Jackett cools Hornets link

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has distanced himself from reports suggesting he is wanted by former club Watford. The 46-year-old ex-Hornets midfielder has been linked with the vacancy at Vicarage Road following the departure of Adrian Boothroyd earlier in the week. Jackett began his managerial career with a brief season in charge of Watford during the 1996-97 campaign before being demoted to assistant manager following one unsuccessful season in League One. But the former Swansea City boss has suggested his future remains with the Lions, who he has guided to third place in the League One table this season. "There's always speculation about managers, it's part of football," Jackett told the club's official website. "From my own point of view I try very hard to ignore it and make sure I do my job. "I'm planning both for the short term, which is our game against Chester on Saturday which I want to win, and for the long term, which is very exciting for Millwall. "My focus is on this club and the job here. I'm very happy at the club - the year I've spent at Millwall has gone very quickly."
