Millwall   3 - 0   Crystal Palace

Millwall 3-0 Crystal Palace

Millwall 3-0 Crystal Palace

Jason Puncheon scored a hat-trick as Millwall eased to victory against struggling south London rivals Crystal Palace at The New Den.

The winger, on loan from Southampton, rifled in the opener from just inside the area after Palace failed to clear Josh McQuoid's header.

Puncheon's second came after he was played in by Scott Barron.

He grabbed his third from 12 yards to seal Millwall's win as they kept up the chase for a play-off place.

The Eagles, by contrast, remained three points from safety, with their winless run now stretching to five matches.

They had their chances, with Sean Scannell firing wide on three occasions.

Palace were also denied by Millwall goalkeeper David Forde, who managed to scoop the loose ball clear from Darren Ambrose's free-kick clear, with Pablo Counago ready to pounce.

The home side had other chances, with Puncheon firing a fierce shot against the post before the follow-up from Liam Trotter was cleared off the line by Adam Barrett.

Palace keeper Julian Speroni then had to produce a great save to deny Trotter, who also went close with a looped header that cleared the bar.

Millwall could have added a fourth late in the game when Jack Smith sent a low ball across the penalty area, which John Marquis only just failed to get contact on.
