LIONS manager Gary Rowett has admitted the club will be focusing on "forward areas" in the upcoming transfer window.

Millwall battled to a 9th placed finish in the Championship last season, and still had a chance of reaching the play-offs on the final day of the season.

One area that let the club down in the chase for promotion was the number of goals scored in the season. Millwall netted 53 times, ten less than Luton Town in 6th place.

If the Lions want to continue to challenge for promotion they will have to improve in front of goal, especially as Jed Wallace is still set to leave the club once his contract expires.

Rowett told London News Online: “The forward areas are obvious, we’re losing goals, quality and numbers.

“That is probably our main focus, recruitment-wise.

“Which is why it is such a big summer.

“Forwards, and forward quality is not easy to find at the top end of the Championship – because the reality is that is where we are.

“That is going to be a challenge, that is going to be tough to do.”
