“We should have won the game but lacked a bit of quality in that final action, it doesn’t seem to be quite there at the moment,” said the Lions manager.
Millwall face Swansea on Tuesday before travelling the short distance to South London rivals Charlton Athletic on Friday.
Rowett said: “We are at a point where we need to find momentum.
“We need a big week – we certainly need to go and win on Tuesday.If we win on Tuesday we at least give ourselves an opportunity. If we don’t win on Tuesday I think it is going to be tough.”
It was the end product that let Millwall down today.
“We had moments, not just good chances because we had two cleared off the line and we hit the bar,” said Rowett. “But we had chances to put someone in, a really simple pass but we overhit it or over-complicated it. That’s the frustration.”
