MILLWALL boss Neil Harris expressed his delight at securing a first home league win of the season.
The Lions had previously lost all four of their league games at The Den this campaign but saw off Rochdale 3-1 to secure their first of the new season.
And Harris has said it was a “relief” to finally win at home but wants his side to take their recent good form into Tuesday night’s trip to the DW Stadium when the Lions face Wigan.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be honest,” Harris said. “I thought my players were outstanding.
“We scored three high-quality goals. With the ball and without the ball I thought we were excellent.
“That is four wins in five for us so confidence is high. It is a weight off my mind because we are a long way into September and the first home win has not come.
“What has been bizarre is as much as we want to win here it has been difficult, not just for me, my staff and the squad but for the fans. I understand that because I’ve got friends who are Millwall fans.
“They get stick at work and things like that so I understand that, but as a group we’ve not felt pressurised that we haven’t won at home.
He added: “We played really against Southend last week and they scored two goals from two chances, so we knew it was coming.
“I must admit it is a bit of a relief to get it today, but it is another massive step forward for us.
“What we can’t do now is take two steps backwards, or even a quarter of a step backwards. We’ve got to go to Wigan on Tuesday, take the game to them and make sure we continue our good away form.”
