Millwall boss Neil Harris has said that the team’s downfall in the closing stages of matches have nothing to do with fitness concerns. The south London side recently shipped their 17th goal after the 80th minute of Championship games and that cost them a point during a hard-fought encounter against Leeds United.
Speaking after the 2-1 defeat, Harris indicated that fatigue should not hamper the performances towards the end, but one can attribute the mental strength towards the outcome, he said: “It certainly shouldn’t be fatigue but whether it’s tired minds, that’s different. It won’t be tired legs, sports science plays a huge part at our football club as it does across world football these days. “We know where the players are at stats-wise, minutes-wise, training-wise. It’s not fatigue in the legs. How do you define human error in any industry? We gave a poor second goal away, even if you have to give credit to Leeds and the way they play.”
