Millwall boss Neil Harris hails 'electric' fans for Leicester shock

Millwall boss Neil Harris hailed the home fans after their FA Cup defeat of Leicester City.

Millwall progressed to the sixth round of the Emirates FA Cup at Leicester's expense after Shaun Cummings scored in the 90th minute at the Den.

"Going down to 10 men just after half time is tough," Millwall manager Harris said. "It put the pressure and expectation on to Leicester's shoulders and my players did not freeze. It galvanised the stadium.

"The atmosphere in the stadium was electric. It carried the players and my players carried the stadium because of the pressing with 10 men, the closing down and the chances we created. It was everything you would want from a Millwall team."
