Preview: Bolton vs. Millwall

JIMMY Abdou will replace Shaun Derry in Millwall's midfield against Bolton.

Abdou, available again after serving a one-match ban, comes in for ex-QPR loanee Derry, who left the Lions this week to become the new Notts County manager.

New signing Justin Hoyte is in the travelling squad, as are Richard Chaplow and Lee Martin after groin and hip problems respectively.



Mark Beevers returned from a knee injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly victory over Gillingham in midweek, but it remains to be seen whether he will be risked.

Scott Malone (knee) will be out for around a month, so Shane Lowry will start at left back.

Bolton will be without midfielder Darren Pratley (back) but Andre Mortiz (illness) and Craig Davies (hamstring) are fit again.

        Absolutely nothing which is why we have to score more goals to compensate for sh"t refs every game.

      @willownix: Absolutely, more f*****g goals leaked. We are still a poor side. Totally inconsistent, with the squad of players we have we should be doing a lot better. I do feel it is a management problem.

    There is something very wrong and I am loathe to blame otherwise good players, I question the tactics, and as much as I am willing to back SL, there is still a big problem up front,the constant chopping and changing of the forward line how can players settle? Very disappointed indeed, not watching Football tonight. Totally p****d off.

      @Peckhamlad: The reason the forward line keeps chopping and changing is the bloody unnecessary injuries we keep picking up in training, ffs look after our key players and not kick lumps out of them.

    How do we all feel about lomas so far? I dont want lomss ouy boo brigade answers but genuine feelings... are we any worse off without jackett? How long and how much does lomas need to create his team? I'd argue 3 good draws but one poor defeat in the last four? Onwardss and upwards COYL

      @grant_bazza88: I believe, but of course cannot prove if Jackett had been given this squad of players he would be rubbing his hands with delight. Jackett did a good job for us, perhaps the question be asked wasnt he given the budget SL received. Look at the job he is doing at Wolves.

    Three points from the last 18, six games without a win, 17 goals conceded. Apparently we were the better side today, means nothing. No doubt the usual suspects on here will blame the ref and find a new scapegoat on the pitch as Dunney didn't play. Morison was probably not trying for the 15 minutes he got and Trotter probably didn't win enough headers.
    Barnsley now a massive game for Lomas.

      @lion.ie: You cannot really compare last season with this season because with each new season you have another 3 teams on parachute payments which makes it that bit more difficult for the teams that have never had access to such unfair payments.
      Lomas may have been handed more money than Kenny but it is peanuts when you look at what all the ex-prem sides have been given.
      When Palace come back down at the end of the season they will be a stronger side in the following campaign.

        @Sealion: Utter nonsense, Yeovil, Bournemouth, Ipswich, Huddersfield, Derby have all beat us without parachute payments. Half the teams in the top half have no parachute payment.
        We are small fry and we over achieved with a limited squad under Jackett.
        Now we are under achieving with a far less limited squad under Lomas.
