Lions skipper praised after win over Rovers

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett piled the praise on captain Liam Trotter following the Lions' 3-2 win over Doncaster. Trotter bagged a double at the Den, although Darius Henderson's goal decided the game with Billy Sharp scoring twice for the visitors. Jackett was thrilled with Trotter's application since joining the club and he is predicting a bright future for the 23-year-old midfielder.

Delighted

"I was delighted with Liam's performance and he is continuing to develop so he is only going to get better," said Jackett. "Since he joined us from Ipswich he has continued to work hard and continued to develop his game and he came up with two vital goals for us. "He has the armband and he leads by example and does his talking on the pitch like a good captain should. "And he is still a young lad in his early 20s so there are plenty more performances like this one to come, I am sure of that. "If he keeps working hard and he keeps doing what he is doing then he has a very bright future ahead of him. "And although we made it a close-run thing at the end and tighter than it perhaps should have been, it was a first-class result for us first and foremost and that is the most important thing."
Effort
Dean Saunders was pleased with Rovers' effort despite losing, stating he felt the South Yorkshire side created enough chances to win the game. "We are obviously disappointed to lose the game but I thought we played well and I am delighted with the effort my guys showed," said Saunders. "We had enough chances to win the game and I thought we played really well, but the goals we gave away were from terrible mistakes and it is hard to eradicate them really. "Every one of them kept going right until the end and we have all seen those games end up a draw. "And the main thing is that my players never packed it in. That is key because things will turn around and we will win games, but only if they have the drive and determination. "If they had packed in I would have been worried but they didn't, so we are getting there."
