KENNY Jackett says Millwall can not become over-reliant on Darius Henderson after the striker scored both goals to beat Bolton.

Henderson, who took his tally for the season to six against the Trotters, has netted four times in his last three outings – earning the Lions five crucial points in the process.

The 31-year-old scored equalisers against Burnley and Bristol City last week and ensured Millwall head into the international break unbeaten in three games with a late winner against Bolton.

"He has been scoring goals and got 19 last year," said Jackett. "That's half a dozen now so far this season so it is a good return.

"There were some big chances for Chris Wood against Bolton as well. Unfortunately they didn't go in but he is a goal scorer and he will score.

"We can't just rely on Darius for his goals, we must be working hard where Andy Keogh, Wood, James Henry and Liam Trotter come into it.

"Also on top of that we have to have enough from the back where we can come up and score from set pieces as well to get our goals total up."
