Jackett: Millwall's winner against Leeds was a "quality goal"

KENNY Jackett described Chris Wood's winner against Leeds United as a "quality goal" after Millwall extended their unbeaten run to ten matches.

Wood was on hand to convert Shane Lowry's inch-perfect cross at the back post in the 85th minute of the Lions' 1-0 victory at The Den.

And Jackett said: "It was a real quality goal that decided it. It was a fantastic ball from Shane and Chris was in the right place at the right time.

"Any win in the Championship is hard-earned and it was today. Millwall-Leeds games are very passionate and today was no different. We're pleased to come out on top.

"It's an achievement to go ten unbeaten. It shows that there is some character in the dressing room.

"We feel we've done it by reducing the number of goals we've conceded and it was another good clean sheet against Leeds.

"We have to keep working at it. We have two tough away trips to Blackburn and Wolves coming up. They're great games and they can't come quickly enough really."

Leeds boss Neil Warnock criticised referee Mark Halsey for sending-off Luke Varney and for not awarding the visitors a penalty for shirt-pulling in the area, but Jackett said:

"My first impressions were that it was a red card. I saw no penalty that should have been given."

    Goddard cost 800k. A record for Millwall at the time and STILL is. How long ago was that ? What absolute garbage he was.
    Wood not worth breaking the record for ?? After so many years ? The best centre forward we've had for decades.
    COME ON !!!
    Let's get him on board permanently, lock Trotter in to a longer term contract, get the new right back Smith on board and give the long suffering suppoters someting to feel good about!
    No more League one and two players in the squad, just Championsip and potential Premiership players and anything can happen.

    Kenny must have been a happy man at the end. A scrappy game with the Lions having only 3 shots on target despite playing against 10 men for nearly half the game. A blinding cross from Lowry (M.O.M.) and a flashing header by Wood won us the points. Leeds were desperately poor and got what they deserved.
    Wood had a really disappointing game but had completed a 10,000 mile plus trip to China midweek...promises to be a great asset if we can sign him but Mr Berlyson must dig deep.
