Neil Harris has defended his record, but says he expects to be challenged when his Championship side Millwall fails to perform.
And ahead of a game against the Tigers this weekend, Harris says he understands the pressure that comes with being manager, and says he expects both he and his players to be challenged when results are not going well.
But Harris has defended his record and insists that his players have to be at their best each week to get results in the second tier of English football.
“Will people challenge me and my players because we have not performed? Yes, too right,” he said following the draw at Ashton Gate.
“I wouldn’t expect anything different. My record speaks for itself, over a period of time, certainly the second half of last season. And I think you saw the performance [at Bristol City] that we are a very tight-knit group”.
“What’s clear and I have put on record many times, if individually, we don’t play to our best, we don’t match teams at this level and that’s just the reality, because other teams have got good players.
“I feel I have got good players, but I feel we have to be at our best to match teams and a player like Shaun Hutchinson was at his very best and that’s the standard I expect.”
Millwall host Hull City at The Den on Saturday, a fixture that will be repeated next month after the two teams were drawn together in the FA Cup third round draw.
