NEIL Harris says it’s crucial Millwall take advantage of their early kick-off at Swindon on Saturday and move back into the top six in League One with a win.
The Lions’ clash with the Robins starts at 1.30pm, giving them the chance to leapfrog Southend in sixth.
But Harris says Millwall must first tighten up at the back after they conceded three goals against Rochdale on Tuesday.
“There will be reminders, we’ll get back on the training ground Thursday, the boys were disappointed with how they performed,” Harris said. “There will be split emotions that we haven’t been as good as we have been and should have won the game, but still scored three goals.
“There will be some individually disappointed people because they haven’t played as well as they can. But it’s a team game, another hurdle getting to 60 points with nine games to go is a good mark.
“What we now have is the biggest game of the season away at Swindon. We play before everybody and we have to go and win the game.
“Swindon will be really dangerous, they’ve got some flair players. We have to go and make sure we’re better defensively but keep the same attacking intent.”
Meanwhile, Harris was dissatisfied with the performance of referee Darren England at Spotland, after the official appeared to award a throw-in to the wrong side just before Rochdale’s second goal in the 3-3 draw.
“I can’t say too much about the referee, but when you’ve got Rochdale fans singing, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ when he awards them a throw-in, it really says it all.
“But, listen, it happens. There was a lot he got slightly wrong. Darren is a nice fellow, he’s just had an off-night.”
