Derby County extended their unbeaten run away from home but were held to a 0-0 draw by Millwall at The Den. There were few chances in the game with Matej Vydra having a shot blocked at close range and Jed Wallace having a shot saved by Scott Carson before Ikechi Anya had an effort ruled out for offside in the closing stages as both sides settled for a point.

There was no place in the squad for Johnny Russell or Chris Martin who had both been the subject of transfer speculation in the proceeding days but The Rams still looked dangerous on the break in early stages with George Thorne shooting straight at Jordan Archer after a swift passing move gave him a sight of goal. Chances were at a premium after the early stages with Tom Elliot forcing a save from Scott Carson and Matej Vydra having a close range shot deflected over the top after Andreas Weimann`s low cross was pushed out the only moments of note before the break.

With an hour on the clock Derby began to dominate possession but the home side looked to play on the break and Curtis Davies had to be alert to stop Lee Gregory as he ran at goal. Cameron Jerome forced a save from Archer after coming on from the bench and fellow substitute Ikechi Anya was denied by an offside flag inside the final ten minutes, replays showed it was a close call but he looked onside and the goal should have stood. Jed Wallace forced a low save from Carson with a short from outside the area as the game finished goalless.
