Neil Harris admitted that Fred Onyedinma’s penalty miss was a turning point in Millwall’s EFL Trophy defeat to Wycombe Wanderers – but felt that was the only fault in his display.

The Lions striker stepped up himself after being fouled inside the area but his effort was saved.

“Fred was outstanding tonight,” said boss Harris. “It’s a shame he was the one who missed the penalty. It certainly swung the game. If it goes in we are in a good position and have got the ascendancy. We were well on top and probably kick on from there.

“We gave a poor second goal away and definitely should have cleared our lines for the third, we got caught him up the pitch and done in behind.

“No complaints. It was a competitive game but not with any real quality. It’s disappointing in some aspects – I hate getting beaten at The Den. Our focus is now on Shrewsbury.

“I picked a team that was capable of beating Wycombe and not letting two goals in during the last four minutes.”

  1. Let down by schoolboy defending again, Bomber really needs to sort it out or we are going to be seriously embarrassed , when we play Bournemouth , seems like nearly every shot on target the opposition has ends up in the back of the net .
