Jackett sets 50-point target

Thu, 22 Mar 11:00:50 2012

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett will not rest easy until his side have hit the magic 50-point mark.

The Lions eased their relegation fears with a 3-0 win over fellow strugglers Doncaster on Tuesday night and are now eight points clear of the drop zone ahead of Saturday's visit of Leeds.

"It does keep that gap but we have eight games left and we are going to need to get to 50 points still," said Jackett.

"I am certain of that and that is our aim - we need 10 points from these last eight games to get to 50 and our number one priority is staying up.

"After that our second priority is to finish the season strongly with some optimism for next year."

Millwall have not won at home in the league since Boxing Day, and Jackett added: "Our performance level has been pretty good and away from home we have got some very good results since the turn of the year. Our problems results-wise have really been at home but we hope to address that on Saturday."
