MILLWALL manager Neil Harris feels his side will push on after securing a first home win of the season.
The Lions won on their own patch at the fifth attempt with the 1-0 dismissal of Peterborough in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.
And Harris is hoping his side can take the winning feeling into the away double-header against Crewe and Port Vale when the international break concludes, before a “massive” home game against Southend.
“I think for me, personally, it puts to bed once and for all not being able to win at home,” Harris said.
“We will have a positive environment now, that was a big win for us and the next game here against Southend will be massive.
“Now we have to continue our good away record with two tough games against Crewe and Port Vale.
“Then we have to continue what we produced against Peterborough in our next home game against Southend.”
Due to international call-ups, Millwall’s clash with Port Vale that was supposed to take place this weekend was rescheduled for September 15.
Harris is thankful for a break that he will use to examine some aspects of performances so far this season he feels need improvement.
He said: “Now we’ve come off that win, the boys are buzzing and we want to go again.
“We can use that momentum from tonight to carry us through the next 12 days, but we now have an opportunity.
“I’ve said to the boys we've had a good result tonight and played some really good football at times but we can do better.
“We can be better defensively, in midfield and going forward and it gives us a chance to have some video analysis of the games we've played and do a lot more work on the training ground.”
