RECORD goalscorer Neil Harris says he is delighted that his former Millwall teammates have secured Championship survival.
Harris left the Lions to join hometown club Southend in June 2011, but has kept a close eye on goings-on at The Den since his departure.
And while he admits the club's 'second season syndrome' was by no means a surprise, the 34-year-old believes Millwall are well-placed to succeed next campaign.
"Yeah, I saw it coming," he told Lions Live. "Not through fault of anybody, but when you go up and up like we did, you have to take a step back before you can go again.
"I didn't necessarily foresee it being a struggle for so long, but I didn't think this season would be as productive as in years gone by.
"I'm absolutely delighted with the way the boys have finished the season, and I saw them score some fantastic goals at Ipswich. It looks positive again for next year.
"It's been a testing year for everyone – players, staff and fans. It seems to me everyone has dug in together."
