Jackett: We lacked creativity

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett bemoaned his side's lack of a creative spark after seeing them held to a 0-0 draw at The Den by local rivals Charlton.

The point saw the Lions' unbeaten run extended to 14 matches as they moved into fifth place in the Championship, keeping a fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process.

But Jackett felt something was missing from their performance, despite former Charlton midfielder Dany N'Guessan having his late goal-bound header stopped on the line as the home side controlled the second half.

"I thought it was a dominant performance, barring the finishing. In the second half, I don't think Charlton got out of their half," he said.

"I can't remember them having a shot, but it didn't quite drop for us in the box. Perhaps we needed a spark of creativity.

"I'm pleased with the players. A lot of our game was right and it gives me as a manager, good encouragement for the future."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
