot in 90 minutes and scored. We want to put that right at the weekend.

"I said to the players after Tuesday's game, 'well done, 11th in the League is a great position to be in, I'm proud of you and you should be proud of yourselves' - but I expect more, we can do better.

"We've left so many points on the pitch. Teams have beaten us that never deserved to beat us this year. Between now and the end of the season, we've got to prove ourselves by beating the teams that have beaten us.

"We need to carry on amassing as many points as quickly as possible.

"My sole aim this season was to get to 50 points. We're on 45 now, so we have to pick up five points from the last 13 games."

Millwall have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the fixture.
