Milwall boss Kenny Jackett was full of praise for Darius Henderson who scored two goals in the Lions 3-0 win over Coventry City on Tuesday night.

Speaking to the Press Association, Jackett whose side won their third consecutive match said; "Darius has made a great start to his Millwall career, he is in great form at the moment and has played very well for us so far.

"Every signing is a gamble and finding centre-forwards for the Championship is a big call. It is very tough and I would agree it was a risk.

"When I met him I was convinced he wanted to come back down south for family reasons and I felt that would help and he would be a lot more settled.

"He has given us a presence and a quality because he can bring people into play as well and when you get the ball in the box he is a threat.

"He occupies defenders, he has got some presence and for us this season he has been a big player and he finished well again. The combination of Darius and Jay Simpson has been a good one and has looked a threat."
