Jackett – We lacked a spark
Millwall boss Kenny Jackett felt his side was lacking width in
their dour 0-0 draw with Ipswich at The Den.
Chances were few and far between and a point did little to calm
the nerves of the FA Cup semi-finalists, who remain embroiled in a
tight battle to avoid dropping out of the Championship.
Jackett said: “I felt that we had the better of the chances –
Ipswich had a couple but we had more that were clear-cut.
“Since the (FA) Cup quarter final we’ve won two games and drawn
one, but the gap’s closed at the bottom over this Bank Holiday
“I felt today that we generally lacked width, even early on in
the game until Ipswich just matched us up.
“Early in the game, I felt that even though we passed the ball
well, we lacked players that could go past people. I probably
should have introduced Liam Feeney earlier on because he did have a
positive effect when he came on.
“Looking at our squad, we’ve got James Henry and Chris Taylor
who are very capable of beating a man, putting good balls into the
box and stretching sides who were unavailable.
“If there’s any criticism of us we lacked width and we really
needed it today.”
