Neil Harris is looking for a consistent 90-minute performance from his Millwall side – feeling there were positives and negatives from Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Huddersfield Town.
The Lions are back in action tonight at Luton Town.
The South Londoners have not won since August 17.
Millwall fought back last weekend to take a point. Matt Smith’s goal brought them back level after Fraizer Campbell had slotted the Terriers in front.
Shane Ferguson was sent off for two bookable offences in the closing stages.
“I would strive for more consistent levels over the course of 90 minutes,” said Harris. “In the first half we were dominating, barring a five minute spell where Huddersfield scored against the run of play.
“I thought we could’ve done better with the goal we conceded and we lost our way for five minutes. We were a little bit shell shocked but we regrouped and got back into it with a deserved equaliser, albeit a little bit of a mistake [by the Huddersfield goalkeeper who spilled a corner].
“We should be leading before the break.
“You want consistent levels but we couldn’t reach those levels in the second half. Huddersfield were a bit better – we were poor with the ball in the second half, we gave it away too cheaply.
“I spoke afterwards about taking care of the football to build chances. We finished the game with 10 men for the last 15 minutes. It is a positive we have to build on.”
