Millwall manager Neil Harris has warned Sheffield United that the club’s fans will not be turned against the team, despite their recent form, report the Sheffield Star.
Chris Wilder’s side travel to the Den having experienced a much more successful start to the season than their London opponents with the Blades currently sat in fourth and the Lions in 22nd.
“I never take it for granted at our football club, how good they are,” Harris said of the club’s fans after their weekend defeat to West Brom.
“But they drove the team on, supported the team and appreciated at the end when everyone of them stayed.
“I hope they see enough in the group and I mean themselves, the board, the players that we have had a great three-and-a-half years.”
Millwall have won just once this season and have not claimed all three points since the third day of the season with a 2-1 win against Derby County.
Since then they have lost five and drawn one of their six matches and sit above just Reading and Preston North End in the Championship table.
Sheffield United, on the other hand, have had a great start to the season and sit in fourth place having won five times this season and drawn once.
I do not think that anybody had seriously began to consider Millwall’s fans turning on the team.
They will be well aware how much they overachieved last season so should not be surprised to be fighting towards the bottom of the league.
That said, they should definitely expect better than what they that seen in recent weeks and Harris will know that more than anyone.
