Millwall boss Neil Harris has labelled Adama Traore “the quickest player in the league by a mile” ahead of Saturday evening’s clash of the Championship play-off hopefuls.
The Lions are unbeaten in nine matches on the road and need a victory on Teesside this weekend to boost their top-six hopes. Derby County’s 3-1 victory over Cardiff City in midweek saw them jump above the South London club and take the final play-off spot.
Traore has been in fine form for Boro and Harris said: “They have got some real threats and Traore is certainly one of them.
“He looks like the quickest player in the league by a mile. He looks a real handful. They are a big side, very dangerous at set-plays – we have got to make sure we compete physically and try to nullify their threats while having a gameplan of our own.
“It is a cracking game and I expect the atmosphere to be great. Our travelling fans have been brilliant on the road this season.”
