Crystal Palace are light in attack ahead of the south London derby showdown, with Everton loanee James Vaughan still suspended plus Pablo Counago (hamstring) and Jon Obika (calf) both struggling with injuries.

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 ths suspended duo Alan Dunne and Liam Trotter for the trip.

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.
