OPPOSITION VIEW: NEIL HARRIS

23 February 2018

MILLWALL boss Neil Harris has stoked the fires ahead of Burton Albion's Championship clash with the Lions.

When the Brewers travelled to The Dan in November, they defeated Harris’ side 1-0 through a second-half Marvin Sordell strike. Millwall were reduced to ten-men when Jed Wallace was dismissed for a bad tackle on Tom Flanagan, which left the Burton defender injured.

In his pre-match press conference, Harris said that he felt a sense of injustice in that defeat and hopes that his team can put it right against a Burton side who are unbeaten in three games.

He said: “We have left so many points on the pitch, teams have beat us that never deserved to beat us.

“It’s all about Burton on Saturday. I told my players to forget Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday. Burton came here earlier in the season and absolutely robbed us. The ref conned us for the decision to lose Jed. They had one shot and scored.

“What we have done now, 33 games in, is show ourselves to be competitive at this level and shown ourselves to be as good a squad as a lot of expensively assembled squads.

“We are above Sheffield Wednesday, despite their injuries, and Leeds and Norwich, for 24 hours at least. Sunderland, Hull and Reading are massive clubs. Sometimes you are only a big club by name and by budgets – not by squads.”
