MILLWALL kicked off their pre-season campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Crawley Town at the Broadfield Stadium.
22 different Lions players were given valuable match action as goals from Jermaine Easter and Dany N'Guessan saw the Lions brush past the League One side.
Former Reading defender Nicky Shorey, one of three free agents currently training with Millwall, played the opening 45 minutes at left-back, with Shane Lowry absent through a quad injury.
Steve Lomas partnered Steve Morison and Easter up front in a 4-4-2 formation, with new signing Lee Martin playing on the left side of midfield.
The Lions carved out an early half-chance when Shorey stabbed the ball through to Easter on the byline, but the striker's cut-back was too deep for the onrushing James Henry.
But the visitors broke the deadlock when Martin cut infield and whipped an inswinging cross onto the head of Easter, who glanced the ball in the far corner.
In the 32nd minute, Alan Dunne flashed a header just wide from Shorey's corner but chances were at a premium for both sides.
Crawley's best opportunity of the opening half came when left-back Mat Sadler advanced to the edge of the area and blazed narrowly over the bar.
Lomas made 11 substitutions at half-time, with John Paintsil and Lee Croft both given a chance to impress, whilst club captain Paul Robinson made his first appearance since September after a long injury lay-off.
After John Marquis had charged down goalkeeper Paul Jones' clearance, the loose ball fell to N'Guessan, who skipped past one challenge but then took a heavy touch and Jones was able to reclaim possession.
Reds striker Jamie Proctor almost drew the home side level when he weaved his way into a shooting position 20 yards out, but he fired over.
Marquis had two efforts on goal in quick succession at the other end; first stinging the palms of replacement 'keeper Jonathan Maddison from a tight angle, before heading wide from Scott Malone's cross.
Billy Clarke tested new Lions stopper Stephen Bywater for the first time with a tame strike that the former Sheffield Wednesday man held onto with ease in the 70th minute.
But it was soon 2-0 when Marquis fed Feeney, who dug out the perfect cross for N'Guessan to head in at the far post from little more than a yard out.
Josh Wright nearly added a spectacular third goal when he caught hold of a sweet half-volley on the edge of the area that Maddison did well to divert over his bar.
N'Guessan's late effort was saved as Millwall were forced to settle for just the two goals.
Millwall first-half: Forde, Dunne, Shorey, Shittu, Abdou, Easter, Morison, Martin, Henry, Smith, Osborne.
Millwall second-half: Bywater, Wright, Robinson, Feeney, Marquis, Woolford, Paintsil, Croft, Malone, Beevers, N'Guessan.
