Lions look for home comfort

Kenny Jackett has warned his players to focus fully on tonight's Championship game against Wolves and forget Sunday's FA Cup Quarter Final for now as his team look to address a poor run of form in the league.
Millwall's hopes of staying in touch with the Play-Off pack have slowed down following a run that has seen the team win two of their last 13 Championship starts, whilst winning all three FA Cup ties.
And whilst sixth-placed Brighton are 11 points clear of the mid-table Lions, Jackett's side have an eight point cushion with the bottom three.
Wolves themselves are second from bottom having not won in 13 games, nine of which have come under the guidance of new manager Dean Saunders.
A victory for the Molineux outfit this evening would reduce the gap to five points - and Lions boss Kenny is determined to prevent that happening.
"It is vital for us to rediscover our form here in the League, particularly after the poor performance against Peterborough last time out," said Kenny.
"Wolves are fighting for their lives who have quality players in their ranks capable of causing us problems if we are not at the top of our game.
We can't afford to get sucked into a into a dog fight at the bottom and that's very much on my mind.
We have to address that tonight and we want to be going into the Cup game playing well.
I have said to the players that we have to focus very quickly on getting results at home. Getting results at home in such a big week for the club is key."
