Neil Harris was left frustrated after Millwall failed to beat Brentford on Good Friday.

Millwall took the lead through Lee Gregory but  were pegged back by Joe Dasilva’s winder strike and were unable to find a way through after the visitors were reduced to ten men.

“We played 55 minutes against ten men so we’re frustrated not to win the game. How good a point that is we will know a little bit more in a an hour and a half’s time and a little bit more certainly on the 5th of May.

“It was a tough game today I felt for us at home to Brentford. I thought Brentford could come and be like Brazil today, when you’ve got quality players playing with no pressure, it’s a tough team to play against. My only frustration today is our lack of creativity in the final third. The amount of time we got their final third entries 11 vs 10 will be off the rector scale did we do enough? no brentford got into a fifth, a sixth of the areas we got into but we better in those areas and thats the difference with us and Brentford. A point gained, Yes certainly have to look at it as a positive going into Villa on Monday but disappointment we didn’t create more.

Ben Thompson was involved in a collision with Henrik Dalsgaard which resulted in the Brentford skipper being sent off. It also brought an end to Thompson;’s afternoon as he had to replaced with injury.

“At the moment with Ben we don’t know, it looks like a hamstring and we’ll have to see how he is. He’s been our best player in the last couple of months, so to lose him is a major blow. I felt that 11 against 10, put another centre forward on the pitch, Tom obviously came on and did so well against Sheffield United, did we give him the right service? Well its a balance for me as an ex centre forward but you have to anticipate and my attacking players didn’t anticipate the ball in the box at all well today.

There were altercations. At one stage the two sets of players came together in front on the home bench. Jed Wallace was involved in a a pushing match with Emilano Marcondes. “I didn’t think it was spicy, I was a bit appalled by some of what I saw on the pitch I’ve got to be honest, I thought it was quite comical come of the play acting but look thats modern day football.
