/10/14 Championship League Game 11  Derby County 0 Millwall 0 att: 27,749

Ian Holloway was delighted with the Lions defence

Martyn Woolford starts and Mathew Briggs makes he's league debut. Ian Holloway mixes it up with Scott Malone and Mark Beevers dropped, Byron Williams comes in and makes he's first start since being subbed in the 29th minute at Reading, he put that substitution anguish to bed after having a superb game against Derby. Aiden O'Brien came on as a sub against Birrmingham and impressed us all including Holloway who game him a start against Derby and what a game to make your full league debut and on his 21st birthday. Once again he done well.

Richard Chaplow starts

I presume that all these changes which also included Richard Chaplow starting were Ian Holloway's response to a run of five games without a win. We still did not win but we could have done and after the dismal affair against Birmingham it cheered me up no end. I guess that the Derby supporters thought they were going to win this game and got all shirty and frustrated when they knew that wasn't going to happen. We were solid for most of the game and were worth the point. We should have had a penalty when Lee Gregory was pushed in the box but the ref must have had crap in he's eyes as he failed to see it.

Danny Shittu back in the side but on the bench
