Millwall manager Kenny Jackett accused his side of a lack of passion and enthusiasm after they were brushed aside 5-0 by Wolves in their Carling Cup third-round tie at Molineux.

The Lions endured a nightmare start and found themselves 2-0 down after just seven minutes following David Edwards' early opener and Adam Hammill's free-kick.

George Elokobi added a third before the end of a one-way first half and, although it was a more balanced encounter after the break, James Spray fired a fourth, which was claimed by Sam Vokes post-match, and Adlene Guedioura completed a miserable night for Millwall with a sweet 30-yard strike before Jackett lamented: "It was a poor performance."

The Lions have now won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions and Jackett added: "I feel for the 200 or 300 fans who came up from London.

"Poor start, poor goals we gave away, not enough fightback after that, not enough passion and we fell away. It's a very poor run of games for us at the moment.

"I was looking for more. As I said, we started poorly and got well beaten. I thought there was a lack of passion and lack of enthusiasm, definitely."
