Lions scoop Performance of the Week Award
Millwall have been rewarded for their fantastic 2-0 win at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday by securing a second F&C Investments Performance of the Week award this month.
Just three weeks ago The Lions' 4-1 success at Nottingham Forest was recognised by the League Managers Association five-man panel - and on this occasion the quintet of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that this week, the F&C Investments Performance of the Week Award should go to Millwall following their excellent result at Blackburn.
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett will receive a specially engraved crystal football in a presentation to commemorate the award.
The Lions climbed into a play-off place after victory at Blackburn to cap a fine week as Jackett’s side followed up this victory with a midweek win at Molineux.
Wood opening the scoring with a tremendous 25-yard strike and James Henry later sealed the visitor’s fifth win in six games.
After the match, Jackett praised his side’s performance and hailed his striker Chris Wood:
"He is doing very well and in a rich vein of form but I'm sure he'd be the first one to say that the partners he's had have been very good as well. Andy Keogh and Darius Henderson have really helped him out a lot.
Obviously Chris is here until Christmas and it's an obvious one that we'd like it further.
He's done very well for us and it is an obvious thing to say if we could get him at Millwall of course we would."
