Football - Lions should have had penalty - Jackett

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett had no complaints over the penalties awarded to Leeds at Elland Road but claimed the Lions should have had a spot-kick of their own in the 1-0 defeat.

Stephen Warnock drilled a spot-kick down the centre of David Forde's goal, with the goalkeeper unable to replicate the first-half penalty save he had made from McCormack.

Jackett felt his side should have had their own spot-kick, though, and said: "My first impressions are that we couldn't complain about either of Leeds' penalties but I felt we had a clear-cut penalty when Danny Shittu headed the ball down, Sam Byram had his hand by the side of his body and clearly handled it as the ball was going through to my centre-forward, so I thought the referee got that call wrong.

"David Forde made a good save from the first penalty and he is in top form at present.

"We had big chances but Paddy Kenny pulled off two very good saves for them and Shane Lowry hooked one over from about seven yards, so we were unfortunate to come away with nothing."
