KENNY Jackett admits he he has begun planning for the future after watching his side edge closer to Championship survival with a thumping 3-0 victory at Doncaster on Tuesday night.

Millwall continued their recent good form away from home with a much-deserved victory at the Keepmoat Stadium, courtesy of goals from Andy Keogh, Harry Kane and Darius Henderson.

And while Jackett insisted afterwards his focus remains on avoiding relegation, he conceded he already has one eye on next season.

“It was a very good win and it pushes Doncaster further away from us with one less game to go,” he told the club’s official website.

“We’ve got to be able to follow that up now because we’ve done this a few times away from home and then not backed it up with another win. We have a great chance to do that on Saturday against Leeds United.

“There is a nice gap between us and the bottom three and that’s first and foremost for us at the moment.

“But we’re also looking for some positives to finish the season on – that’s secondary to scrapping and staying up, but I do think the squad is coming along nicely with a good balance of attitude and ability.

“I’m looking to shape things so that we will have some optimism going into next year.”
