HARRIS RELIVES MAGIC MOMENT

MILLWALL striker Neil Harris says he will treasure the moment of his wonder goal against Watford on New Years Day, which secured an emphatic 4-1 win for the Londoners.
Harris was mobbed by his team mates after curling a wonderful left-footed effort into the far corner in the closing stages of the match, as it was his first since he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in June.
"The celebration made it that bit extra-special for me. (Goalkeeper) Tony Warner had said all along that he would like to be involved, and it was fairly safe for him to run the length of the pitch when I made it 4-1 in the last minute," an elated Harris said.
"It was a very important moment for me to score and it has been a long time coming. This is a New Year and a new era for me in some ways.
"This was a special moment and one that I will treasure for a long, long time.
"I didn't feel any pressure about scoring, although I do admit that I have dreamt about it for a good few months."
Harris was expected to miss the entire season with the cancer and his return will certainly be a boost to The Lions as they push for a place amongst the play-off pack.
