KENNY Jackett insists Millwall will not go back to basics after three straight losses left them in the Championship relegation zone.
Defeat to Brighton on Saturday was the Lions' fifth of the season but Jackett says he will persevere with his plans to evolve his team's style of play.
Jackett wants to see his side become less direct and more patient in possession and has no plans to perform a u-turn.
"We're going to continue to play," he said. "I think you have to. You have to play out from the back to be constructive.
"That doesn't mean you don't defend when the opposition has a corner or are in crossing positions.
"You still have to defend. In possession, you need every option. Be it a short ball or a long ball, you need that selection all the way through your team.
"We will continue to do that and add to being better in both boxes. That's our aim."
Millwall find themselves 22nd in the league table and while the new campaign is only seven games old, Jackett says he is concerned that losing is already becoming a habit.
"I look at the table every single day," he said. "Anybody who tells you any different is lying. I'm constantly aware of it.
"After three losses on the trot, you start to look at the impact that has on your players.
"The plus side is that there over 100 points still to play for this season. And if we can keep playing with the same type of spirit that we showed at the end, that will be a positive for us.
"But you definitely look at the table and you don’t want to be in the bottom three."
