Kenny's comment

'I felt we had the better of the chances'

Kenny Jackett was left wondering what might have been after watching his Millwall side come within a whisker of grabbing all three points against Ipswich Town on Monday.
Shane Lowry smacked the woodwork and Jermaine Easter twice went close as The Lions failed to grab the all-important winner against Mick McCarthy's men.
Bizarrely, such is the nature of the Championship this season, despite picking up four points over the Easter period and moving up the table, The Lions are now actually closer to the relegation zone than before.
"Since the FA Cup Quarter Final we've won two games and drawn one," said Kenny, "but the gap has closed at the bottom over this Bank Holiday weekend.
I felt that against Ipswich we generally lacked width. Early in the game, I felt that even though we passed the ball well, we lacked players that could go past people.
I probably should have introduced Liam Feeney earlier on because he did have a positive effect when he came on.
I felt that we had the better of the chances - Ipswich had a couple of opportunities but we had more that were clear-cut.
Looking at our squad, we’ve got James Henry and Chris Taylor who are very capable of beating a man, putting good balls into the box and stretching sides who were unavailable.
If there’s any criticism of us we lacked width and we really needed it."
