Millwall defender Alan Dunne says that Kenny Jackett has gotten the team motivated ahead of their FA Cup semi-final.

Millwall's Alan Dunne has revealed that manager Kenny Jackett has fired the team up ahead of this weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic.

The Lions lost 2-1 to Sheffield Wednesday in the league mid-week, but the defender believes that the dressing down they received from their boss afterwards has done them good.

"It might not do us any harm getting beaten and getting a rollicking," Sky Sports News quotes Dunne as saying.

"Sometimes you get complacent. If we had won we might have got complacent going into Saturday. Getting beaten, we had a rollicking off the manager and it will fire a few of us up for Saturday. That's important."

Millwall will clash with Wigan at Wembley Stadium on Saturday with a place in the final at stake.
