Millwall 'vibrant' ahead of Leeds clash as boss says: 'Our fans love going to Elland Road'

MILLWALL face a daunting trip to Leeds on Saturday but Lions boss Neil Harris stressed: “We’re going there to win.”

Harris stressed Lions players have been in “vibrant” mood in training over the international break after their league win at Birmingham and then pushing Brighton all the way in their FA Cup quarter-final

Harris is looking forward to seeing his players tested in front of a full house at Elland Road.



“The lads have been vibrant the last ten days because of the performance at Birmingham and they carried it into Brighton when we were so much better than a Premier League side but didn’t get over the line,” Harris said.

“For 93 minutes we probably dominated Brighton, and the boys will remember that rather than focusing on a penalty shootout or a lapse in concentration, which was all that cost us a place in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

“The boys are great, they look hungry and sharp and you certainly wouldn’t think the end of the season was nigh-on upon us. They’re in great nick.



“It’s a good one to look forward to because sometimes you have a couple of weeks off and then don’t know what to expect. But we know what to expect from Leeds, they’re as fit as anyone in the division and play with a real tempo with and without the ball.

“We have to be ready and the players will be ready. We’ve trained to be ready for it.

“What a great challenge, 35-40,00 at Elland Road. Our fans love going there and the atmosphere will be electric. We’re going there to win the game and that’s the clear message to the group. We’re going into these remaining games to get results.”
