Neil Harris knows tonight’s match at QPR will be a tough test for his Lions but won’t be overawed by the occasion.

Following four successive defeats Steve McClarens men haven’t lost in their last three outings and Harris believes they are now showing signs of the team they once were.

“They’ve certainly been an improved side over the last few games compared to how they started the season,” Harris said.

“They’ve got the consistency back in their performances and they’ve picked some points up, so we know, as ever, it will be a tough game.

“They have some quality individual players in attacking areas, but we also know we’re capable of beating anybody on our day.”

Tonight’s game at Loftus Road starts the first of six matches in 17 days for the Lions but Harris wouldn’t have it any other way, although he knows the depth of his squad will be tested.

“Playing QPR under the lights at Loftus Road in a London derby with a sold-out away allocation will be a great atmosphere, and then we go to West Brom, who are a big club with great players. It doesn’t get better than that.

“We’ll be utilising our squad over a period, changes are possible in the short-term which I’ll look at closer to kick-off. But we had a really good performance at the weekend which you don’t always want to change too much from.

Millwall go in to tonight’s game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Championship pacesetters Leeds at the weekend, and Harris is urging his team to take that performance in to the QPR match.

“It was definitely (a good point against Leeds).

“It was a really good performance, and a game we should clearly have won – even when it got back to 1-1, we should have got ourselves a winner in injury time.”

“The pleasing aspect is that the group mentality is back, it has been brilliant at the training ground, and we look forward now to the QPR game.”

QPR currently sit 19th in the league, a point and a place above Harris’ men.
