Crystal Palace V Millwall - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

Wright available for London derby David Wright is back in Crystal Palace's squad for the npower Championship derby showdown with Millwall. The 32-year-old has been on loan at League Two high-flyers Gillingham for the past month but will now look to win back his place in the Eagles line-up. Fellow midfielder Jon Williams will definitely miss the clash after picking up a groin injury. The youngster suffered the setback just 10 minutes after coming off the bench in the 4-3 victory over Burnley and is likely to miss the next two games. Striker David Goodwillie has returned to Blackburn after cutting his loan spell short, with assistant boss Lennie Lawrence admitting the Scot struggled to settle in London. Defender Paddy McCarthy remains sidelined with a groin injury. Shane Lowry is available again after suspension as Millwall make the short trip. The midfielder picked up his fifth booking of the season in the 1-1 draw at Bristol City earlier this month and subsequently missed the 2-1 victory over Bolton last time out. Also back for the Lions is defender Karleigh Osborne, who has recovered from the calf injury that kept him out of the last three matches. Jimmy Abdou is expected to shake off an ankle knock but Andy Keogh will be checked over after suffering concussion. Experienced defender Paul Robinson continues to miss out with a pelvis injury. Millwall are unbeaten in their last four visits to Selhurst Park, having conceded just one goal in that run.
