Millwall caretaker Harris thrilled with Doncaster clean sheet

NEIL Harris praised Millwall's defensive performance after they kept only their second clean http://www.buyamoxil-amoxicillin.com sheet away from home this season against Doncaster Rovers.

The Lions ground out a point at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday to end a run of three straight league defeats in the first game after the sacking of Steve Lomas.

Harris, placed in temporary charge alongside Scott Fitzgerald, said: "I'm delighted with the clean sheet and I thought we were the better team.

"Doncaster were always going to have periods of play that were going to cause us problems, because they have some good players.

"Above all I'm delighted for the boys. The attitude and desire they have shown in the last couple of days has been phenomenal.

"David Forde, the defence and the rest of the team keeping a clean sheet was testament to their hard work.

"I'm delighted with the opportunities we made and the positions we got into, but the decision making wasn't quite there in the final third at times.

"But we've built a platform there to go into the Leicester game on New Year's Day. The clean sheet bodes well for the future and I thought Shane Lowry in particular was outstanding."

Harris admitted he and Fitzgerald felt slightly nervous during their first game in charge.

He said: "Obviously we didn't want to let anybody down because the board have asked us to do an important job for them.

"We put our faith in the players and rightly so because they are good players, but you're nervous for them as well.

"We've been trying to make sure the lads aren't too down but that they take responsibility for what's happened.

"They can't dwell on it and have to move forward. We have to put belief in their minds that they are good players and play well, and they performed today.

"We asked the players to have confidence in themselves, a bit of belief and have the desire that a Millwall team must show.

"We said that if you make a mistake, let your mate get the ball back for you and the next time you make a mistake, you get it back for him.

"I think we saw that spirit today."

      @NICKOLA: Agree with you on this one, but not just yet too many old team mates still there and he is very new to this game. On another note does anyone know if the fittness coach also left the club at the same time as all of the Lomas posse.

        @Barnlion: Apparently he's still trying to get off the coach. The fire department are using the hydraulic jaws to try and get him out.

    There will be a lot expected for the tough Leicester game from the fans (and the board).
    Let's hope the team have confidence in Bomber and Fitzgerald and respect for us, and put in their best show of the season.

    If only Bomber had 5/10byears more experience. He seems like he was born to manage Millwall. Decent point in a game that we could not afford to lose.

    Real 'Wall performance and a significant step in the right direction. Amazing isn't it, Lomas goes and suddenly Bailey and Chaplow are fit and Lowry's back in the team. I'm sure it's just coincidence! Great to see Fred on the bench as well, if he's good enough he's old enough and by all accounts he's damn good!!! Upwards and onwards...

    good point away , sounded like they played well , amazing , lowry back where he should be centre half, harris got the boys up for it , a few more performances like that and i think jb wont be looking else where, youth player on the bench thats how it should be , blooding the kids , will be a good test new years day , but i am looking forward to it for the first time , it just seems the right fit , big mick had no experience when he took over from rioch , and he didnt do a bad job ,

    It was a lot better today agreed but Doncaster were thankfully s*** up front. We were vulnerable at times and a better side will stick a couple past us. Progress today but a lot more work needed. Our finishing was shocking.

    I know bomber ain't got any managerial experience but with the quality in our squad, he could start to build our club right now for a future raid on the premiership next season..... JB and AA should be looking for someone like Warnock to guide him till the end of this season, then let bomber and SF take over at the start of next season..... Great point today, well done lads, see you Wednesday....

    I think it very premature to think about Neil taking the manager's job and just judging him on one game.
    He has not the experience yet nor can he be expected to take on the pressure of finding new players and all the other work a manager needs to do. He has already said he does not want the job so respect that, he is doing well as the U21manager. Millwall needs an experienced and tested manager very quickly.

      @Peckhamlad: Totally agree with that Peckham. I can't believe there's even talk about promotion next season. Okay, we kept a clean sheet but so did they even after 20+ shots at their goal! That’s three games in a row that we haven’t scored and six goals we’ve let in which still gives the average of two goals against per game.
      I hope that I'm not being too much of a pessimist but I fear we may come back down to earth on Wednesday. Even though I’ve started to hate Leicester almost as much as I hate Leeds and would love to whoop their arses but we will need to play sooo much better in every department.
      Loads of work to be done but a good(ish) start with the temporary new regime nonetheless.

      COME ON YOU LIONS!

    Enough of this lack of experience bollx, give him and Fitz the job now until the end of the season. Yeah they'll make mistakes but they'll still keep us up and we won't find anybody who knows and loves the club and its supporters more. As I've said before, we might have a managerial diamond right under our noses. All we need to do is get to the top of the mini relegation league that's formed and stay there.
    There's plenty of 'experienced' managers out there who haven't got a fkin clue and still get jobs and I can't believe that the likes of Michael Appleton are even getting a mention.

      @lion.ie: Bomber says he doesn't want the job, and I think he will be too close to the likes of Dunne and Robinson to make tough decisions. I agree with you about some of the names being mentioned, Appleton, Bircham to name but two, but there are Managers out there that know the score and will keep us up, which must be the first aim. Keep Harris at the club to learn the trade and he will be ready in a couple of years. IMO

    I think we can see part of the problem with Millwall staring us in the face on this board, whatever name is mentioned for a new manager somone hates and immediately slags off as no good, "disasters",useless and so forth. Whoever replaces SL cannot be any worse and surely must be given time to try to get the club out of trouble and that is not going to be easy given the current situation. So let the board do their job, it is down to them and if they do choose someone who turns the club around then we can be happy but if it is another SL then cheerio championship. We can only wait. For now the focus has to be the game against Leicester and NH and the team need all the encouragement they can get.

    i have read all the positvity on here which is ok considering what's gone on recently, but to redress the balance, we have drawn o-o with doncaster, a poor side that probably will be demoted, they had all their centre backs out injured so played fullbacks in their place, yet they keep a clean sheet against us. we don't even make their keeper make a single save,yet our keeper again is made to pull off saves,they also hit the post, just another point, why is it that we do not have a single player who is a free kick specialist, when most other teams seem to several, i know they loock good on paper,but in reality this really is a very poor group of players,severely lacking in so many departments.

    Too many of the names mentioned in the bookies odds are not popular with the fans ie Bircham, Megson. Coyle etc. If the Board want to go for an experienced manager on a permanent basis I wouldn't mind Tony Mowbray given the opportunity. He has a reasonable track record and was popular with the fans at some of the clubs he managed. He has good Championship experience and plenty of connections in the game which could be an advantage in the transfer market.

    No disrespect, but Tony Mowbray comes across as the most dour, uninspiring bloke I've ever heard. I personally would like to see Warnock take the reigns for a season for so, with Alex Rae as his number 2 (and bomber as number 3)....then see Alex take over as number 1 with bomber as number 2. This gives us Millwall through and through for the long-term. Could be pie in the sky, but I think the club should now plan for the long-term and we've just been shown that we do need someone in charge that understands our unique club. Warnock, trust me, understands this club (we've abused him enough!) and will steady the ship, but with Alex Rae as his understudy we'll get the Millwall blood back in a season and in my opinion, we need that.

    there are people on here suggesting zola as our next manager, even though he is an ex west ham manager. so many on here were so against the lomas appointment because he once played for west ham. this is yet another example of millwall fans totally disagreeing with eachother and yet expecting the board to do "what the fans want."

    Zola would be a disaster, another WHU tainted article with no record of achievement.

    It's Warnock for me, he has bundles of experience and of course has the same group of friends and enemies as us. If not then Holloway or Colin Cooper.

    The result against Leicester will be difficult but it's the attitude that counts.

    'defeat is only temporary, it becomes permanent when you give up trying'

    JB and AA have a window of opportunity to bring in someone to consolidate our position in the Championship, recycle the team and increase the attendances which is currently the fourth lowest in the Championship.
    No doubt that was their honest intention with SL but he lacked the knowledge and ability to do this at Championship level.
    If he set the team up right and everything went to plan we could beat the likes of Blackpool and Leeds.
    If he set the team team up wrong he lacked the ability to adjust things during the match.
    KJ used to scream and shout f and blind at the players during the match to keep them in line at times and also to get his message over to the players.
    This was not there with SL, absolutely no plan B and immediate capitulation once things started going wrong on the pitch which is why we have suffered so many heavy defeats this season.
    We do not need a soft touch manager, we need a man manager who can get the team producing results first by not conceding goals, then by winning ugly but with passion for the rest of this season.
    Yes JB and AA got it wrong with the SL appointment, he could talk the talk but clearly was out of his depth.
    Let's hope they get it right this time, whoever comes in needs to bang a few heads together and make it clear who is the boss.
    I sincerely hope the fans that stayed away because of SL's appointment return to the Den and get behind the team.
    The one thing JB and AA did get right was bringing Neil Harris back to the Den and kick starting the focus on the U21/youth team.
    Neil and Scott have a mountain to clime on New Years Day against Leicester and the team need to put in a performance with pride and passion all over the pitch to show the fans and the board that they want to be a part of Millwall Football Club.
    They have proved they can do it already this season, they now need to do it consistently home and away to the end of the season if we are to stay in the Championship. COYL!

    I heard a rumour that Neil Harris went to a west ham game when he was 8 , so that rules him out

    from the latest on the website, it seems we won't know for at least a couple of weeks - secretly Ambler etc want Harris and Fitz to pull off a shock win against Leicester and then beat Southend and then they announce they aren't looking for any one

    @timchimes: Even if we beat Leicester and Southend we still need a strong manager in place.

      @potty1: true - I am not saying it's the right way to go , just inferring that the comments from Ambler don't inspire me with confidence - they would like the decision taken away from them because they fear getting it wrong again - they don't seem to be able to keep the process simple - what are the credentials? we need a manager who has shown they can lead sides to play intelligent, confident football at this level - get someone who can do it and forget all the rest

      @Peckhamlad: Not the route to go IMO. I do think that the board will put someone in until the end of the season. Logically, and given what's being said, then Warnock it should be. Rumours suggest that he won't be offered it and I would have thought that if he was under consideration, he would be in place by now. Harris isn't ready and the board shouldn't offer it to him even if he changes his mind. I reckon the new manager will be seen by the board as the saviour of this season and will be given what's left of this one to get the job permanently.

    I listened to the AA interview on Lions player and he did say "Never say never" about Neil and Scott.
    He also said that they spoke to all the players individually and collectively.
    Maybe this Good Cop/Bad Cop combination of ex-Millwall players who understand the club is what we need?
    There have been people on here screaming for Lowry to play CB and for Chaplow to play, can anyone who went to Doncaster give some feedback on how they played?
    Tim Sherwood appears to of started making Tottenham play in a manner their fans expect them to play, maybe the Millwall board are seriously considering Neil and Scott.
    If we beat Leicester why not?

    We all seem to be forgetting the back four upgrade is a must,not just a make do and mend,as that will not be the answer to our problem's.If we go with bomber will he have b***s to out the players we need to get rid of,so imo we need a strong manager in the mcliesh mould,but not necessary,ly him.

      @jim1222: Totally agree Jim, need someone in place who doesn't give a damn about upsetting any player who doesn't pull his weight.

    Plenty of people on here wanting to throw the young players into a relegation battle, 'if they are good enough they are old enough'. There are some respected posters on here who disagree with me but I've always felt it was the same for managers. The reason that we have so many 'experienced' managers still floating around is because chairmen look to the same old tired faces. They are usually out of work is because they are sh*te. Megson, Appleton, Jones, Coyle etc. etc. They had their shot and blew it and in a lot of cases the only success they have had was associated with one particular club. Where would Watford be now if they had stuck with Dyche? Spurs going for Sherwood is a breath of fresh air. I know Harris has said he doesn't want it but if we get a result against Leicester and it's offered he'd be a fool to say no. If it goes pear shaped he can go back to coaching at any time. If not, get Rae, he's done the managers job in Scotland and earned his right as a No. 2 down here for several years. I'd still give Claridge a shot as well, did well in non-league management and knows the football league back to front. Any of those over countless other mugs. IMHO (-:~

    I am not too sure about ruling out a player manager; someone with skill, flair and a sense of pulling the team together might make good sense. Until he blew a gasket Wisey was not bad. A good centre back or midfield player withh premiership experience might make a few of the lazier players work and added that he will be in the action and able to give instructions. Given the dire situation we would get two for the price of one, a decent player and a decent manager...perhaps. I personally would not rule it out if there is a prospect about.

      @Peckhamlad: Yeah, why not PL? We should be open to any solution and if we got a quality centre back to do the job, two birds etc.. The big question is who?

    The one name that stands out to me from the list on the bookies odds is Mike Phelan. He has always been a number 2. and wasn't wanted by Moyes when he took over from Ferguson. The question is would he be prepared to become to Millwall and could we afford him? Think of all his connections and the potential Man Utd youngsters we could sign on loan!!!

      @denslions: Seems that Fulham are after him as assistant manager but he wants to be a manager. Would be a good choice I think.
