Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's Championship meeting between London rivals Millwall and Crystal Palace.

Tuesday night's meeting between these two London clubs will see both of them requiring the three points for very different reasons.

A win for hosting Millwall will preserve their status as a Championship club for at least another season, while a Crystal Palace victory will book their spot in the upcoming playoffs as they seek a return to the Premier League under Ian Holloway.

A draw will leave the duo needing to pick up positive results on the final day of the campaign to reach their respective targets.

The omens are not too positive for Millwall, who along with Charlton Athletic, have picked up just 27 points at home this season. No team in the division has picked up fewer points in front of their own supporters than the Lions. Meanwhile, visiting Palace have collected six wins and six draws from 22 outings on the road.

Palace boss Holloway has been tipped to name a positive starting lineup at The Den, with Wilfried Zaha, Glenn Murray, Scott Dobbie and Aaron Wilbraham all pushing for a place.

Goals have been hard to come by for Millwall of late, which may earn both Andy Keogh and John Marquis recalls to the team.
