Jackett was furious after a stoppage-time goal condemned his side to a 2-1 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

The Lions will now head into Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Wigan with a flea in their ear, and Dunne says they will be even more determined to perform.

"It might not do us any harm getting beaten and getting a rollicking," he said.

"Sometimes you get complacent. If we had won we might have got complacent going into Saturday. Getting beaten, we had a rollicking off the manager and it will fire a few of us up for Saturday. That's important."

Millwall were leading after Jimmy Abdou's second-minute goal but Miguel Llera levelled and Chris Maguire hit Wednesday's last-gasp winner to leave Jackett's side still in the relegation picture.

Dunne added: "The manager was disappointed with the two goals. Defensively we have been solid of late but they were sloppy goals.

"We have to learn from that and move on quickly. The Championship is out of the way for a week now so we can prepare for Wembley."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
