Millwall boss gives his verdict on Fulham fixture – and reckons it will be a “travesty” if west London side do not finish in top two


Millwall manager Neil Harris feels all the pressure is on Fulham ahead of this Wednesday’s derby at Craven Cottage.

The Lions are still undefeated this season and picked up their second Championship victory with a 1-0 success over Sheffield Wednesday today – despite playing more than 50 minutes down to 10 men.

Jed Wallace is set to be suspended after his red card against the Owls, unless Millwall appeal the dismissal.

Harris watched Fulham’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town on Friday night.

“Fulham are a top side,” he said. “I watched them last night and if you look at their team on paper – and bench – they are the best team in the league.

“If they don’t get top two it will be a travesty. We’ll be the underdog, not fancied – people will be writing us off.

“We’ll got and put in the best performance we can, try to perform on the night and hopefully get a little bit of Lady Luck.

“We’ll go and enjoy it. We’ve sold our allocation out – so the atmosphere on Wednesday will be like today, Preston and West Brom.”

    The game against Wednesday was poor – but the reult was great – but we are not playing well – so dont try and kid yourself we are.
    The midfield is not right – Williams is a waste of time. Romeo also not quite up to par.
    Wednesday are a very good side – so yes it was a great result and for 10 men. I sometimes think team selection leaves a bit to be desired.
    Leonard would have been better starting than Williams – he needs a rest – about 6 months!!

    Fulham lack a striker which can actually be score. They bring the ball up easily but seem to always fizzle out where it counts.

    FULHAM fans will love the compliment but it is far too early to judge this side after only two wins in the first three games.
    The preseason matches didn’t augur well and the awful debacle in the premiership under three managers including the current should make the fans cautious .
    A win against Millwall might be the start of a good run but far too early to predict a top two finish !
