NEIL Harris says Millwall's attacking play during their 2-2 draw with Brentford on Saturday has set the standard for the rest of the season.
The Lions scored twice in a Championship fixture for the first time since November at Griffin Park – but a late Bees comeback scuppered their hopes of three valuable points.
Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien finished off two well-worked moves as Millwall – the second-lowest scorers in the division – showed a rare clinical edge in front of goal.
And Harris said: "I've asked the players to give me everything they've got – work ethic, attitude, desire and a hunger to play for this club.
"They're taking in a style of play that we're coaching into them and trying to produce that on the pitch.
"In my three games so far, they've tried to do that. I can't ask for any more than that.
"But what I have said to the guys is, 'you've got the shape, the structure and a foundation to give us a foothold in games, now can we go that step further and have an end product?'
"The one thing that has been missing is end product and on Saturday we had that in abundance.
"They've set a standard now, with and without the ball, and we certainly have to take that into the Charlton game.
"We're getting closer and closer to three points, and I've promised them that once they get one win, they'll get a second and a third."
Harris added that the support of 1,614 Lions fans in west London gave his players a major boost.
"It's a big thing for the boys, " he said. "They've been searching for that. The unhappiness of the fans towards the manager was really difficult for them.
"Dave Livermore and I have been asked to guide the players to play for this club – that's all. We're trying to get our ideas across and show the players what the fans demand.
"If the fans cheer, clap, sing and support the players, like they did at Brentford, then they must be doing it."
Despite conceding two late goals – one a penalty and the other a shot through a crowd of bodies – David Forde gave a near-faultless performance against Brentford.
"He's a top goalkeeper and made some really good saves," said Harris.
"Brentford are a really good side, they're exciting, they move the ball well and they're a benchmark for where we want to get to as a club.
"We knew we'd have to defend well and we knew that our 'keeper needed to have a good game for us to get something out of it. Fordey really deserved to be on the winning team."
