Kenny Jackett: Says Millwall worked hard for their win at Middlesbrough

The Lions led 2-0 at half-time thanks to a George Friend own goal and a Martyn Woolford effort, and then held on for the win after Curtis Main had pulled one back after the interval.

Jackett said: "It was a fantastic result and a great performance

"Middlesbrough is a very difficult place to come and get a result, so we have got to be delighted with it.

"We made a few changes and we went with two up top, and it paid off for us. The boys worked very hard for it and it was an honest performance."

Middlesbrough had what would have been a stoppage-time equaliser contentiously ruled out for offside and Jackett thought the decision was correct.

"Having looked at it, I thought the one at the end was definitely offside," he said. "The officials got it right."

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!
