MILLWALL chairman John Berylson believes new manager Neil Harris can bring "pride, heart and character" back to The Den.
Lions legend Harris has been put in charge of first-team affairs for the final ten games of the season and will be considered for the job on a full-time basis if he does well.
Harris wants to give fans "Millwall-style performances" as the club battles relegation but, with the club eight points adrift of safety, is not promising that he can save them.
But Berylson says Harris' first priority is to restore the Lions' fighting spirit and rebuild confidence in the dressing room.
"I want to see pride, heart and character in our last ten games – we haven't seen a lot of that this season," Berylson told the Southwark News.
"We haven't seen a lot of what makes us enjoy Millwall. I think Neil can bring that back with his enthusiasm and attitude."
Harris shared the reins with Scott Fitzgerald during a three-game spell as co-caretaker last season but, this time around, has the top job to himself.
"Neil dreaded doing this last year and wanted to be back coaching the U21s as soon as possible," added Berylson.
"But now he's made it very clear he wants to be in charge and we'll see what happens at the end of the season.
"Is he potentially a strong candidate? I guess he is – and we won't be interviewing anyone else at the moment.
"He's our manager for the next ten games and has got my full support. What impressed me this time was his approach to the challenge – he's embraced it and is looking forward to it.
"This is a different Neil Harris compared to a year-and-a-half ago in terms of relishing the responsibility.
"He has much more self-confidence, he knows the team and the young players, and now he has a vision for what he wants to achieve.
"He loves Millwall, and I like the youth and energy he brings to it.
"Our biggest weakness this season has been scoring goals and Neil was an excellent striker, and that point wasn't lost on me."
Harris, who will take charge of the Lions for the first time against Bolton this weekend, will consider making tactical changes from Ian Holloway's regime.
He told Lions Player: "There is lots to look at between now and Saturday. Certain people will be given an opportunity to grab a shirt and play.
"Will I tinker with the style of play? Possibly. I'll try and put some Millwall-style beliefs in them and the way we are going to play.
"It starts Saturday at Bolton, which is a very difficult game but one we will look forward to."
