Millwall manager Neil Harris says he was pleased with to come away with a point against a ‘top’ Wolves side. 

Jake Cooper headed home with 18 minutes remaining to earn the Lions a point after Diogo Jota and Romain Saiss netted either side of half-time to turn the game Wolves’ way.

Lee Gregory had swept home on 13 minutes after a flowing counter-attack to put Millwall into an early lead.

Both sides had chances to win the game, but both were unable to find a breakthrough and had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Barry Douglas went closest with the last kick of the game, but Jordan Archer palmed away his well-struck free-kick. 

Harris said: “I am really pleased with a point. No one was short-changed today in the crowd. They have paid to come and watch that, I thought it was an excellent game of football. It was end-to0end, and in some ways, David Livermore summed it up and said, 'That’s a Millwall performance'.

“We had to be patient at times, we had to compete against a top Wolves side. There is no getting away from it, they are a top side. We created numerous chances ourselves, so really pleased.” 

The visitors came into the game on the back off eight Championship wins in their last nine games and conceded as many goals at the Den as they had done in their previous nine matches.

Millwall lost 1-0 at Molineux in September, courtesy of Jota’s first-half strike and the Lions boss was delighted at how his side used the ball compared to when the sides met earlier in the season. 

He added: “I thought when we played up there earlier in the season, we were really organised, really good shape, limited them to very few chances, but weren’t good with the ball at times and I said today we had to be brave, we had to use it wisely. It’s the three or four chances we created. 

“Jake Cooper should have scored two more with his head. Aiden O’Brien should score a tap-in at the back-post, Lee Gregory had a chance, one-on-one, which probably evens out the boy [Helder] Costa’s effort because he was through as well.

"I thought we had the best chances and limited their chances to shots outside the box.”
