Millwall manager Kenny Jackett vowed to only take notice of his team's results for the rest of the season after they regained the ascendancy in the race for second place.

Goals from Shaun Batt, Tony Craig, Danny Schofield and substitute Neil Harris secured a 4-0 victory over Gillingham and made it 14 games undefeated at The Den, where the Lions have lost only once all season.

"It's easy to look at other fixtures but our outlook is to put on a good performance and results will look after themselves," said Jackett. "We're taking each game individually, we need to keep our standards high and keep players fit and available."

He added: "We now have to focus and take the good things from the display because we have to capitalise and keep our foot on the gas.

"You can't get complacent in our position. There is a determination to get promoted, however that happens to be. Automatic will be better but there is a real determination in the players and they are working very hard."

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson, whose side have yet to pick up an away victory this season, admitted there was no way back after Garry Richards was stretchered off.

The defender collided with his own goalkeeper Alan Julian with the score at 2-0 after 51 minutes.

"It was just one of those freak accidents and it wasn't a good one for us because then we faced a strong Millwall side without a solid pair of centre-halves," said Stimson.

"Their first goal was decent play, the second goal - I don't think he'll score many like that again, if he ever has before.

"I don't like being in the relegation fight, I hate it. But it's in our hands and we'll take responsibility and I think we'll have enough."
