Jackett slams lacklustre Lions

KENNY Jackett blasted his lacklustre Millwall side after they were beaten 2-0 by Watford.

Goals from Troy Deeney and Joe Garner ended the Lions' three-match unbeaten run, and Jackett was furious with the manner of his team's defeat.

"I thought it was a poor performance," he told the club's official website. "It was always going to be a tight, scrappy game but the goals we gave away were poor.

"Deeney and Garner were too much of a handful early on. I think Deeney had four shots in the first half-hour and three of them were good chances.

“For the second goal, Lloyd Doyley has run from left-back, gone past our right winger, our right full-back and our centre-half to get himself into a good position. They were poor goals to give away.

“We didn’t do enough on the ball, we didn’t create enough, we didn’t go past anybody and we didn’t have a player out there who was capable of taking someone out of the game.

“Our overall play and the optimism of the crowd would have been effected by a goal, and it is up to us to make the play but too many of our players were flat and we could do a lot better.”

Millwall now travel to Upton Park on Saturday for their much-anticipated clash with rivals West Ham, and Jackett is keen to move on from Tuesday's defeat.

He said: “We have to put this one behind us but we have to analyse it too. We have to make sure we get the right players, the right blend and the right blend for that particular game because it is a big game.”

    With over half the season gone, shouldn't our manager know the "right blend" and "right players" by now?
