Danny McNamara cannot wait for Saturday's Emirates FA Cup Third Round meeting with Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon - and has detailed how "special" this weekend's game will be for all involved.

The 23-year-old lifelong Millwall fan made his professional Lions debut at the same stage last season - against Vanarama National League side Boreham Wood - and will now take to the field against Premier League opposition for the first time.

"I can't wait. When the draw happened, I was buzzing to get Palace," he told millwallfc.co.uk. "It's going to be a special day.

"We've had games like this before, with Everton and Leicester City. We know how much excitement it brings to the fans, and hopefully we can please them and have a good day on Saturday.

"These games are special to my family, my friends, myself, everybody. I can't wait to get out there and play against good opposition. It will be a good test."
