Millwall boss hoping for home comforts

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has set his sights on safety with three upcoming home games being key for his side. 

Jackett's men host Blackburn in the first of those matches at the New Den tonight, and with a busy fixture pile up due to their FA Cup semi-final exploits, Millwall are hoping to make home advantage pay. 

"From our point of view we still have four games left and the equation does lie with getting a team that has the energy to get the points we need at home," said Jackett speaking to Sky Sports. 

Defeat to Huddersfield at the weekend left Millwall just four points clear of trouble at the bottom of the Championship, but with two extra games on their relegation rivals, victory in South-East London tonight would make it safe for the home side. 

"We have to lick our wounds, make sure we get it right and have a freshness and move on again. I'm obviously concerned, but we have to look forward and focus on our three home games in a row. We must get over it quickly," he added.

There is selection concerns ahead of the match tonight for Jackett though, as winger Chris Taylor looks set to miss the rest of the season with a groin injury and left-back Shane Lowry is suspended. The Lions boss also expects to be without Sean St Ledger and Liam Trotter.

Blackburn will be looking to bounce back themselves after they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Watford on Saturday, and caretaker manager Gary Bowyer will hope for a much improved performance from his side or risk leaving them with a lot to do in the last two games of the season.
