KENNY Jackett believes Millwall can use their underdog status to their advantage during Saturday's FA Cup fifth round clash with Bolton.

The Lions welcome Owen Coyle's side to The Den with a place in the quater-final of the historic competition at stake, and Jackett is confident his players will rise to the occasion.

"If we start the game with some quality and some passion, the supporters will respond," he told the club's official website. "The atmosphere at The Den is fantastic when there's a big game and when we're the underdog.

"I see it as a fantastic opportunity for our players to pit their wits against an established Premier League side.

"Since the Watford game we've played very well and we want to continue that. We don't want to be inconsistent. Our flow and our structure are very important at the moment.

"It is something different and for the club as a whole it is extra revenue and also promises to be a really good occasion with potential for us to do well."
