KENNY Jackett has teased an attacking approach from his Millwall side for the ‘massive’ game with Rovers at the Keepmoat tonight.

Jackett has been concerned with the amount of goals his side have conceded in recent games.

But he is delighted with the Lions’ performances in attack as they battle against the drop.

He said: “It’s a massive game for us.

“Doncaster’s results and performances by and large have been pretty good.

“They’ve had quite a number of draws in the last half dozen games whereas we’ve been a side that’s gone 4-4-2, gone for it, created lots of chances and either won or lost.

“We have to respect Doncaster and the ability they’ve got in the side.

“The likes of Diouf and Piquionne are very talented players and at home they’ll see their opportunity.

“But our performance level is what we’re looking at and consistently trying to improve.”

Millwall lost 3-2 at the New Den to table topping Southampton on Saturday which left them in 19th place, six points off the drop zone.

The magnitude of tonight’s game is not lost on Jackett.

He said: “It is a massive game and it’s definitely a six-pointer.

“It’s a great opportunity for us.

“We ran a very good team close on Saturday and didn’t disgrace ourselves.

“We need to find a winning formula and need to find it quick.

“Unfortunately in the last two games we’ve conceded six goals and that is something we have to address.”

Jackett has signed Sheffield United midfielder Nick Montgomery on loan until the end of the Championship season.

Montgomery is the Blades’ longest serving player but has made just 17 appearances this term.

Millwall will assess the fitness of captain Paul Robinson who suffered an ankle knock against Southampton.

Midfielder Liam Trotter will miss out with a thigh injury.
