Harris "buzzing" with movement of Millwall striker Gregory

INTERIM Millwall manager Neil Harris was thrilled with Lee Gregory's performance at Bolton – and will start him up front against Brighton tonight.

Gregory, who is the Lions' top scorer in the Championship this season, missed a big chance during the 2-0 defeat but Harris was delighted with the striker's overall display.

Both Gregory and Aiden O'Brien were thwarted by goalkeeper Ben Amos after being put through on goal in the second half.

Harris, though, was very pleased with the duo.

"There was so much good play and so many positives on Saturday," he said.

"We needed a little more quality in the final third but it's important that players who play well get the opportunity to do well again.

"Lee's movement was scary and that didn't go unnoticed by everybody in the ground, including Neil Lennon.

"He did everything right for that chance – he could've gone down and won a penalty but he stayed on his feet like a good centre forward and tried to score.

"Everything was good except for the ball going in the net but I'm buzzing with Lee.

"Aiden was fantastic for the whole game, in and out of possession.

"He was gutted when he came off because he understood the difference between first team football and playing for the U21s.

"Normally he goes through and slides it into the net and that's the difference.

"But unless youngsters are given those opportunities to find that out for themselves, then they're never going to know."

    Can't really blame Gregory for missing that chance, he was under a lot of pressure.

      @LionMan: Can't blame him for missing? you winding me up?....he's a fcuking centre forward, if a centre forward gets a yard on a defender in and around the box in this league with just the keeper to beat, he has to score

      Our fans make me laugh......so fickle. O'Brien and Gregory should both have scored Saturday, fact. They didn't so we lost. Under Harris it appears that that's okay to most but under Holloway it wasn't and was his fault?

      Had we taken a third of the chances we'd created under Holloway would we be in the position we are?

      Not sticking up for Ollie, he fell short of the task but not sure what the difference is?
