Championship: In-form Hull host fellow promotion hopefuls West Brom - 1 minute read

New Millwall boss Neil Harris guided the Lions to their first victory in nine matches.

The 46-year-old said his players delivered the gameplan.

“I certainly can’t say we battered them from start to finish. I would say that is a very Millwall-like performance against a top, top side at this level with unbelievable individual ability," he told BBC Radio London.

“Credit to my players for delivering the gameplan, credit to the fans for getting behind us from the start and carrying us through the second half.

“We’d like to have a bit more of the ball, we’d like to be a bit higher up the pitch and have more efforts on goal but you have to pay so much respect to teams like this. We had to do what we had to do get a result. I asked the players to buy-in. Fair play to the group.

“I left Cambridge with a heavy heart after a short tenure but that’s why I have come back today – it’s the only club I would have left to go to. It’s a positive start but it’s only a start.”
