KENNY Jackett says Millwall have already recovered from their Wembley hangover and are fully focused on beating Watford on Tuesday night.
The Lions have been left with little time to ponder Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup semi-final loss to Wigan but Jackett insists that result has already been forgotten as his side target Championship survival.
Jackett told NewsAtDen: "The players seemed very bright, bubbly and determined in training. Those that have been out of the team were focused and the lads in the side on Saturday are over it.
"They're looking at the task ahead, which is a big one for us, because we have to capitalise on these games in hand. There's a full programme on Tuesday but we have two extra games coming up.
"As we get about this period this, we want to pick up points sooner rather than later and try to beat our points total of 59 from last year – but most importantly secure our Championship status."
The Hornets, Jackett's former club, have soared up the league table under Gianfranco Zola this term and have all-but secured a play-off place already.
"They have found the formula, brought a lot of new players in and found some good ones," Jackett said. "It's put them third in the league and they are probably the surprise package of the division.
"But the division is what it is – it is open from top to bottom and that is a good thing for us. I haven't beaten Watford during my time here so I hope my perseverance pays off in the end."
Jackett's plans for the game have been disrupted by injuries to both Liam Trotter (knee) and Sean St Ledger (ankle), who have joined fellow midfielder Richard Chaplow in the treatment room.
"In this period we're going to be stretched and injuries are going to happen – unfortunately this has happened in the midfield area, but we feel we have enough competition and cover," he said.
"We have to make sure we have fresh energy for this teaming going forward, because it would take the gloss off a very good cup run if we did get relegated."
