Millwall boss Jackett hails Aston Villa loanees after Palace draw

The Lions made five changes with Nathan Baker, Shane Lowry, John Marquis, Scott Barron and Steve Mildenhall coming into the side
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett was pleased with the players that came into the side and won a point in a challenging London derby with Crystal Palace, including Aston Villa loanees Nathan Baker and Shane Lowry who made their debuts for the Lions.
The Lions made five changes to the side that lost to Bristol City with Nathan Baker, Shane Lowry, John Marquis, Scott Barron and Steve Mildenhall coming into the side.
Jackett was pleased that, despite the multiple changes, the south London club were able to take a draw back with them to The Den.
“Baker, Lowry, Marquis, Barron and Mildenhall went into the side and made good impressions,” he said.
“We made quite a number of changes, and I think they give us something to base things on. If we can build on that and continue with those types of performances then I think we’ll get results.”
Glenn Murray had the Eagles’ best chance from the penalty spot but he completely missed the target, although Jackett was unhappy with the decision.
“I didn’t think it was a penalty – that and the subsequent booking, (though) I don’t know whether it was for protesting,” he added.
“I felt the referee was making up for an earlier incident, which was more of a penalty than the one he gave.”
