KENNY Jackett criticised Millwall's lack of "bite and desire" in their 2-0 loss to Burnley at The Den on Saturday.
The Lions were second-best against the Clarets throughout and goals from Sam Vokes and Danny Ings either side of half-time consigned them to a deserved defeat.
And Jackett said: "I don't think we did enough to get anything out of the game. They showed more hunger and desire than we did and that's disappointing.
"We started poorly and they got in behind us too easily in the wide positions and got crosses in. The first goal was a prime example of that where the winger went past James Henry and Adam Smith.
"We didn't defend well. We didn't defend with everything we've got. We didn't defend for our lives. Ultimately, we showed a lack of bite and a lack of desire.
"At the start of the second-half we put four or five excellent balls across the face of goal and didn't get on the end of them. We couldn't find any kind of combination that was going to open them.
"I changed formation in the last half an hour to free up Henry and Liam Trotter, who got on the ball more, but we couldn't do enough.
"Burnley were in defensive mode by that stage and we couldn't move the ball well enough to get in behind them and score the goals we needed."
