KENNY Jackett admitted after Millwall's 2-2 draw with Blackpool that he was pleased to see his side finish above South London rivals Crystal Palace in the Championship standings.

The Lions picked up a hard-earned point against the Tangerines to edge one point and one place above the Eagles in the table as they brought the curtain down on their 2011-12 campaign.

In-form duo Andy Keogh and Harry Kane scored a goal a piece to ensure Millwall finished the season on a seven-match unbeaten run, and Jackett was thrilled with his team's performance.

"We've won six and drawn two in our last eight games, which is outstanding form in this division," he told the club's official site.

"We've crept above Crystal Palace in the league as well, so there have been lots of positives at the end of the season to take into next year.

"We've finished 17 points above the relegation zone and it didn't look like it would turn out like that for most of the season. It shows you how well we've done towards the end of the season. Our aim next season is to get back into that top ten.

"We had 20 shots to Blackpool's ten today, and possibly edged them possession-wise. If we're looking to emulate sides like Blackpool, I'd say we did well today."
