KENNY Jackett says Millwall are unlikely to delve into the loan market again after bolstering their attacking ranks with the signing of Chris Wood.

The West Brom striker made his debut for the Lions in their midweek defeat to Cardiff City at The Den, coming on as second-half substitute for Darius Henderson, and looked lively during his 30-minute cameo.

And having failed to source a replacement for Tottenham loan star Harry Kane during the summer transfer window, Jackett says he is finally pleased with his forward options.

But when asked whether he would be strengthening his squad further, the Millwall boss said: "I don't think so, no. After signing Wood, we'll be working with this group.

"It's a small squad and we need to find the winning equation we need.

"We've taken Chris on loan, he's 20-years-old and he has some experience of playing in this division. I don't think it will take him long to adjust and to adjust to us.

"If I'm looking at Andy Keogh, Henderson, Wood and Shaun Batt as my four strikers, with John Marquis out for some time, they give me some good options.

"I'm looking to those four to give us the firepower we need to push on and do well."
