Millwall striker Harris feared for personal safety at West Ham

Millwall striker Neil Harris admits he feared for his safety when West Ham fans invaded the pitch during this week's Carling Cup clash.

Harris said: "It was extremely hostile and volatile. My concern was for my team-mates.

"At one stage it wasn't very pleasant.

"We've had it at Millwall when fans come on to celebrate and everyone makes a big hoo-ha about it.

"Anything can happen when they are on the pitch but most of the time fans are on the pitch to celebrate a goal, not to attack players.

"I've played in big local derbies and red-hot atmospheres. They are terrific games to play in.

"It means so much to the supporters but sometimes they get a little bit over-zealous."
