Millwall lacked a 'winning mentality' in their Carabao Cup defeat at Oxford but there were plenty of postives according to Neil Harris. 

The Lions were two goals up after Jon Dadi Bodvarsson strikes either side of the break, but a Mark Sykes effort in the 87th minute and an injury time James Henry penalty forced a shootout which the U's went on to win 4-2.

Harris' side who've enjoyed a postive start to the Championship, came into the fixture buoyed by a battling 1-1 raw at Midlesbrough at the weekend despite fielding a number of fringe players on Tuesday night.

In his second competetive start for the Lions the Icelandic international Bodvarsson got his first goals for the club, and the summer recruit from Reading was a major postive for Harris despite the defeat.

"I'm pleased for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson,"  he said. 

"He has come in behind everyone else and has had to play catch-up.

"He has looked sharp in training the last seven to 10 days and he showed that with his finishing tonight."

 "I'm gutted that we lost the game because our performance didn't deserve that.

"We scored two, and it could have been four or six.

"It was a real dominant display by us.

"A deflected goal and a soft penalty cost us.

"It was an outstanding performance, with some strong individual performances but there was not that winning mentality."
