Derby County Preview – Will the Rams secure a crucial three points?

Although Derby County have shown a big improvement of late, the Rams remain in the bottom three of the Championship at the halfway point. County have lost 50% of their league matches this term, winning just four times along the way.

The Rams, who are currently under the caretaker management of Wayne Rooney, are four points ahead of bottom side Wycombe Wanderers, but they are level on points with Sheffield Wednesday, who occupy 21st position.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1210 GMT, Friday 15 January)

Last weekend, a second-string Derby side fell to an embarrassing third round Emirates FA Cup defeat to National League North outfit Chorley. That was County’s third loss in four league and cup games.

Derby have had a mixed bag of results of late but having taken just three points from the last nine on offer, the Midlands outfit could certainly do with maximum points from this one.

Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers avoid an eighth successive away league loss?

Rotherham United have found Championship life tough going since winning promotion from EFL League One last term. So far, the Millers have won four, drawn four and lost 12 of their opening 20 fixtures. They have games in hand on their rivals, but Rotherham are second from bottom with just 16 points to their name.

Since a 2-1 home win over Preston North End back on November 7th, Rotherham have picked up just one league victory in nine, with seven of those ending in defeat. After beating Bristol City 2-0 in mid-December, Rotherham have lost 2-1 to both Blackburn Rovers and Barnsley.

Rotherham have not won on the road since beating Wycombe Wanderers on the opening weekend. They head to Pride Park having lost eight league and cup away games on the spin. Paul Warne’s men will be desperate to avoid defeat at the weekend.


Derby County vs Rotherham United Betting Advice

When these two teams last met, Derby thumped Rotherham at Pride Park. The Rams ran riot, with Martyn Waghorn helping himself to a treble. However, the Millers won the reverse game that season, with a second-half Ryan Manning penalty giving United a 1-0 victory at the New York Stadium.


Key Facts – Derby County vs Rotherham United Betting Tip

  • Derby won 6-1 at Pride Park when these two teams last met
  • Both sides are currently in the Championship drop zone
  • The Millers have won just one of the last 13 league meetings


Neither side are in good form, but Derby will fancy their chances against a Rotherham side who have lost each of their last seven away games in the Championship. It could be a close one on the scoreline, though, so back the Rams to win by one goal at 13/5.

Derby have opened the scoring in all four of their league wins this term. You can get 4/7 for the home side to score first in this one.
