Millwall boss Kenny Jackett blames referee Gavin Ward for his side's loss to Blacburn Rovers after he awarded a late penalty to Gary Bowyer's side.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has hit out at referee Gavin Ward's decision to award Blackburn Rovers a penalty in their 2-1 defeat at The Den.

Jordan Rhodes netted the spot kick to give Gary Bowyer's side a crucial win in their fight against the drop from the Championship, much to the fury of Jackett.

"That decision has cost us," Jackett told reporters. "I've just seen it again and it looked like a soft decision, in my opinion the referee got it wrong, it didn't look like there was any contact.

"I was looking for the refereeing team to make the right call as it looked soft at the time, and having seen it again it was."

Following the defeat Millwall are 19th in the Championship, just four points clear of the relegation zone.
