Neil Harris says his side only lost because of a “wonder goal” today after their 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

Millwall would face an uphill battle after midfielder Diogo Jota shot from outside the box to send Nuno Espírito’s men into the lead after ten minutes.

Winger Aiden O’Brien was booked after a late challenge in the 54th minute before going off after a second yellow, reducing the Lions to ten men.

Millwall now move into 19th with one win in their opening six games in the Sky Bet Championship.

Harris said: “Individually and collectively we lacked a little bit of quality to stay on the ball, and I think that’s probably the first time I’ve said that as a manager this year.

“So that’s something for us to focus on going into Tuesday [against Queens Park Rangers].

“It’s a tough place to come, they’ve [Wolves] got a good side. Make no bones in that, they’ll be right up there at the end of the season and if anyone finishes above them then they get promoted this year.

“We can take a lot from today, a lot of credit from today, and certainly a lot to learn. The biggest one for me, for me and my players, is that we need to come and compose ourselves from moment one.”

Defender Byron Webster was caught out after attempting to stop Wolves on the half-way line, leaving Shaun Hutchinson and James Meredith to defend the ensuing attack.

In the end the 20-year-old let fly from some 25 yards out to beat goalkeeper Jordan Archer for his second goal of the season.

Harris added: “It wasn’t bad, was it? It was a great strike. We make slight errors of judgment, slight mistimed challenges in the middle of the park at this level and the ball ends up in the roof of the net from 25 or 30 yards.

“We found ourselves in probably slightly better positions a couple of times and didn’t hit the target, with Steve in the first half and Jed in the second half.

“Can we find the ability to do that? We will do, we have done in the past but he’s a super player and that was a great strike and deserving to win the game.

"At the end of the day whatever happens, with 11 men or ten men, whether Wolves were the better team – which they were for long periods – we’ve only been beaten by a wonder goal from 30 yards."

Millwall travel to Loftus Road for their game against Queens Park Rangers next Tuesday.
