MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett believes a confidence boost is all Andy Keogh needs to rediscover his clinical touch in front of goal this season.

Keogh has scored just two goals since the international break in November – his last coming against Bolton from the penalty spot eight games ago.

The Republic of Ireland international spent a month on the sidelines with a broken toe at the turn of the year and has looked noticeably short of belief since his return to action.



But Jackett told NewsAtDen:  "I am very confident Andy can come through this. He has missed some big chances recently – early in the game at Barnsley and a couple against Luton Town.

"There have been others as well and the player lexapro generic liquid will be more aware of those than anyone. As much work as a forward does, there is only one thing that gives you confidence and that is scoring.

"It is funny how that final finish can make such a big difference with other areas of a player's game. That does happen and I think that's the case with Andy at the moment.



"I don't think our forwards really fired against Peterborough – both Andy and Rob Hulse did a hell of a lot of running but they didn't have the shots I was looking for from my front two in a home game.

"But Andy will continue to work at it, he'll get goals and he'll come through it."

    Hurry Andy FFS and find your form, but why single Andy out? WHat about Trotter who looks like he has thrown his toys out of the pram cos no club came in for him ,lazy basta-d. KJ should send him out on loan and bring in Wrighty.

    Come on AK get your head straightened mate
    you might need to be a bit more selfish in the next couple games cause the CM ain't gonna give you any service. And playing with hulse ain't gonna work either, wood and trotter were your lucky charms mate and ones left and the other hasn't been the same since the aliens abducted him. Keep working at it and it'll come good for ya.

      And therein lies the problem. AK is not a selfish person but you have to be if you wannabe a striker. Hardcore fact.

        Yep it's a hardcore fact, and probably the reason why you can't play him and hulse together,afobe or Tyson would be more suited to either.

    It's not just him that needs to find form its the whole team. Henry is the only one that looks half decent at the moment.

    Henry is my vote for player of the season tbh. Has been outstanding of late and had a very good season amongst a team playing poorly. It's not the goals that are worrying me too much with keogh his never been a goalscorer its the fact he hasn't been able to control the ball or have any movement whatsoever in last month or so.

    He's lost at the minute couple of goals and assists he will be back, he looks shot to bits on that bench, the team need to pull together rather have 11 s*** players giving 100% than 11 class player being lazy, playing the Millwall way
