Joy for Jackett as Lions safe
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett hailed his players after they secured npower Championship survival with a 2-1 victory against play-off hopefuls Leicester.
The Lions trounced City at the King Power Stadium earlier in the season and were on course to complete the double after 23 minutes when Tottenham loanee Harry Kane struck home.
Andy Keogh put Millwall further ahead 10 minutes into the second half and, despite substitute Danny Drinkwater's effort ensuring a nervy ending, they held out for a third successive win.
"I am very, very pleased," manager Jackett said. "To some degree it has been a tough season, which we finished with a good run of form and a good run of results.
"We are very pleased rather to do it sooner rather than later. We have had some form off the back of Andy Keogh and Kane's partnership.
"It has been a good partnership up front for us and has given us a threat all of the time, which at different stages of the season we haven't had."
