MILLWALL boss Neil Harris wants his players to continue to show their confidence in matches. 

The Lions go to Port Vale tonight having won their last two games against Peterborough at home in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and away to Crewe in the league.

And Harris believes the players are taking “small steps” in translating their new-found confidence into higher performance levels.

“The mood has been fantastic,” Harris said: “The spirit within the squad, the togetherness in the group is top drawer.

“We’ve spoken about that as a group to the boys in the dressing room and at the training ground and that confidence has to be translated into the games. We've seen small steps in the last couple of wins.”

With two away games in four days, the Lions boss has said he and his staff are making sure the players are prepared for the trip to Vale Park and have recovered sufficiently ahead of the clash.

“We do everything we can do recovery-wise,” Harris added. “We get the players to eat the right food and drink the right drinks and get the right amount of sleep.

“We’re doing all we can after games to make sure they recover as quickly as possible, and then Monday morning the first thing we did, knowledge-wise, was regarding Port Vale.

“As a player you want as much information as you can take on to give you the best chance to win the game.

“My staff and I started preparing for this game at ten to five on Saturday evening."
