Kenny Jackett: Millwall boss disappointed after Burnley defeat

The Lions sit ninth in the Championship table, with Burnley leapfrogging their opponents and underlining their promotion credentials with a goal in each half at The Den, Sam Vokes and Danny Ings on target.

A disappointed Jackett said: "The result didn't please me. We didn't do enough to get something out of the game. Burnley showed more hunger and desire for the game than we did and that's disappointing," said Jackett.

"We started the game poorly, on the wings they got in behind and got off crosses far too easily. The first goal is a prime example. He (Junior Stanislas) went past two to deliver for Sam Vokes to score.

"We didn't defend well, not with everything we've got, not for our life, which we do when we're playing well.

"Going forward, take the start of the second half, we spread the ball across the face of goal but didn't get on the end of it.

"We needed that goal to go and lift us and lift us again. We changed formation in the last half hour to free up the centre but we couldn't do enough.

"Burnley were in defensive mode by then, they had the lead and we couldn't move the ball well enough to get in behind them."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
