Millwall boss Neil Harris said he was pleased by his side’s performance during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium.
Mark Beevers scored the only goal of the game as the Lions dominated the game against the League Two outfit on July 25.
“First of all it was great to go out there and get a win,” Harris told the club’s official website . “We have worked exceptionally hard all pre-season, as have all teams, but we have really pushed the boys.
“We have really sharpened up in training and I think we saw that out on the pitch.
“Our movement from the two wide men and the two strikers was outstanding. John Marquis and Lee Gregory looked a real pair up front for us.
“If I was being critical then I’d say on another day we might have scored a fair few more.
“But there was some clear progression. We looked very bright and got plenty of bodies in the box.”
Beevers bundled in from close range from a set piece, but Harris is keen for his team to improve that side of their game.
“We need to be doing better from set-pieces,” he said.
“There haven’t been enough goals from corners and free-kicks. The delivery needs to be good but the hunger to win the ball is key.”
After the match Harris reiterated his desire to add to his squad but insisted any new arrival had to be the right fit.
“We have identified transfer targets – ones that we think will suit our group,” he said.
“On top of actual ability, character and personality are absolutely key for us.
“What is pleasing is that competition for places is already looking good. Anyone who comes on off the bench knows their job and you can see just how hungry everyone is.”
