Millwall fell to their first home defeat of the season on Saturday after a Nahki Wells brace gave city rivals QPR a 2-1 win.

Early season promise and an air of excitement around The Den has long been forgotten and the reality of another season in a Championship dogfight beckons unless something changes.

Bartosz Bialkowksi’s error in the 72nd minute after Shaun Hutchinson brought parity moments earlier proved crucial, and extended the Lions winless run to six games.

Lions boss Neil Harris has always maintained he would never get carried away with the positive early season results, likewise in defeat.

But the manner of the defeat, their third in five games, has started rumblings of #Harrisout trend.

Harris will be no stranger to pressure having come under scrutiny at the back end of last season before they avoided relegation, but at such an early stage in the season this campaign, the concerns seem different.

Millwall fans, sensing a case of deja-vu voiced their opinions following defeat to Mark Warburton’s side, with many taking aim at the club legend for their poor run of form.


There were however those who still backed Harris to get them out of this rut, as he did last season. And who's to say the man who got them promoted three years ago, led them to a top half finish two years ago, and avoided relegation last term doesn't deserve a chance to see 'his' team give the league a crack.
