LIONS boss Neil Harris says his side will "come out fighting" at Bolton tomorrow.

Harris stepped into hotseat at The Den following the sacking of Ian Holloway this week and his first game as interim manager is at the Macron Stadium.

Millwall are eight points adrift of Championship safety – essentially nine given their dire goal difference – heading into the final ten games of the season.

But Harris, speaking to the club's official site, says he has seen a positive reaction from his players since taking over.

"We are in a really precarious position and completely up against it at the moment, but we're going to have a right good go at this," he said.

"Sometimes when the chips are down you have to come out fighting – and we are going to do that."

He added: "The players have all been absolutely outstanding.

"It is always difficult because some players feel responsible for the manager losing his job, and some will be relieved because they think they will get an opportunity.

"I had to finish the first training session early because the tempo of it, and the way I think they wanted to impress me, was vast. I didn't want them to burn out early in the week."
