NEIL Harris declared himself pleased with Millwall's opening pre-season fixture.
The Lions conceded a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Bromley on Tuesday after goals from John Marquis and Ben Thompson had put them in front.
Marquis' penalty and Thompson's tap-in gave Millwall the advantage before Tony Craig scored a spectacular own goal to level proceedings.
But Harris felt a keenly contested fixture aided his side's efforts to build up fitness for the new season.
"First and foremost we got the minutes," he said.
"Minutes and an extremely competitive fixture were the two things we were after.
"I was delighted with some individual performances and individual play, and team play in small spells.
"I believed we wouldn't be as fluid as we want to be but I think that'll be the case for the next couple of weeks while we get ready for August 8.
"I'm delighted with the two goals we scored and we could have scored more. I would have loved to have won the game."
Harris said his team were disappointed at failing to secure the victory.
"With their first goal we could have defended it better, that's for sure," he explained.
"For their second goal, I don't think Tony will score a better goal than that in his career! But that happens.
"The boys looked disappointed. They wanted to win, and we want a winning mentality."
