Neil Harris has praised his players' attitude after coming back from a goal down to beat Reading 2-1.

The Lions secured a late win after George Saville scored twice to clinch all three points.

Wales international David Edwards gave the Royals the lead on 73 minutes, but the home side’s response forced them to push for a late equaliser that never came.

Harris said: "I didn’t see Reading scoring, I’ve got to be honest. So it was majorly disappointing when the goal [by David Edwards] went in. It was a poor goal for us to give away from a corner.

“I thought our discipline, our organisation [and] our shape was magnificent tonight, our patience, and just when you’re thinking, ‘Where are we going to get more quality on the football?’ and maybe hurt them in the penalty area, we concede a poor goal.

“I’ve got to say that the goals were good by George [Saville]. You can talk about character, desire and spirit in the camp, and those are the obvious lines, but I think the belief [in our team] is the key one.

“At this level against good sides, to come from a goal down is a big ask and I give full praise to my group for that and they’ve built that belief over the last six weeks with their performances.”

Millwall are now four games unbeaten in the league, with victory against Leeds United last weekend, but the manager is not convinced his team have fully acclimatised yet.

After an inauspicious start which began with a defeat away to Nottingham Forest, the Lions flirted with relegation for a while but now they are seven points clear.

Harris added: “I think we’re still in that transition period, for me. Barnsley [at home] is a big game at the weekend and it’s game both myself and Paul [Heckingbottom, Barnsley manager] both look at and see where the chances for points are there against each other. That’ll be a real test for us.

“But beating Norwich [City], beating Leeds [United] here, beating Reading tonight, three big teams at this level shows that so far we well and truly deserve to be at this level.

“There are various hurdles for us to get over. Barnsley is a big game, and I’ve said to my group already that they’re brilliant to have come back tonight but Barnsley is a massive game going into the international break.

“I think we can take stock and look at ourselves after that game, see that result and say, ‘Right, how well have we done?’

“But I will certainly praise my players for what they’ve achieved in the first ten games of the season."
