HARRIS TAMES LIONS FEARS AS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Paul Green

MILL­WALL man­ager Neil Harris ad­mit­ted he was re­lieved af­ter his side fi­nally ended their Den hoodoo with vic­tory over Rochdale.

The Lions went into this game hav­ing suf­fered four straight League One defeats in front of their own fol­low­ers.

But they went home happy thanks to goals from Jimmy Ab­dou, Shaun Wil­liams and Steve Mori­son – de­spite an in­evitable scare cour­tesy of Peter Vin­centi’s late first-half equaliser – to take the pres- sure off a de­lighted man­ager in Harris.

He said: “It is a weight off my mind be­cause we are a long way into Septem­ber and the first home win has not come.

“What has been bizarre is as much as we want to win here it has been dif­fi­cult, not just for me, my staff and the squad but for the fans. I un­der­stand that be­cause I’ve got friends who are Mill­wall fans.
