Harris asks for togetherness as Blades enter Lions' Den

The manager looks ahead to United clash...

28 September 2018

Millwall boss Neil Harris has stressed the importance of producing standards when Sheffield United visit The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The Lions host Chris Wilder's side looking to get back their League form back on track having not won since a 2-1 victory over Derby County on 18th August, and the manager has spoken of a "real desire" on the training pitch ahead of this weekend's game.

Speaking in his matchday programme notes, Harris said: "We find ourselves in a position new to us as a group, myself, my staff and my players, where we are in a run of frustrating results.

"What I do know is that the determination and ability will shine through. There's a real desire on the training pitch to keep learning and improving, to cut out the slight errors that are leading to a lot of bad luck at the moment, and ultimately we know in football that what goes around comes around.

"We have to keep doing the basics very well. At QPR in the second half we did them very well, as we did at West Brom for 70 minutes, until conceding from a set-play."

Harris goes on to explain how his side's performances at The Den so far this season offer hope with regards to climbing up the table.

"Here at The Den, in the majority of League and Cup games, we've had some outstanding form. We've played four top class teams and should have 12 points. That's not an exaggeration, that's fact.

"We need to make sure we continue that home form [on Saturday] and get back to winning ways. That comes down to individual performances and producing the standards that they've set over time for me, and that we continue to work hard and implement our style of play on the opponent.

"What doesn't chage is your unwaivering support of your football club. Now, I ask again for you to support myself and my players during the course of the game and in this tricky spell we find a way, together, of coming out the other side and starting to climb the table again."
