KENNY Jackett has been named Championship manager of the month for November – and is targeting more success.

Jackett pipped Watford's Gianfranco Zola and Charlton's Chris Powell to the award after overseeing five wins and a draw.

And the Lions boss said: "I'm very pleased to get the award and it was a very good month for us, the players really rose to the occasion.

"If you look at the points total rather than the places, which most managers will do at this time of the season, there's a lot of sides with an opportunity to get into the top six.

"I'm pleased to say we are one of them, we lost at Ipswich last week and we want to bounce back with a good win at home to Leicester, followed up by an away trip to Brighton.

"There are some excellent games coming up for us – some big games and ones we are looking forward to."

Millwall find themselves in seventh place going into the busy Christmas period and Jackett is keen for his players to push on.

He said: "I've emphasised in my programme notes and in the local paper the importance of the next three games in eight days.

"A good eight days can really affect everything you are doing in terms of belief, in particular the confidence of the players, which can be fragile.

"If we can have a good eight days we can go into Christmas with some confidence."
