Neil Harris expects a hostile Den to motivate his players to put in a performance the fans can be proud of on Saturday against Everton.

The Den is on course to be a sell-out on Saturday afternoon despite the fixture being broadcasted live on TV.

“The great occasions at The Den bring the best out of our football club” said Harris.

“The fans will have a good build-up to the game, and be excited, and they'll come and make a great atmosphere within the stadium and the players will feed off that.

“When The Den comes together in unison like that, on and off the pitch, it's a very intimidating place to play. Whatever experience you've got, however good a player you are, it's very, very difficult to play in that atmosphere.

“At The Den, under the lights, a full house against a team that someone wrote was worth £220million at the weekend when they got beat by Southampton. That's what it's all about for us.”

Under Neil Harris, Millwall are unbeaten against Premier League sides at The Den after they beat of Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester during the 2016/17 campaign. Harris explained that he is eager to add a fourth to his collection of Premier League scalps.

“We know Everton have a world-class team with world-class players – a good squad, have a lot of money – if they're at their best it's a difficult afternoon for us. That's the beauty of the FA Cup.

“We'll certainly be going to win the game with our strongest possible team, and I want to give the fans an occasion to be proud of their team.”
