Millwall's point from their 1-1 draw at West Brom was a 'real positive' for the new-look Lions says Neil Harris.

Matt Smith scored a 75th minute goal to cancel out Kyle Bartley’s opener to ensure that Millwall build on last week’s 1-0 victory against Preston.

“It’s another real positive for the group.” Harris said.

“We showed the character, the belief and the confidence to come back after conceding a really disappointing goal, and at a place like this to then go on and look so threatening with the changes.

“It’s a great position to be in to be able to make the subs that I have in the last two games, it shows where we’re at.

West Brom unexpectedly controlled the game, but Harris deployed the Lions in a defensive shape which quelled the pressure leaped on by the Baggies.

“To limit West Brom to what attacking threat they had, they’d all the ball but didn’t get near our penalty area for long periods. I was delighted with the shape of the team and we deserved a point.

“I am going to pick teams that I think suit the opposition home and away and who suits us as a group, who trains well and who deserves to play. We thought today that we could really hurt West Brom with a defensive shape and the counter attack to get the ball down the sides of them.

“There is different ways of doing it and we did it excellently in the first 27 minutes where we caused no ends of problems with Ryan and Leonard and Ben Thompson and with Tom Bradshaw running forward.

“I saw West Brom’s quality last week against Nottingham Forrest and they have got some really good players and a really good team. I thought it was really key today to be defensively sound to get a foothold in the game.

“I thought in the last half hour that we might need the changes and the game might open up a little bit. So the game went the way we expected, but I did not expect to concede a goal like we did though.

“The disappointment was conceding the goal the way we did was poor, we should do better from that set-play. The other opportunity for them came from us giving the ball away on the edge of our own box.”

The only negative Millwall took away from the game is that Mahlon Romeo had to be replaced due to an injury, but despite being unsure on the full-backs injury, he brushed away any assumptions it could be long term.

“I’m not exactly sure. I think he might have got a poke in the eye or a bang on the head. I was too wrapped up in the game to take much notice.”
