Millwall boss: 'Away form won't affect players'

NEIL Harris insists Millwall’s away form won’t be a mental burden when they go to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City next Saturday.

Millwall haven’t won away in the league in 10 games since last April and Saturday’s loss at Brentford was their sixth on the road in eight games this season.

But Harris pointed out Millwall didn’t win away until January in their last campaign, before seven victories in their next 10 games saw them shoot up the table to finish just three points off the play-offs.

Norwich have the best Championship form of any side over the last 10 games, and are level on points with Leeds at the top of the table.

“It won't affect the group,” Harris said. “We went a long time last year and then we won seven in a row. We don't over-think it, that's for sure.

“We have to hope for that little bit of luck at some stage and the dressing room have to find that mentality of getting back to winning ways on the road. This level it doesn't just happen, you have to make it happen.

“We have had a great recent five games with 10 points, but [Saturday] is a step backwards. We won't dwell on it. It's up to me to reflect on it, analysis it and make us better.”
