Millwall boss Neil Harris calls side a shambles on his return to Southend United

Echo: Neil Harris - saw his Millwall side thrashed at Southend United Neil Harris - saw his Millwall side thrashed at Southend United

MILLWALL’S caretaker manager Neil Harris labelled his side a shambles after they sunk to a shock 4-1 defeat at League Two side Southend United.

Eastwood based Harris, who was with the Shrimpers last season, saw the Championship club extend their winless streak to six matches on his return to Roots Hall.

And Jermaine Easter’s red card, for a stamp on Ben Coker just before half-time, also infuriated the 36-year-old.

"The boys let themselves down, we weren’t good enough and all four goals were a shambles,” fumed Harris.

"Jermaine Easter has let himself down and more importantly the team after his sending off right before half time but I thought we were second best all over the pitch and it's not good enough.

"The key factor today was how we defended, we've conceded more than 50 goals this season now and after how we've defended here at Roots Hall I'm not surprised by that stat.

"We tried to be patient in the second half because we can't chase the game with 10 men and Martyn Woolford's goal gave us a bit of hope but Southend killed the game off well and full credit to them.”
