NEIL Harris admits "every position gives me something to think about" ahead of the last game of the season at Bristol Rovers next Sunday.
After Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Oxford, Millwall need to win at The Memorial Stadium to guarantee their place in the play-offs.
Harris took Tony Craig off at half-time against Oxford, with Shane Ferguson coming on.
He also restored Jordan Archer to the starting XI, after Tom King had played the previous five games. Harris admitted his regular first-choice goalkeeper had a difficult game.
“He shouldn’t be rusty, he had trained for two weeks and knocked on my door to say he wanted to be in the team,” Harris said.
“He’s proven himself to be very good goalkeeper over a period of time, won player of the year last season. [Saturday] wasn’t one of his better moments.
“Every position gives me something to think about next week. What’s important is a calm head. The players have been brilliant this year. There have been a lot of games and a lot of good performances.
“If you give flair teams a goal or two head start they’re going to cause you problems. A flair team did the nitty-gritty against us better. Their centre-halves were better than my centre-forwards. Their centre-forwards were better than my centre-halves, their midfielders were better than my midfielders.
“Some of our defending was schoolboy defending. The first goal was a really good one, the other two were avoidable, maybe even my goalkeeper doing better or us doing better as a defensive unit.
“The rest of the games we’ve played this season go completely out the window next weekend. We go to Bristol and I’ve got to pick the right team in the right formation that I think is good enough to beat Bristol Rovers.
“I’m sure there will be a disappointed person or two in my dressing room coming into next Sunday. But it’s too early now to talk about changes and personnel, because the group as a whole have been fantastic this year.”
Bristol Rovers’ 4-2 defeat to Peterborough last Saturday ended their chances of finishing in the top six.
Oxford also had little to play for, and Harris knows his side can’t afford to take Sunday’s opponents lightly.
“MK Dons won at Southend last week, Oxford won here,” he said. “You’re talking about good teams that have done well and have some really good, attack-minded players.
“They have maybe felt the pressure going into the last weeks of the season and not performed. So there’s no pressure on them and they can come out and perform.”
