Millwall improving after 'disastrous' September

MILLWALL manager Neil Harris feels his side is finally showing the signs of recovery after a “disastrous” run.

The Lions have lost just two out of their last nine games since a 3-1 mauling at the hands of Port Vale at the end of September.

Harris’ men put on a virtuoso display in the 4-0 victory over Bristol Rovers to move up to eighth place in League One, only one point off the play-off spots.

But Harris believes his squad still have some way to go until they are performing at their best.

“I have a fantastic group of lads that love playing for this club,” Harris said. “I think people would have questioned us as a group in September.

“I think we still have a long, long way to go to be better than what we have been – but we are certainly moving in the right direction, and people will take notice of Millwall moving in the right direction.

“We had a disastrous September, we only picked up two points. It was a difficult spell of us, and we fell behind.

Harris added: “We haven’t panicked but we are nowhere near where I feel we can get to as a group.

“I said to the boys it felt like a youth club at times before the game the amount of youngsters we have in that dressing room.

“Out of the 20-man squad 13 are under 23 or under. It was very young, and sometimes that gives you a bit of inexperience. It also gives you energy and youthfulness.”
