Jackett pleased with squad depth

MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett says the return of key players to his squad is a welcome relief ahead of a busy period for the Lions.

Jackett was only able to name five substitutes out of a possible seven for Saturday's 1-1 draw with Southampton in the FA Cup, but Shane Lowry, Alan Dunne and Ryan Mason are all available for tonight's Championship clash with Watford.

“With the likes of Lowry and Dunne available to us, they are good options," he told the club's official website.

"Sowah isn’t necessarily going to feature in the first team squad just yet. We will assess his performance in training for a week or two before we see if he is of a standard that can improve us.

“Mason has trained and looked sharp and has played some eleven-a-side games with Spurs reserves, so I think he is fine for this week and is good to go.

“Dunne and Lowry have been training and are fine. We are waiting on Jimmy Abdou, but I think he will be fit for Watford.

“Paul Robinson is saying he will be fit for West Ham which is a good thing, however if he doesn’t make it, he will be 100% for Derby County."

Jackett has failed to notch a single victory over former club Watford during his tenure at The Den, but insists that does not bother him.

“Our own form, how we play and us winning games of football this week are the things at the top of my mind. Not about it being my old club."
