Harris: Millwall will not be fazed by their difficult run-in

NEIL Harris says Millwall won't be fazed by their difficult end to the season, insisting: We're not worried about who we play.

The Lions take on four of the Championship's top ten during the final run-in, starting with third-placed Watford at The Den on Saturday.

Millwall are seven points adrift of safety after Rotherham beat Brighton on Monday and will need to win the majority of their remaining fixtures to avoid relegation.

Games against high-flying Derby and Wolves also lie ahead but Harris can’t wait to lock horns with sides who are battling for promotion.

"They're great games and give the players a chance to challenge themselves against some top teams," he told the Southwark News.

"We'll test anybody so we're not concerned about playing Watford.

"We've just beaten an in-form Charlton team in a local derby and we should have beaten a top Brentford side after playing really well, so while we're very respectful of Watford we aren't concerned about playing them.

"We're not worried about who we play.

"We know Watford a very good team with some dangerous players – players who have scored a lot of goals this season – but we're also doing very well ourselves at the moment.

"We're fighting for two completely different things – they're going for promotion and we're looking for survival – but it's all to play for.

"We're at home again and having set the bar against Brighton, we raised it against Charlton and we've got to perform at least as well as we did in those games, if not better, to beat Watford."

A raucous crowd of 14,772 inspired Harris' side to victory over the Addicks and he's hoping for another cracking Den atmosphere this weekend.

"It costs a lot of money to come to football and bring your kids with you – I know that because I'm a football fan myself – so fans can't come every week," he said.

"But I think every fan who was at The Den last Friday would have loved what they saw from their team and if they can come again on Saturday, that would be great.

"I can promise the fans that they won't be short-changed in terms of the Millwall spirit and attitude of the players. We'll see if that's enough to win but we will have a right go.

"The fans pay their money and demand to they see a fighting performance and I can guarantee they'll get one against Watford."

    i watched the Watford game earlier in the week and they looked a good footballing side if given the space to play,
    so we need to be right in their faces for 90 mins. close em down,tough tackling and the fans need to scare the sh1te out of them and we can do it....
