Millwall manager Neil Harris anticipates a 'difficult game' with Leeds United on Saturday afternoon

Marcelo Bielsa's men top the Championship table after six games and are yet to suffer a defeat with early talk of a return to the Premier League beginning to gather momentum.

The Lions were one of the surprise packages last season, finishing just three points outside a play-off spot despite having just been promoted from League One.

However, Harris' side have began the campaign poorly, dropping to 17th in the table following a run of three consecutive defeats. But nevertheless, Millwall are strong at home, losing just twice The Den since November last year.

Harris has called for Millwall to be 'resolute' and said they need to get back to being 'really nitty-gritty' for the visit of Leeds.

“We’ll be working really hard over the international break. There is no guarantee of winning a game of football but it is about getting back to being really nitty-gritty and at our best.”
