Millwall's Neil Harris suggested his side's results are defined by fine margins after their narrow 1-0 win over Nottingham Forrest at The Den.

Millwall dominated proceedings for the vast majority of the game, with them finally opening the scoring through an acrobatic effort from Ryan Tunnicliffe in the ninth minute.

The Lions nearly doubled their lead in the 88th minute when Steve Morison struck the post from six-yards out after some good play from Aiden O’Brien down the left hand side.

“We could have made it a little more comfortable for ourselves couldn’t we?!" said Harris.

"Certainly with the second goal with Stevie hitting the post.

“I knew it was going to be a close game. Two different styles of play, Forrest want to pass, pass, pass, where we want to get the ball forward a little bit quicker. I thought certainty for the first 35-40 minutes we completely dominated and were excellent.

“We pressed the ball and forced mistake after mistake. If we just used the ball slightly better on the counter attack and had more end product. But with the same as Boxing Day, the goal was worthy of winning any game.

Tunnicliffe’s goal was a superb effort. In a crowded area, the ex-Fulham midfielder found space to connect with a looping ball with an over-head kick, which to his fortune hit the inside of the post and then the back of the net.

“It was a great goal from Tunni. I won’t lie, he does not score many in training either.” Harris joked about the midfielder’s goal.

Forest’s closest chance when Jack Colback was found unmarked at the back post and tried to replicate Tunnicliffe’s athleticism by attempting a scissor kick of his own, which was eventually collected by Jordan Archer.

“They are the fine margins. You look at Colback’s chance in the second half, where he does almost a scissor kick as well and it goes straight at Jordan. If that goes in the corner, then it is a different game.

“I said to the players again, we could have been slightly better in the last twenty minutes or second half really with the football to make life easier. But where we are at the moment, six-points in four days for us is a great turn around.

Millwall have now won straight back to back victories since October after they ended their nine game winless run against Reading on 1-0 on Boxing Day, which seems to have lifted pressure off Neil Harris’ men.

“It did not take the shackles off but it allowed everyone just to relax a little bit and gave them confidence and belief that we took into today’s game. I thought we was excellent today for long periods.

Lee Gregory came off on the 58th minute after receiving some attention on the field. Harris explained it is a problem that will need accessing in a few days to see how it develops.

“Lee has a calf problem. We will have to see and scan him to see how he is in the next 48-hours.
