Match Preview

Baker worry for Lions Millwall defender Nathan Baker is a major doubt for the south London derby against Crystal Palace. The Aston Villa loanee limped out of the 1-0 Boxing Day win over Portsmouth with a knee injury and is unlikely to figure. Alan Dunne came on to replace Baker but boss Kenny Jackett has since recalled Tony Craig, a natural left-back, from his loan spell at Leyton Orient and he could be pitched in from the start against his former club. There will also be a change in midfield after Brian Howard's three-month loan spell from Reading came to an end. Goalkeeper David Forde (thigh) is almost fit but with Steve Mildenhall performing well there is no need to rush him back. Defender Jordan Stewart (groin) and midfielder Tamika Mkandawire (knee) are still out. Mile Jedinak returns to the Crystal Palace squad. The Australia international sat out the 2-0 Boxing Day defeat at leaders Southampton through suspension after collecting five yellow cards. Fellow midfielder Darren Ambrose and striker Chris Martin are also pushing for returns to the starting line-up after they were on the bench at St Mary's. Centre-half Dekel Keinan is back in training after a twisted ankle but full-back Dean Moxey remains a doubt with the knee injury he suffered at Manchester United in the Carling Cup last month. Defender Lee Hills (knee) and midfield duo Jonathan Williams (broken leg) and Alex Marrow (ankle) are long-term absentees for the Eagles.

Match Report

Easter winner tames Lions Jermaine Easter's goal ensured Crystal Palace turned the tables on their south London rivals Millwall. The striker's fifth of the season proved enough to secure the derby-day spoils for Palace, a year after they hit rock bottom at the same ground. Last New Year's Day, Palace sacked their manager George Burley after a 3-0 defeat by the Lions left them deep in relegation trouble. Millwall were, at the time, flying high and dreaming of an unlikely bid for promotion to the top flight. But fast-forward a year and they now find themselves hovering above the drop zone while Palace, reinvigorated under Dougie Freedman, are back in the play-off mix. The Eagles also have a Carling Cup semi-final against Cardiff to look forward to later this month, but they proved they have not taken their eye off the ball in the npower Championship with a hard-earned win - their first at The Den since 1996. The goal came after 23 minutes of typically scrappy derby action, from a slick move started by Wilfried Zaha. Palace's teenage starlet momentarily escaped the clutches of his tactile marker Tony Craig and played a clever ball inside to Chris Martin. Norwich loanee Martin spotted Darren Ambrose's dart into the area, played a perfect through-ball to the midfielder's feet and his first-time cross was prodded in by Easter. The visitors could have made it two on the half-hour when Ambrose's corner fell to Mile Jedinak at the far post but his shot was tipped over by Steve Mildenhall. And moments later Millwall missed a gilt-edged chance to equalise when Dany N'Guessan met Hamer Bouazza's cross two yards from goal but somehow planted his header into the ground, high and wide. Palace keeper Lewis Price then foiled Liam Trotter but Mildenhall was the busier keeper at the end of the first half, keeping out Ambrose's free-kick and Martin's follow-up and then denying Zaha low down. After the break Trotter was inches too high with a header from Bouazza's corner and the midfielder also blazed over from the edge of the area. The Lions thought they had equalised with 15 minutes to go through their skipper Paul Robinson. But Palace are a far more resolute bunch than the one that showed up a year ago, and Robinson's header was nodded clear from under the crossbar by Jonathan Parr to ensure the Eagles made the short trip home with all three points. end
