MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett cut a frustrated figure after his side were beaten by two late penalties against table-topping Southampton.

Rickie Lambert scored twice from the spot in the final five minutes of a topsy-turvy clash as the Saints fought back from 2-1 down to win 3-2 in controversial fashion.

Defenders Paul Robinson and Alan Dunne were the Lions duo deemed to have committed punishable offences by referee Fred Graham.



"I haven't seen them again, but to get both decisions as the away side just goes to show what 2,500 fans behind the goal can do," Jackett told the club's official website.

"You usually get one out of the two, but not both. We bounced back well and then in the second half I felt we had the measure of our opposition.

"The last ten minutes was full of defining moments and big decisions."
