NEIL Harris has dismissed any idea that his players feel added pressure playing at The Den.
Millwall exited the Capital One Cup at home at the hands of Barnet on Tuesday night but Harris refused to make any excuses.
With David Forde, Shaun Cummings and Lee Gregory set to come back into the side for the visit of Coventry on Saturday, he also added he expects a much better performance this weekend as the Lions bid to make it two wins from two in the league.
He said: “There shouldn’t be any pressure in the group playing at home. If I think there is then players won’t play.
“I’ll be patient with them. I thought some of it (Tuesday) night was really good but some of it was poor.
“I need to look back on the game again but we’re under no illusions that we need to be better at home than we have been, and we will be.
“Whatever team I pick, I can accept poor performances but not continued poor performances.
“I can’t wait for Saturday now. We had 18 shots in the penalty area and that should be enough to win any game.
“We didn’t so we move on to Saturday. It’ll be tough against Coventry because they’re a good side, but we will learn from our mistakes and look forward to putting things right at the weekend.
“When you have a defeat the first thing you want to do is put it right and we have the perfect opportunity to do that.”
Harris was also pleased with Jordan Archer’s debut but rued all those missed chances.
“He made some good saves. It was his debut for the club and that was one of a lot of positives for me.
“But, as I said, if you don’t take more of the chances you’ve created you have to make sure you keep them out at the other end. It is a collective team effort.”
