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."

ang on there!! We've only just won the second in a row. Don't we have to win three, like Brazil, to get to keep the Cup permanently at our stadium? ;-)

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
