Jackett faced a press room more packed than usual ahead of Millwall's third trip to Wembley under his management.

Wigan await there, and Jackett is determined to ensure his players show up to win the semi-final rather than to enjoy a day out.

"It's great that there is so many people here," he told the assembled media at the club's training ground.

"It shows we've done something right and it's good to see national attention on the club in a positive way.

"It's a great game to look forward to and a big opportunity for us. We've done well to get this far but we want to go to Wembley on Saturday and put on a performance - one which gives us a chance of winning.

"For the players it's really important that they don't play the occasion but they play the football match, and that they concentrate on what happens between the white lines because these things can pass you by very quickly."

Jackett is aware of opposite number Roberto Martinez's qualities having managed him at Swansea, and the Millwall manager knows equally how dangerous Wigan can be.

He said: "Wigan are capable of beating anybody at their level on their day. I don't know if April is a good time to play them as they get going.

"Roberto Martinez was a first class captain and as good a professional as I've seen. He's taken that into management."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
