MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett says he intends to keep faith with the players who beat Southampton in the FA Cup for Saturday's Championship clash with Derby.

The likes of Josh Wright and Ryan Mason, making rare starts for the Lions, impressed on the south coast as Jackett's side pulled off a shock 3-2 win over the Saints.

And Jackett says he will give his fringe players an opportunity to shine in the league.

"Those players will get the opportunity to go again," he told News Shopper.

"I changed the team on Tuesday because we'd had a couple of defeats and I think we needed to freshen the side up.

"We changed the system slightly and we put some fresh faces in. We've got a big run of games coming up where we want to transfer Tuesday's cup performance and result into the league.

"I hope the players gained confidence out of it and can reproduce that form."
