Millwall boss Jackett not complaining about added time

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett had no complaints about the time added on at the end of Tuesday's game at Carrow Road – during which Henri Lansbury scored City's winner.

Referee Pat Miller had played more than the minimum three minutes displayed by the fourth official when Lansbury struck, but Jackett, who had made a substitution in stoppage time when he replaced James Henry with Danny Schofield, said it was not an issue.

He said: 'There is no issue about the time for me. People have said it was over the three minutes.

'I wasn't necessarily concentrating on the time. I was concentrating on the game and what was going on on the pitch.

'I leave the timing to other people.

'I'm sure when I watch the DVD, now that you've said it, I will time it. The one thing it won't do, it won't change it.'

He did, however, have one observation not uncommon among opposing managers this season.

'I've got to say Grant Holt gets more free-kicks than anybody I've ever seen, particularly here,' he said.

'But Norwich keep going, their substitutes are very good and they've clawed two goals back on us and what we have to do now is move on very, very quickly.

'We've played with good spirit and at times a lot of quality as well.

'We feel we want to keep that spirit and capitalise on that quality because we caused them a lot of problems tonight.

'It's a big disappointment. I felt we had enough of the ball when we were 1-0 up in good situations which we gave away cheaply.

'We needed more belief that we could have gone on and got a second goal because it looked like we needed it.'
