Neil Harris says he wants West Ham in the fourth-round of the FA Cup after his side thrashed Barnsley at The Den to ensure their place in Monday’s draw.

Goals from Aiden O’Brien, Ben Thompson and Fred Onyedinma booked Millwall’s place in the Last 32 after they had fallen behind to Brad Pott’s early strike.

The Lions have now won their last six FA Cup at The Den and Harris says he would like anyone at home, but West Ham would be his preferred choice.

Harris said: “I was delighted we were at home today, I didn't fancy Barnsley away. In the next round I want to be at home, I want a big game at The Den.

“I'd like to have a crack at more of the big sides. I'd like to play Premier League opposition but if I had to pick one team I'd love it to be West Ham.”

West Ham travel to Shrewsbury Town tomorrow afternoon and if the two London rivals do draw each other, it will be the first cup meeting between the sides since August 2009, when The Lions lost 3-1 at Upton Park. Harris scored Millwall’s goal that day.

Harris’ men had to recover from an early setback to book their place in the next round and he was delighted with the players that came into the side after making six changes.

He said: “I thought we started the game really well. We were excellent for ten minutes, should have gone in front, didn’t and conceded a sucker-punch of a goal.”

“And it took us ten minutes to find our feet again. 20 minutes before half-time, 20 minutes after half-time, I thought we were outstanding, as good as we’ve been this year. Some of our pay was very impressive. We passed the ball well, we looked a goal-threat for long periods.”

Ben Thompson capped his first start since August with a fine goal to make it 2-1 and five minutes after Aiden O’Brien added a second, Fred Onyedinma made up for his earlier missed chanced, by curling home his first goal of the season.

Tony Craig also returned and captained the side and despite a nervy opening 20-minutes, he grew into the game and made a fine tackle in the build-up for Millwall’s first goal, setting Jed Wallace away, who crossed for O’Brien to slot home.

Harris continued: “I am delighted with the players that took their opportunities to come into the team today and show their quality. I think all of the players, Tony [Craig], Ben [Thompson], Fred [Onyedinma], took their opportunity. I obviously played a very strong side, made a couple of changes, to A, give people match minutes and B, to rest players that have played a lot of football.

“When you do that, sometimes you lose a little bit of continuity in the performances, especially here at The Den. We didn’t show that at all today. We looked a quality side.”
