Millwall boss: 'We should have scored six or seven'

NEIL Harris is satisfied with the chances Millwall are creating – despite his side drawing a second successive blank against League Two opposition.

The Lions created a number of scoring opportunities against Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium on Tuesday night, but as against Barnet last Saturday they couldn’t find a breakthrough.

Fred Onyedinma went closest to scoring when he hit the post in first-half injury-time, before goalkeeper Joe Fryer saved superbly from a deflected Jed Wallace strike in the second half.

Tom Elliott was also denied by Fryer, while at the other end Tom King was really only called into serious action on one occasion when he saved Alex Samuel’s low drive.

Harris was pleased with a better display from a side that featured 10 changes to the one that started against the Bees last weekend.

“I thought Saturday we were a little bit pre-season-like but today we looked a lot sharper,” he said. “We were very dangerous with the ball but can still brush up defensively.

“I think the only thing lacking tonight was the end product, that final touch in the box. Their keeper was excellent, he made some great saves and there were a few cleared off the line. We should really have scored six or seven goals.

“We played Lincoln when we were away and should have had six or seven, we scored three against the Portuguese team and could have got 12.

“Saturday we didn’t particularly look like scoring but tonight we made bundles of chances again, so that really pleases me.

“We’re creating lots of chances and Moro [Steve Morison] and Gregs’ [Lee Gregory] goal-scoring record has been phenomenal since I took over.

“Tom and Fred have had a huge amount of chances and because we’re making them we’re going to convert them. Maybe we’re just saving them for the season.”
