Derby County and Millwall played out a hard fought encounter but there was little to show in terms of goalmouth incident in a 0-0 draw at The Den. Craig Bryson missed a glorious opportunity with the goal at his mercy after David Forde could only palm a Jamie Ward effort into his path but he side footed his effort wide of the goal and with both sides looking solid at the back neither goalkeeper had a lot to do on a cold afternoon. An early goalmouth scramble in the second half and a close range header from Andy Keogh in injury time were the only real chances of note after the break and both sides went home with a point.

John Brayford missed out with a knock meaning that Paul Green came in at rightback and there was also a start for Nathan Tyson after his recent return to fitness. Millwall started the better of the two sides although they only had long range efforts from James Henry and Josh Wright to show for their start both of which flew harmlessly over the bar. Chances were few and far between and Callum Ball had The Rams` first effort of the match on twenty minutes but his shot from a tight angle flashed across goal and out for a throw-in on the far side after Jamie Ward had put Alan Dunne under pressure.

Paul Robinson was first to a Henry corner from the right but he headed wide from a good position and Craig Bryson should have given Derby the lead at the other end when Ward`s curling effort could only be palmed back into the path of the Scottish midfielder but with the goal gaping he side-footed wide of the mark when he really should have done better and the sides went in goalless at the break.

An early cross from Scott Barron in the second half caused panic in the Derby defence before Liam Trotter fired wide under pressure from Frank Fielding. The Rams were looking to catch the home side on the break with Tyson and Ward both looking lively and a knock down from Ball found Tom Carroll but the young midfielder snatched at the effort and put it well wide of the mark. Ryan Mason played Henry through goal but as he looked set to shoot Paul Green and Shaun Barker combined to deny the opportunity and shot on goal. The half continued to be a tight one with few chances and Andy Keogh headed over the bar from close range in the closing stages in the only scare for either goalkeeper before the final whistle.
