Preview: Millwall vs. Crystal Palace

MILLWALL are boosted by the return of Danny Shittu and Shane Lowry ahead of their crucial South London derby against Crystal Palace at The Den on Tuesday.

Shittu and Lowry are available again after suspension and the defensive duo will go straight into the starting line up as the Lions looking to secure their Championship status with a victory.

Midfielders Liam Trotter (knee) and Chris Taylor (groin) remain sidelined and they look increasingly unlikely to play any further part in the current campaign.



Eagles loanee Jermaine Easter is unable to play against his parent club and winger Dany N'Guessan remains doubtful with a knee injury, although he could make the bench.

Andy Keogh and John Marquis are pushing for starts, with manager Kenny Jackett expected to play with two strikers, but Rob Hulse will not be included in the squad.

Liam Feeney could be recalled to the side after a solid cameo against Nottingham Forest.



Midfielders Owen Garvan and Jonny Williams are both set to start for Palace after recently returning from injuries.

Garvan and Williams (both knee) made substitute appearances in the Eagles' 1-1 draw at Blackburn on Saturday. Paddy McCarthy (groin) and Jon Parr (ankle) are out.

      @Basingstokelion: he may not be, but he will give 110% for us, more than some recent forwards I could mention (Hulse), and he may just nick a goal. We need the passion tonight....COYL!

    I have a bad feeling about this one, sorry chappingtons but I can't lie.

    Let's hope I am wrong.
