Derby   0 - 0   Millwall

Derby County v Millwall

Derby 0-0 Millwall

Millwall missed the chance to move up into the top six of the Championship as they were held to a stalemate at Derby.

Both sides had chances to secure all three points but were guilty of wasteful finishing as the Lions made it four consecutive away draws.

Steve Morison twice headed good chances for Millwall off target, and Jack Smith dragged a fine late opportunity wide.

Kris Commons wasted Derby's best chance when he was denied one-on-one as the Rams slipped into the bottom half.

Their fall away from the promotion places has coincided with a run of no wins in their last three home matches, having won their previous six at Pride Park.

By contrast, Millwall stretched their unbeaten league run to eight matches - thanks in no small part to a defensive record of just two goals conceded in that time.

And it could have been even better had Morison not twice spurned good heading opportunities, the first while unmarked at the back post and the second from James Henry's corner.

Tamika Mkandawire also headed a decent Lions chance wide before Smith almost broke the deadlock against the run of play 18 minutes from time, only for the defender to skew his shot horribly.

Derby had their chances too, and it took a fine save from Millwall keeper David Forde to deny Commons, through on goal, in the 53rd minute.

Chris Porter was also off target with two efforts for the hosts, and Alberto Bueno narrowly failed to test Forde with a 25-yard free-kick as both sides had to settle for a point.
