“It’ll be a travesty if Fulham don’t finish top two.”

Those were the words of Millwall manager Neil Harris before his side’s 4-0 demolition at Craven Cottage.

Following the tie, where the Lions gameplan to stifle Scott Parker’s outfit went out the window after Ivan Cavaleiro’s 15th minute opener, Harris heaped further praise on his opposition as he could do nothing but hold his hands up the better team won.

A Cavaleiro brace, book-ending an Anthony Knockhaert header and an Aleksander Mitrovic penalty, gave a dominant west London outfit a deserved three points.

“Is that all?!” joked Harris on learning his side had an OPTA low 15% possession statistic.

“They caused us the most problems as a team, other than Tottenham in FA Cup (a 6-0 defeat in 2017) than I’ve faced in my time in charge.

“Firstly I want to congratulate Fulham, I thought they were magnificent, certainly the best I’ve seen since Wolves won the league with 100 points a few years ago.

“I think Fulham fans will think ‘what are they doing in this division, they should be in the Premiership.”

Despite the one-sided scoreline and the Fulham-favouring stat-board, Harris felt his side could’ve prevented the second half goals, but equally couldn’t criticise his men.

“As good as they were, I think we gave them a leg up.

“When they cut through us, I’ve no problem with hat, but the last two really hurt me because we gave the ball back to them cheaply, and got punished.

“Previous games we weren’t punished, That’s the quality and level of Fulham.

“I won’t judge them on this performance against a top Fulham side, because a lot of teams will come here and get beat like we did.”
