Millwall boss Harris on away form ahead of testing trip to Norwich City

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Neil Harris says Millwall’s lowly points return on the road is not something that consumes him ahead of Saturday’s trip to second-placed Norwich City.

Last weekend’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford means that the Lions have taken just two points – draws at Blackburn and Forest – on their travels.

“To be honest it doesn’t play on my mind,” Harris told the South London Press. “All that plays on my mind is I want us to be successful. We want to win games and we have an amount of games we think we need to win to get to 50 points this season.

“Winning some games on the road is paramount to that. But I don’t overthink things.

“The key is we have to find a way to start winning games on the road, whether that is picking the right players or the right mentality then so be it.

“A lot of thought processes go into it and a lot of hard work. But ultimately it [an away win] will happen. Last year we had to wait until January. I certainly don’t want to wait that long.

“But it’s not something to overthink and be fearful of. It is a challenge to win games and take points.”
