Crystal Palace Vs Millwall, Sat 16 Oct 2010

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace are light in attack ahead of the south London derby showdown with Millwall.

Everton loanee James Vaughan is still suspended while Pablo Counago (hamstring) and Jon Obika (calf) are struggling with injuries.

Boss George Burley's attempts to bring in another striker on loan this week came to nothing so 17-year-old Wilfried Zaha and Calvin Andrew, who has scored three goals in two years, are his only options.

Burley is also still missing key midfield duo Darren Ambrose (leg) and Neil Danns (knee) as well as full-backs David Wright (calf) and Lee Hills and winger Sean Scannell (both knee).

But defenders Adam Barrett (foot), Claude Davis (back) and Anthony Gardner (ankle) are in line to return.

Millwall are without Alan Dunne and Liam Trotter for the trip.

Defender Dunne sits out with a one-match ban while midfielder Trotter serves the last of his three-game suspension.

Jack Smith will be in contention to replace Dunne at right-back, but he is struggling with a calf problem so Tamika Mkandawire, who has been playing in midfield in Trotter's absence, could drop back.

Preston loanee Darren Carter is fit after an ankle injury and may start in central midfield.

Striker Kevin Lisbie missed the 1-1 draw with Burnley a fortnight ago with a knee injury but is available again along with John Marquis (wrist) and Andrew Frampton (ankle).

Forward Shaun Batt remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
