Millwall boss accepted FA charge: I made an error going into Middlesbrough’s technical area


Neil Harris has accepted his FA misconduct charge but has not been hit with a touchline ban.

The Millwall boss was sent off in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough after an altercation with rival first-team coach Leo Percovich.

Harris, who watched the remainder of the game from one of the stands at The Riverside, had until Friday to contest the charge.

But the Lions chief told the South London Press yesterday: “I have accepted the charge. I made an error going into Middlesbrough’s technical area.

“So I have accepted the penalty and a fine. I feel the charge has been dealt with in a sensible manner and I will learn from that.

“I’m looking forward to taking the team on Saturday.”
