Kenny Jackett: Looking to halt Millwall's poor run

The Lions have an immediate chance to make amends for the 3-0 defeat when they host Blackburn on Tuesday night.

Millwall's run to the FA Cup semi-final has left them with a backlog of fixtures and, Jackett admits, a few tired legs.

They have three home games in a row against Rovers, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, and still need a couple of points to be sure of avoiding relegation.

Jackett said: "The side lacked energy and sparkle, not necessarily commitment, but certainly sparkle.

"From our point of view we still have four games left and the equation does lie with getting a team that has the energy to get the points we need at home.

"We have to lick our wounds, make sure we get it right and have a freshness and move on again.

"I'm obviously concerned, but we have to look forward and focus on our three home games in a row. We must get over it quickly."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
