But as it is, their campaign has ended with promotion to the Championship, thanks to a 1-0 win over Bradford City in the League One play-off final at Wembley on Saturday.Their manager, Neil Harris, does not really need anything other than his playing days to confirm his status as a Millwall legend but this adds a delightful layer of polish.
