Millwall produced one of their best performances of the season in their 2-0 win over West Brom according to their manager.

Neil Harris lauded his side after Ryan Tunnicliffe effort and Ahmed Hegazi’s own goal gave the Lions a crucial three points in their fight for survival.

West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez missed a penalty on the hour but Harris feels anything other than a win would’ve been unjust as his side stay above the releagtion zone by a point and two places.

‘That was Millwall wasn’t it?’ Harris was asked.

“Yes, that’s four games we’ve done that,” the manager replied.

“Birmingham away, Everton in the cup which you’re all aware of, and Leeds last week where we were very very good, just Leeds were better than us.

“Today we dominated large parts of the game, hugely deserved the win, a little fortune along the way which is needed at the business end of the season.

“But it would’ve been a travesty if we didn’t win the game.”

Harris admitted his side may have got lucky in not conceding with the Baggies missing from 12-yards, but it was no more than his side earned in a performance that made a mockery of their league position and the pressure they were under in the relegation dogfight.

“They’ve won ten out of 12 away from home so we knew they’d be a threat, so to limit them to the few chances they had was pleasing.

“We are still tagged as a long-ball team with everyone but today we showed some real composure, quality, and some of the moves leading up to chances were outstanding.

“People think we’re mad because of where we are and the pressure we are under.

“It’s my job to release that fear from them and get them to play without that fear, play with spirit togetherness and quality, like they did today.”

Focussed on Priority

Harris’ attention now turns to the next game, a London derby against QPR, and in a backdrop of player contracts expiring in the summer the manager assured fans that nothing will get in the way of the Club’s aim in the remaining six games.

“We are in a good place and understanding that all that matters is that the club get enough points to stay in the division.

“We’re not here to talk about contracts, we are focussed on the end of the season.

“We’ve got players who are out of contract, like most teams, that will need sorting, but players understand the priority is getting points.”

Millwall sit 20th, on 40 points joint with Reading, two places and one point above the relegation zone.
