We didn't defend well enough

We didn't defend well enough

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett was disappointed that his side couldn't find a clear path into the FA Cup 4th Round on Saturday.

The Lions had led the game 2-1 going in at half time only to be pegged back by youngster Shelley's free kick 13 minutes into the second half.

It means a long mid-week trip for Millwall a week on Tuesday for the replay, but like his counterpart Gudjon Thoradarson, Jackett is happy to still be in Today's fourth round draw.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, Jackett said: 'It would have been nice to put the tie away today but it wasn't to be. I actually think we played better than we have in the last few games - we had good possession and got some good balls in their box.

'I was disappointed with their goals because we didn't defend them well enough. For their second I wasn't happy with the way we set up to defend the free-kick. It looked like we left too much of a gap for Shelley to hit, and he smashed it in.

'We're still in the fourth round draw though and that's good because the FA Cup is a competition we're very enthusiastic about. Another game creates interest and revenue and can help your season overall.'
