MILLWALL'S fate will be decided on the final day of the season after they were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace in a full-blooded South London derby.
The Lions produced a battling, resilient performance against the Eagles but, as has often been the case, they were found wanting in the final third and a draw was ultimately a fair result.
They now travel to Derby County on Saturday knowing that a point would probably be enough to keep them up, although safety could be confirmed by the virtue of other results.
Millwall made five changes following their loss to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, with Danny Shittu and Shane Lowry returning at the expense of Adam Smith and Karleigh Osborne in defence.
Josh Wright and Liam Feeney replaced George Saville and Jimmy Abdou in midfield, while Irishman Andy Keogh took the place of Nathan Tyson up front.
The opening five minutes were predictably tense and Sean St Ledger shot tamely wide from just outside in the area with the first half-chance of the game.
But the visitors soon demonstrated their counter-attacking threat when wide man Yannick Bolasie drove towards the Lions' back four before turning St Ledger inside-out, but his delivery was poor.
Millwall then had two penalty shouts turned down, firstly when Feeney's cross seemed to bounce up and hit the arm of Damien Delaney, moments before Shaun Batt was pushed to the ground.
Batt was involved once more when he collected James Henry's short corner, drove into the area before unleashing a curling shot towards goal but it was cleared by Daniel Gabbidon.
Palace's main man, Wilfried Zaha, almost broke the deadlock when he waltzed down the left before cutting inside, but his tame shot zipped into the side-netting.
Midway through the first period, Keogh lofted a clever pass into the path of Wright, who hit the ball on the half-volley but saw his shot drift just wide.
Palace could have opened the scoring in the 40th minute when 30-goal frontman Glenn Murray latched onto Owen Garvan's precise through-ball, but David Forde was there to collect at his feet.
With half-time approaching, Manchester United loanee Zaha zig-zagged his way through the Lions defence but chipped well over the bar.
Batt went close to opening the scoring five minutes after the restart but Feeney's tantalising cross was just too high for him, before Keogh's heavy touch spurned a promising opening.
Palace had a penalty shout turned down when Murray appeared to be bundled over in the box. As play continued, the tricky Zaha shimmied into a dangerous area but his cross was cleared by Shittu.
The visitors had another chance moments later when a quick Dean Moxey throw in fell to Bolasie, whose thunderous volley was palmed brilliantly away by Forde and out for a corner.
With the game finely balanced heading into the final 20 minutes, Millwall almost nudged themselves in front when Feeney fizzed a cross in for Batt, but Julian Speroni was there to parry.
Shittu's deep free-kick fell kindly for Woolford inside the box, but his shot was blocked before being hacked away. At the other end, Delaney sliced well over from six-yards out after a corner.
The closing stage were frantic at times with Feeney and Zaha both threatening towards the end, but neither team could produce a moment of quality to win the match.
