Neil Harris said he was “upset” as his Millwall side slipped to a last-minute defeat against Wycombe Wanderers in the Emirates FA Cup.
The gaffer called his team were “second best” and “didn’t compete all over the park” in the Second Round clash at The Den which ended 2-1 to the visitors.
Wycombe’s Michael Harriman netted the winner four minutes into stoppage time to build on Paul Hayes’ opener.
Although Harris was forced to make a host of changes to his starting line-up and didn’t hide his disappointment in their performance.
“There was only one team on the pitch who played like it was a Cup tie and that was Wycombe,” he told the club website .
“I was upset with the team for the performance over 90 minutes. It was below par from us.
“I reminded the players (at half-time) that they were playing an FA Cup game against a team that was committed, direct and who came with a game plan to get about us and bully us. In the first-half we let them do it.
“In the second-half we competed much better but it still wasn’t good enough by our standards.
“Younger players will learn as they go but senior players have got to be better and mentally stronger. We need to see more leadership in the team during games like that.”
Meanwhile there was a positive for Millwall as Ben Thompson scored his first goal for the side.
