Big challenge ahead

Kenny on tough Reebok test

The Championship clash is the club’s first ever game at the Reebok Stadium, and it’s one Kenny has been excited about.
Lions boss Kenny Jackett admits that his team will have to be at their best to get a result against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
"These are fantastic games - ones we should look forward to - and it’s a big challenge," he said.
"If we can get our game right we have to give them problems and whilst we respect every opponent, we don’t look at them too much. We need to start well, give the opposition a game and cause them problems."
Bolton's indifferent start to the season led to the dismissal of Owen Coyle with The Lions' 2-1 victory at The Den in October his last in charge. However, with Dougie Freedman now in the hot seat, they go into the game in 16th - eight points off of Millwall and a Play-Off position, but Kenny is under no illusions as to the task at hand.
"Bolton have good wide men and strength right the way through the side. They've just signed Craig Davies to add to the likes of Ngog, Kevin Davies and Sordell, so they have some firepower. The balance of their squad is good and they probably have two good players in every position."
