KENNY Jackett believes beating Wolves on Tuesday would be the perfect preparation for Millwall's FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.
The Lions welcome Dean Saunders' strugglers to The Den in the Championship ahead of their last-eight tie with Rovers on Sunday and Jackett says three points would be a timely confidence boost.
And the Millwall boss admits his players need to compete on both fronts if they are to prevent their season from petering out after defeat to Leeds United on Saturday.
He said: "From our point of view and in terms of this season, is the glass half full or half empty? That has very much been the case since we've been back in the Championship.
"We don't want to be sliding down the table after what were two good away performances to some degree. We did not have the rub of the green against Leeds in terms of the decisions.
"We go back to The Den and I have said to the players that we have to focus very quickly on getting results at home. Getting results at home in such a big week for the club is key.
"We can't afford to get sucked into a dog fight at the bottom and that's very much on my mind. We have to address that on Tuesday and we want to be going into the cup game playing well.
"The FA Cup is a big opportunity for us but you can't turn form on and off like a tap – there has to be some momentum and confidence in the team."
