Millwall on the up, says Rabbatts

Lions boss Kenny Jackett has already had plenty to celebrate this season

Millwall's Heather Rabbatts says the club are well prepared for the future whatever happens in Sunday's League One play-off final against Scunthorpe.

Lions fans have already snapped up 38,000 tickets for the Wembley trip.

And deputy chairman Rabbatts said: "We're in the best possible state to go to Wembley then we'll see where we are.

"Kenny Jackett has been a remarkable manager. He has sought from the outset to build a winning team," Rabbatts told BBC London 94.9.

"It was absolutely evident by the spirit and the success we had, particularly at Elland Road. And he will want to take that unit forward."

In the wake of beating Leeds United 2-1 on aggregate in last week's play-off semi-final, Millwall agreed a fee to make Stevenage captain Steve Morison their first signing of the summer.

And although Jackett otherwise looks set to work with what he has, Rabbatts insists that the door is always open to the manager to discuss other targets.

"We will support Kenny when he comes to talk to us but, at the moment, I know he's very clear about this team and taking this team forward.

"And the chairman's commitment to supporting Millwall has been absolutely crucial."
