KENNY Jackett was left frustrated with his side's finishing after Blackburn Rovers took Millwall to a replay in their FA Cup quarter-final.
The Lions were held to a goalless draw at The Den but spurned a host of chances to guarantee their place in the last four of the competition at the first time of asking.
Forward Rob Hulse was guilty of the game's worst miss, lofting Andy Keogh's cut-back over the bar from inside the six-yard box in the 63rd minute of a tight encounter.
Jackett said: "I have some frustration because there was a win there for us. Goalscoring has been a problem for us in 2013 – we had an outstanding 2012.
"Today showed that when we get on top of the opposition, put them under pressure and create chances, we need to score. But there was no lack of passion from the players.
"It was a tremendous atmosphere and I'm sure the crowd felt, like me, that there was a win there for us. Unfortunately we couldn't just find the finish or that final ball.
"We put a lot of balls into the box with players in there – but it did not fall for us or we did not finish things off. We need to find goalscoring inside and outside of the club to improve."
Jackett sympathised with Hulse after his miss and is hoping the QPR loanee will have better luck in front of goal in the weeks ahead.
"Rob scored a key goal for us against Luton earlier in the competition before picking up an injury," he said. "In the few games that he's had for us, he's had chances.
"That does give me encouragement because when forwards make chances and get on the end of things, the goals will come for somebody of his experience.
"When you play forwards and they don't have a shot or look like scoring, then there is a problem. But he has looked the one most likely to score and that was the case today."
The Lions will travel to Lancashire for the replay on Wednesday and Jackett revealed he is likely to tinker with his starting line-up again, having made six changes for this match.
"I think it will change slightly," he said. "If you look at our away form, that has been good so far this season. We've been up to Ewood Park before in the league so we know a lot about each other.
"If you're looking for a favourite, it is close but I'm sure it would slightly be the home side. We will perhaps have to change things in terms of fresh energy.
"From the players' point of view, they have a big test this week. We shouldn't worry about the extra game before the local derby against Charlton on Saturday.
"It's a big week and we're looking forward to Wednesday night."
