Rotherham United vs Derby County 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. Rotherham will be looking to bounce back from defeat after going down 1-0 to Wigan just ahead of the international break. The expected goals data suggested that there was little to choose between the sides just the Latics took their main chance well. Derby will think the international break came at the wrong time as they recorded their third straight victory with a 2-1 defeat of Hull. Martyn Waghorn (penalty) and Florian Jozefzoon got the goals that give them the success that their performance probably did not deserve. These two were in different divisions last season so you have to go back two seasons for their last meetings. The Rams took four points from these and are now six without defeat against the Millers.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are strong favourites to win the game and while I think they are the most likely the prices do not inspire me to back them while Rotherham are probably going to slide a little in the coming weeks so this looks a game not to get involved in the result market. Look at one of the other match markets and take the game to have exactly two or three goals which has happened in five of the six the Rams have played this season. In addition, each of the three the East Midlands outfit have had on the road have ended 2-1 so take a small interest on them in the correct score market.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers have had a slow but not terrible start to life back in the Championship winning two and losing four of their six. They sit in 15th with six points while the expected goals data feels they should be a little lower in 20th. At the New York Stadium, they have two victories and one defeat this season and have lost just one of their last ten in all competitions. Including the League Cup, Jamie Proctor has three in his last three in front of his own fans. Rotherham have seen just two of their six go over 2.5 goals with three of them producing exactly one goal. They are slow starters having netted just two goals in the opening 45 minutes over their first six.

Rotherham United Team News

Sean Raggett (back) and Darren Potter (unknown) are expected to miss out.

Derby County Preview

After a slow start things are picking up for the Rams who have won three straight and now have four wins and two defeats from their first six. They sit in fourth place with 12 points while the expected goals data has them as low as 15th. Away from Pride Park, they have won two of three-putting to an end a run last season that saw them go four without a road win. All three on their travels have ended in the same 2-1 scoreline. Four of the six Derby have played have gone over 2.5 goals with five featuring exactly two or three goals. Their half-time results have been mixed with two wins, two draws and two defeats.

Derby County Team News

Curtis Davies (hamstring) and Jayden Bogle (ankle) are doubts while George Evans (knee) is out for a few weeks and Marcus Olsson (cruciate) is a long-term absentee.
