Jackett relief after weighing up Whites' class
KENNY Jackett was happy to claim a point at the Reebok on Saturday after aiming some envious glances at the Wanderers bench.
The Millwall boss praised the effort his Lions had showed over 90 minutes but was worried that the extra quality available to Dougie Freedman was going to make the difference in the closing stages of the game.
“It was very hard earned and probably the best start we’ve had for a little while – we really took the game to Bolton,” he said.
“But we were put under a lot of pressure, particularly at the start of the second half.
“Then when they are throwing on the likes of Marvin Sordell at £3million – they have got people who can really do something on the bench.
“So I am very pleased with my side, even if we didn’t do enough to get any more than a point.
“Four points out of six against Bolton this season represents good progress for us.”
Jackett, pictured, also saluted Dany N’Guessan, whose goal-line clearance from Kevin Davies’s late header secured the result for the Londoners.
“For a centre-forward he covered the line really well,” the Lions’ manager said.
“That was the kind of effort we put in. I was pleased with the point because it was a real battle in that second half.”
