Neil Harris could see positives in his Millwall team despite Saturday’s 2-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.
Tony Mowbray’s side handed Millwall their second Championship defeat of the season, meaning they are without a win since beating Sheffield Wednesday on August 17.
“I want to get points,” said Harris. “Coming to Blackburn to lose 2-0 is disappointing, but we’re playing a very good team.
“If you read the manager’s programme notes, he’s talking about a top-six side. We are a new group developing and we’ve had a real strong start, obviously performances need to keep on improving but we are playing at a good level.
“I see a lot of positives in my team, but there are some players still finding their feet and it takes time.
“It’s a tough league and we will keep trying to improve our players.”
One of those new players is goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski and the on-loan Ipswich Town goalkeeper made a number of important saves to deny Blackburn.
“He’s a good goalkeeper, that’s why I was desperate to sign him all summer,” said Harris. “He was a little bit too busy for my liking in the second half – but goalkeepers are paid to make saves and he made some good saves.”
Millwall face QPR at The Den on Saturday.
The Lions are unbeaten at home – winning two and drawing one of their three games.
Harris said: “QPR at The Den is usually a very good atmosphere.
“We’ve done well at The Den. We’ve got seven points but should have nine, so we look forward to that.”
