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.”

Millwall manager Neil Harris has said that his team must improve their performances on the road if they are to remain in the Championship beyond the current campaign.

Speaking after the club’s 2-0 home defeat to Birmingham City, Harris acknowledged that the team are putting more pressure of them on winning games at the Den, given they have barely impressed on their travels this term. He added that the Lions must start winning games on the road to enhance their prospects of beating the drop.

Millwall’s summer signing Tom Bradshaw has revealed that he is hungry to find the scoresheet for the Lions having failed to do so during his opening five appearances for the club. The 26-year-old joined the south London outfit on a short-term loan until January where the club have the obligation to buy him on a permanent basis.
Speaking in a press conference, Bradshaw said: “It’s gone really well so far, as well as I had expected after speaking to the gaffer. I’ve got used to the surrounding area, which I knew quite well anyway from coming down to see my girlfriend, and I’ve really enjoyed my first few weeks. Training has been intense and I’ve really enjoyed it. I think I’ve managed to get into my head what the gaffer wants from me and understanding the way Millwall play, and I’ve enjoyed getting some game time. Hopefully I can get my first goal soon.”
