Kenny Jackett has admitted that Millwall must stop dropping points if they are to secure promotion to the Championship.
The Lions are currently sixth in the League One table following Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Tranmere, when James Henry cancelled out Billy Paynter's opener.
Millwall have two games in hand on many of the other teams in the division but Jackett concedes it was disappointing not to beat Tranmere.
He told skysports.com: "It was two points dropped and you are always looking to win your home games.
"Obviously we didn't last night and it looked for a long time like we wouldn't get anything from it, but James Henry's brilliant goal got us a point."
Henry is on loan from Championship side Reading and Jackett is not sure what to expect from the talented youngster.
He said: "He's only been here for a short amount of time. It's only a month's loan at the moment, but we will have a look at what happens.
"He is a very good winger, who is capable of putting a good cross in and obviously his goal was an excellent strike."
Millwall's next two games are against sides fighting for points towards the bottom of the table.
They host Brighton at the weekend and then Cheltenham next Tuesday, but Jackett will not be taking any chances.
"We approach every game the same. It's a tough league and we don't necessarily look at each team's position, as we know they are all capable of producing good performances," he explained.
"But we do need to start winning again to cement our good position."
