Preview: Derby County vs. Millwall

MIDFIELDER James Henry will be missing for Millwall as their quest for survival goes down to the last day of the Championship season at Pride Park.

Henry sustained a grade one hamstring tear during Tuesday’s draw against Crystal Palace, forcing him off early in the first-half, and he will sit out the trip to Derby County.

Liam Trotter should be involved again after recovering from a knee problem in time to make a late substitute appearance against the Eagles in midweek.



The Lions are also boosted by the return of loanee Jermaine Easter, who returns for the final game of his scheduled loan spell from Palace, having been ineligible to face his parent club.

Winger Chris Taylor (groin) remains sidelined whilst both Rob Hulse and Dany N’Guessan will not be included in the match-day squad.

Derby stalwart Gareth Roberts is set for his final appearance for the Rams after the club confirmed he would not be offered a new contract.

Manager Nigel Clough is able to call upon midfield duo Paul Coutts (thigh) and Will Hendrick (groin) after the midfield duo recovered from minor injuries.

    QUOTE FROM THE BBC WEBSITE-"Millwall will be relegated if they lose at Derby and Barnsley and Peterborough win and Sheffield Wednesday avoid defeat. But they are safe if they do not lose as they would finish above either Barnsley or Huddersfield".
    I'd have that up in our dressing room at Derby tomorrow.
    If that's not motivation then you're in the wrong business and shouldn't be professional footballers. Let others cry into their beers tomorrow. I want to raise my glass with a glint in my eye and a smile on my face.
    Cheers!

      One more game, I have got to try and hold it together I can't believe the effect 90 mins of football will have on me, win or draw and I will be over the the moon, lose and the results go against us, the depths of despair. I feel my life has been on hold for the last 3 months just living from Tues to Sat what a sad b****** I have become. The divorce papers arrived yesterday. Anyway enough of all that tosh COYL you can do it go and give me my life back lol.

      @westlion: Barnsley can only get 57 pts and have a crap goal diff, so if we draw and they win we should stay up unless we get caned and they get a bagfull.

      Then Huddersfield get relegated. They're minus 10 goals on the difference with us.

    Just seen the starting eleven for today. Have to say that given what's available it's the strongest we could field.
    Trotter with Wright. About bloody time!!
