Neil Harris was unhappy with Millwall’s attacking display in their goalless draw with Preston on Saturday.

The Lions managed just one shot on target in a content where Preston wasted glorious chances.

And despite their lack of creativity going forward, Harris praised his defenders, who helped extend Millwall’s unbeaten run to three games.

He said: “I was a bit disappointed with our attacking play.

"We got into some good areas, but couldn't use the ball wisely enough. But, defensively, we stood strong and got something out of the game.

“We came up against a Preston side that had been scoring goals for fun. They've got a boy up front [Jordan Hugill] who is being looked at for his performances, but my defence dealt with him well.

“We nullified the threat and the defence were ably supported by the rest of the team.

“I was pleased with all the young men and the performance. This is not an easy place to come.

“If you haven't got the quality on the day to win the game, then your defence comes into play - they did well.”
