Jackett: Cup win can spur Lions

Published Add your comment

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett praised his side's battling qualities after they advanced to the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Mary's.

The Lions were a goal down with 11 minutes remaining of the fourth-round replay, but former Saints loanee Dany N'Guessan levelled before Liam Feeney struck a superb stoppage-time winner.

Millwall, who are struggling in the npower Championship, now face a home tie with Bolton and Jackett believes his side can take confidence from Tuesday night's win and Saturday's narrow 2-1 defeat at rivals West Ham. "I felt there were two good performances at West Ham and Southampton," he said.
