Millwall’s Harris: ‘Fulham best in league – but we’ve sold out allocation and will enjoy it’

NEIL Harris believes Fulham have the best squad in the league – but said his side will enjoy their trip to Craven Cottage on Wednesday in front of a sold-out away end.

Millwall are still unbeaten in the Championship after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at The Den left them on seven points from three games.

Scott Parker’s Cottagers are a point behind after Friday’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield.

“If you look back two weeks you wouldn’t have thought Millwall-Fulham was a big game,” Harris said. “I don’t look at it that it’s a really big game for anything other than it’s a London derby and it’s our next game.

“Fulham are a top side, I watched them last night. You look at their team on paper, the players they’ve got on the bench – it’s the best in the league.

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

“All we can do is go and enjoy ourselves, put in the best performance we can, try and play well on the night, hopefully get a bit of lady luck. It’s a great game, we’ve sold our allocation out so the atmosphere will be like it was today, like it was against Preston and like it was against West Brom last week.

“The fans are enjoying watching their team at the moment and it’s my job to make sure the connection is there between the fans and the pitch – and it certainly is.”
