4:55pm

All over here. 2-1 Millwall. Dreadful result.

4:51pm

Great finish by the Millwall man but no pressure on the shot...

4:50pm

Good grief. Chungy coming on for Spearing.

4:49pm

GOAL! Henderson 2-1 Millwall

4:47pm

Dunne rescues Millwall with fine challenge on Pratley as he got round keeper Forde

4:46pm

Final five mins. A draw isn't enough here.

4:41pm

All gone very scrappy.

4:35pm

Eagles booked for a foul on Taylor

4:33pm

 
No idea!

4:29pm

Afobe on for Ngog

4:27pm

Wanderers have changed shape - Kevin Davies gone out to the right.

4:24pm

Eagles allowed himself to get involved with the fans... Unforgiveable penalty.

4:23pm

Great save from Bogdan - full length from Henderson's free kick

4:23pm

Andrews booked. Foul on Henry.

4:21pm

Oh no! Eagles puts the penalty in orbit, much to the delight of the home fans

4:20pm

Penalty! Abdou on Eagles

4:17pm

Wanderers get away with a penalty shout, Trotter brought down by Mills. They break, Kevin Davies digs a cross out well from the right and Eagles nearly squeezes a volley inside the post.

4:12pm

Much better since the second half started. Eagles should have done that with the free kick in the first half!

4:12pm

4:09pm

GOAL! Eagles drills low free-kick under the wall.

4:08pm

Henry dug a cross out frrom the right, Wood thought he had scored at far post. Stunning save from Bogdan...

4:02pm

Second half coming up

4:01pm

 
He's injured.

4:01pm

Wanderers SHOULD have had a penalty. But they are allowing these things to affect them too badly.

4:00pm

Needs a winger but other than Chungy, there isn't one on the bench...

3:58pm

 
No, I don't.

3:58pm

Midfield are too narrow, and Spearing in particular looks frustrated about it.

3:50pm

Half time, and not much to shout about at all...

3:46pm

Chances at both ends. Wood misses a sitter, Wanderers break and Forde denies Eagles with a brilliant save after being found by a fine pass by Andrews.

3:44pm

 
In farness, I'm on BBC Manchester

3:43pm

Mears wastes a glorious chance from a free kick. Why Eagles let him take it, I'm not sure...

3:39pm

Henderson slices down the left, plays a pass inside for Malone whose shot goes just wide.

3:37pm

Very patchy in possession, nervous at the back, this isn't good enough...

3:32pm

Big let off for Bogdan. Bad clearance charged down. Cross into the box wasn't punished.

3:26pm

3:26pm

Mark Davies had finally got hold of the ball and made in roads into the Millwall defence. It broke for Davo, but ref Ward waves away the protests.

3:25pm

That should have been a penalty! Mark Beevers charges down a Kev Davies shot, which hits his arm.

3:21pm

Ball broke for Henderson on the edge of the box, seemed to take a big deflection on its way past Bogdan.

3:18pm

GOAL! 1-0 MILLWALL

3:14pm

Henry causing problems. Great tackle from Mills there to stop him breaking through...

3:12pm

Sloppy from Whites so far on the left. No question that the goal should have been ruled out though...

3:10pm

Just before that, Matt Mills had made a great challenge on Chris Wood after James Henry had got down the right side.

3:10pm

Danny Shittu goal ruled out for a foul on Bogdan. Deffo a foul.

3:08pm

Good block from Dunne as Andrews blasts an angled shot at goal.

3:06pm

Scrappy start here at The Den.

3:01pm

Back again! Just kicked off...

2:52pm

Small crowd here at The Den. Probably 200 away fans to my left - I tip my cap to them!

2:51pm

 
Joe's fit as far as I know.

2:49pm

 
With respect, that's an assumption you/many have made. Not the case.

2:48pm

Players have finished their warm-up now. Shudder to think what kind of an international break we're in for if a result isn't gained today...

2:42pm

Hope I don't hear the word "uncontrollable" today... Mind, the referee is Gavin Ward...

2:40pm

2:40pm

2:36pm

2:36pm

 
Amazed he's not on the bench. Assumed any loan was stopped after Petrov jarred his back.

2:35pm

Heady mix of eighties tunes on the tannoy pre-match. Feels a bit like I'm in The Breakfast Club...

2:34pm

Personally, I'd stick to the written version. More my forte...

2:34pm

And if you are inclined to listen as well as read what I've got to say on the game, I've just dived into the commentary box to help Jack Dearden out on Radio Manchester.

2:27pm

 
You're not the first to ask this afternoon, and probably won't be the last. Don't think you can complain about Kevin Davies's inclusion after his goals against Leeds but Ngog hasn't hit the ground running has he?

2:21pm

Can you keep chopping and changing a back four and a keeper? Or is Owen Coyle hoping they will settle?

2:19pm

Do you agree with the tweet below?

2:19pm

2:18pm

So, fit-again Ngog in for Afobe. But no further tinkering to the team.

2:16pm

Millwall: Forde, Dunne, Shittu, Trotter, Henderson, Henry, Beevers, Smith, Abdou, Malone, Wood

Subs: Taylor, Wright, Racon, Batt, Mkandawire, Taylor, Keogh

 

Wanderers: Bogdan, Mears, Mills, Knight, Warnock, M Davies, Spearing, Andrews, Eagles, K Davies, Ngog

Subs: Lonergan, Ream, Afobe, Ricketts, Sordell, Pratley, Chung-Yong

1:41pm

 
Doubt there will be Petrov... certainly haven't seen him so far!

1:33pm

Chris Eagles, Gregg Wylde and Tim Ream added to that list.

1:33pm

Ngog's appearance in tracksuit would appear to suggest he's over that hamstring problem. But we will see!

1:32pm

Out on the pitch at present we have Chungy, Zat Knight, Benik Afobe, David Ngog - (!) - Darren Pratley, Mark Davies, Stephen Warnock, Keith Andrews and jay Spearing.

1:24pm


 

1:22pm

The stadium in now officially open, booms the man on the tannoy.

Well that got rid of the pigeons on the pitch, anyway.

1:14pm

1:14pm

Lots of people putting Petrov in their team. Last news I had was that he is very doubtful to play...

1:14pm



 

1:13pm



 

1:12pm

Here's a few more of your team ideas...

1:12pm

12:56pm

So, who would you have in your team today?? Tweet me @MarcIles

12:51pm

 
Coyle did get chatting about wingers, and having options in his midfield. That seemed at the time to point to Petrov/Chungy coming back into the frame, but with Petrov injured, who knows???

12:50pm

Something that I completely forgot to flag up this week is the fact that Danny Shittu should be anchoring the Millwall defence this afternoon.

A genuinely lovely fella, who didn't make the Premier League grade.

12:47pm

 
Totally agree (about the long ball part). Seemed to play into Leeds' hands and we're a better team than that.
Even though Owen has rubbed a few people up the wrong way with his comments this week, I agree totally on one thing: the football has been better in general since the Hull defeat. The problem is that one mistake/decision seems to cause more problems than it should...

12:45pm

 
You'll have to read the paper/wait for it to come on the BN website. But it's concerning his comeback to the UK.

12:43pm

I think that, in general, the team looks nervous. That manifests itself in different ways around the pitch. The only way you change that is by winning games...

12:42pm

 
My personal view is that I'd like to see Joe Riley given a go, and Sam Ricketts back in the team. But if this is the back four Owen Coyle has settled for, then they have to stick to the simple stuff. The 40-yard passes from Mills/Knight more often surrender possession.

12:39pm

On Thursday, Owen Coyle reckoned he would be without Marcos Alonso and David Ngog, and on Friday he revealed that Martin Petrov was struggling with a back injury. Where does that put us?

12:36pm

Good afternoon. The sun is out down on Coldblow Lane, which makes The Den look a more friendly and hospitable environment. Whether that remains the case at 3pm, I would very much doubt.
