King Henry earns Jackett's praise

Last updated : 18 February 2009 By The Merry Lion

On loan winger James Henry picked the perfect moment to open his account for The Lions by striking a spectacular 30-year drive to give Millwall a share of the points with Swindon town deep into injury time.

It was a goal that did not deserve to be part of a lacklustre performance served up by The Lions last night but manager Kenny Jackett knows he has work to do ahead of Saturday's clash against Brighton & Hove Albion - although he did have a word of praise for his new signing.

"I thought we were low key," said the Millwall boss after the game. "The crowd were frustrated, and it looked like it wasn't going to happen for us, but you won't see a better goal than Henry's this season.

"He was excellent, his delivery was very good, but we needed someone to attack those crosses, and we didn't have that.

"No disrespect to Swindon, but this was a winnable game, and we didn't get out of low gear for most of the game."
