Millwall manager Neil Harris has dismissed any suggestion his side have one eye on their impending FA Cup quarter-final.
The Lions face a hugely significant trip to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
Millwall’s 3-1 loss to Norwich City yesterday saw their gap over the Championship bottom three cut to just one point.
Asked if that trip to Wanderers was bigger than their last-eight meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup, Harris replied: “Oh, far bigger. We’re not going to win the FA Cup. It’s a great day out, the quarter-final against Brighton – everyone will really enjoy the occasion and we’ll give it a right go when we get to it.
“But if I thought any of my players were thinking about that, I wouldn’t let them in the building.
“We’re fully focused on the league. The league is the priority – staying in the Championship and amassing points as quickly as possible is the mindset of the players.
“I know that’s the mindset of the players – there is no focus on the FA Cup.”
