KENNY Jackett praised his team's battling display after Millwall ground out a 2-0 win over play-off contenders Hull City.

The Millwall boss was particularly pleased with the work rate shown by his team in a match where The Tigers dominated possession for long spells.

"Clean sheets are very hard to find and everybody earned the clean sheet," he told the club's official website.

"From Harry Kane and Andy Keogh up front with their work rate, right the way through to the goalkeeper – who wasn't really needed that much today. He made one save in the first half but other than that our goalkeeper wasn't necessarily needed and it was a very good clean sheet.

"Easter is always a big weekend, and it is for us. We have done one half of our job and we have to continue to do that. We go down to Portsmouth and then we are very quickly back here at The Den on Saturday against Leicester which is a big game.

"The opportunities are there for us and we have to focus on our games. But at this stage of the season if results go for you, it can put you in a better position."
