Jackett wants Millwall to repay fans' loyalty with Leeds win

KENNY Jackett wants to repay the fans who put up with draconian ticket restrictions imposed by West Yorkshire Police with a win against Leeds United on Saturday.

For a fourth consecutive season, Lions supporters travelling to Yorkshire will be forced to pick up their tickets from Woolley Edge motorway service station.

And with the match kicking-off at an earlier time of 12.30pm, less than 100 visiting fans will make the trip to Elland Road and chief executive Andy Ambler has backed those boycotting the fixture.

Jackett told NewsAtDen: "It is disappointing. We've http://www.mentalhealthupdate.com/klonopin.html played many games against Leeds in recent years – in League One and in the Championship – and the supporters have been well-behaved.

"To still be in that place, where we only have 77 people going, is disappointing. While we realise it is not the clubs' decision – it's down to the police – it does disappoint me.

"But to those that have persevered and are going up there regardless, myself and the players really do appreciate their support. There's nothing more we want to do than win for them."

    Nicely put KJ
    It's not fare and completely out of ours and Leeds utds hands. But it's a fact that it will be the same in the next season or two, I think us fans who would normally go, along with the club, should keep writing to the Yorkshire police to state our case, but WE have to behave at home and other venues if we're going to make it a strong one. Maybe free travel would have been a nice touch for those that are going or give them free travel for another away game to show how much they really are appreciated.

      Yeah mate, in that time we've received no more than 1000 tickets and they get 2000 with no restriction. The only time we sold out within this period was the play off game, and they treated us like s***, the old bill were the worst ive seen for a long time and that was at the services, proper took the p*** out of us. They all ways give us about an hr and 1/4 time frame to get the tickets and make you wait in the car park, they then round you up and give you an escort to the stadium car park where the old bill there treat you even worse. The last time I can remember worse treatment was Everton away in 88.
      It must be said that we probably have one of the safest grounds in the country and we're the only club whose locked home fans in so the away coaches can get out safely. Same old millwall get accused and blamed of all sorts and yet we do the common decent thing like being good hosts and making sure our guests are looked after before ourselves. Perhaps sky can do a report on that.

    We should have sent all their tickets back and then asked our local ol Bill to do the same due to 'safety concerns'
