Inconsistency is what annoys Millwall manager Neil Harris about his side’s latest defeat on the road.

Having won their last three home games, they’ve picking up just two points on their travels from a possibly 24 this season and Harris said it’s not good enough.

After their 2-0 defeat at Brentford Harris said: “What we can’t do is we can’t go from up there [the performance level], to down there.

“It’s hard to talk about positives when we’ve been so poor with the ball today.”

After 45 minutes of very few chances, Brentford scored through Sergi Canos shortly after the break and then Ollie Watkins sealed the tie late on as the game opened up. In truth though, the hosts were good value for the points as Harris’s men failed to create much in attack.

“As much as I’m frustrated with the performance, result and our away form, we showed in the first half we can dig in and grind, not be at our best but be strong and limit the opponent.

“Four minutes into the second half, we’ve had the ball in their final third for three and a half minutes and then we are 1-0 down. That’s not acceptable. We have to find a way from to be better away from home, not just for 45 minutes, for the full 90.”

Harris was unhappy with his side’s performance in possession of the ball and knows an improvement will be required for next week’s trip to Norwich.

“Today we didn’t find that momentum, didn’t build enough pressure. We didn’t make good decisions with the football.

“Sometimes we need to make four or five passes with the ball before playing it forward.

“We played too much one-touch football today. I’m disappointed.”

Millwall now sit 19th in the Championship one point above the relegation zone.
