South London is ours after win over Lions

Crystal Palace won South London bragging rights after a 1-0 win at Millwall.

Jermaine Easter grabbed the only goal of the game - his fifth of the season - to give the Eagles their first win at The Den since 1996.

Easter's goal came after 23 minutes from a fine move. Wilfried Zaha found space on the right to cross to Chris Martin and the on-loan Norwich forward found Darren Ambrose whose first-time cross was slotted home by former Millwall player Easter.

On the half-hour mark, Mile Jedinak fired a powerful shot that was tipped over by Lions keeper Steve Mildenhall. Millwall's best chance fell to Dany N'Guessan who headed Hamer Bouazza's cross wide from two yards out.

Palace keeper Lewis Price reacted quickly to block Liam Trotter, while Mildenhall saved Ambrose's free-kick and Martin's follow-up, then later stopping a Zaha effort.

Millwall piled on the pressure but the closest they got to scoring was a header from Paul Robinson which was cleared off the line by Jonathan Parr.

Millwall: Mildenhall, Smith, Robinson, Lowry, Craig, Feeney, Trotter, Abdou, Bouazza (Henry 66), N'Guessan (Simpson 46), Marquis.

Not Used: Forde, Ward, Wright.

Palace: Price, Clyne, McCarthy, Gardner, Parr, Ambrose, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Martin (Ramage 85), Zaha (Scannell 73), Easter (Murray 78).

Not Used: Fitzsimons, Garvan.
