Derby County vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Derby continued their recent good form with a 2-0 home victory over fifth placed Aston Villa last time out. Andreas Weimann gave them the lead and they wrapped a deserved three points in the 90th minute through Johnny Russell. Millwall continued their strong run as they defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 at the Den in their previous match. Jed Wallace and George Saville both netted in the first-half to secure them a deserved three points. The previous meetings between these sides came in the 2014/15 season and both games finished all-square. Lee Gregory who still plays for the Lions netted a hat-trick in one of these games and will hope that is a good omen.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Rams will be a popular bet given a run of three straight victories and five in six. A word of caution though Reading and Ipswich have won at the Macron recently and they needed an 81st minute goal to defeat Burton. Millwall are without a win on the road but have drawn five of their last eight on the road including useful points at Cardiff, Preston and Villa. NO in the both teams to score market looks worth a selection as this would have paid in nine of 11 at the Macron this season and in nine of 11 on the road for the Lions. In addition, take a small play on the game to have under 1.5 goals as the visitors are toothless on the road while the Rams are not smashing teams.

Derby County Preview

It is three straight victories for the Rams and five from their last six and they now sit in fourth place four above fifth and three behind second spot. They have a mixed run of games ahead with two bottom-half sides and two top eight teams in their next four. At the Macron Stadium, they have won their last two and seven of their last ten over the longer period. None of their last four in front of their own fans has seen both teams score with seven of the last eight going under 2.5 goals. Derby County have netted an impressive 11 times and conceded on just one occasion from their last six fixtures. Johnny Russell has netted two in the last three and three in the last five at home.

Derby County Team News

Tom Lawrence (ankle), Jason Shackell (calf), Darren Bent (hamstring), Jamie Hanson (calf) and Mason Bennett (knee) are doubts. Kyle McAllister (groin) is a few months away from a return.

Millwall Preview

It is now seven points from the last three for the Lions and just one defeat in the last six which has allowed them to climb to 17th. They have a tricky start to their four-game holiday run with the Rams and Wolves before it eases off against Norwich and QPR. Away from the Den, they are still looking for their first victory but they have drawn five of their last eight. They have failed to net in their last two and five of their last seven on their travels though they have conceded just six times in these ties. A massive 13 of 22 (over 50%) of their fixtures so far have been level going into the interval. 24 of the 46 goals that have occurred in Millwall matches in the Championship this season have happened in the first-half.

Millwall Team News

Shane Ferguson (unknown), Fred Onyedinma (groin) and Byron Webster (cruciate) are all doubts.
