Championship: Millwall 0 Crystal Palace 0

By Football News



Crystal Palace remain well-placed to claim a Championship playoff spot after a 0-0 draw at Millwall on Tuesday.

Ian Holloway's side have stuttered late in the campaign and their point at The Den puts them two points clear of seventh-placed Nottingham Forest ahead of the final day of the regular season.

Palace are winless in nine outings and face relegation-threatened Peterborough United on Saturday, while Millwall are fighting for survival.

Millwall, sitting 19th and two points clear of Barnsley, travel to Derby County, with a point likely to be enough to keep them up.

Josh Wright went close for the hosts early on against Palace, but a Millwall side which has scored a league-worst 24 goals at home rarely looked likely to score.

With Manchester United-bound attacker Wilfried Zaha looking dangerous, Palace were the more threatening but lacked composure.

The visitors' best chance fell to Yannick Bolasie on the hour-mark, but his powerful drive was tipped over by David Forde as the encounter ended in a dull draw.
