Derby County vs Millwall Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 14th December 15.00pm

Former Derby County boss Gary Rowett has made a huge impact at Millwall already, lifting the club up to 13th. This Saturday, the Lions will be hoping to follow up Tuesday’s stunning win at Bristol City with another three points on the road. However, Phillip Cocu’s Derby have been excellent at Pride Park lately, and this could go either way. Get ready for what promises to be an intriguing EFL Championship fixture in the Midlands.

Derby County News and Form – Rams to return to winning ways at home?

Since arriving at Pride Park in the summer, Phillip Cocu has guided Derby County to just one away win, which was at Huddersfield Town in his first game in charge. The Rams have lost each of their last five on the road without scoring a single goal.

However, Derby have been a completely different animal at Pride Park. Bristol City remain the only side to have beaten them on their own patch, with County winning five and drawing four of nine since then. After five successive home wins, County have drawn their previous two, though.

Having failed to win home or away in four, the pressure is on Cocu. The Dutchman has yet to win over the fans at Pride Park, as County have spent the majority of the season in the bottom half of the table. Can they get back to winning ways at home at the weekend?

  • The Rams are unbeaten in their last nine at home, picking up five wins and drawing four times
  • The Lions have lost just once since Rowett’s arrival

 

Millwall News and Form – Will Rowett’s Lions make it two away wins in a week?

Millwall could be dark horses in the play-off race this season. The Lions came close a couple of seasons ago under Neil Harris, but will Gary Rowett be the man to get them over the line? The new boss has made a superb start at The Den, guiding the London club to four wins from eight games.

Millwall have been very hard to beat under his tenure also, losing only to Reading at the Madejski Stadium. After three consecutive draws, the Lions battled to an outstanding 2-1 win at Bristol City in midweek, with Jed Wallace and Jake Cooper getting the goals at Ashton Gate.

Millwall fear nobody in the Championship, and they head to Pride Park in great spirits after the brilliant win in Bristol. Can the Lions become the first visiting team to win at Derby since August?

Derby County vs Millwall Predictions

Draw: As mentioned, Derby County are a very tough nut to crack on their own patch. If they can sort out their away form, the Rams could make a dash for the play-offs in the second half of the season.

Millwall have been extremely solid under their new boss, and their victory at Bristol City in midweek was a highlight to their season. Before Tuesday’s triumph, the Lions had battled to successive draws with Wigan Athletic, Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest. I’m backing Millwall to draw (11/5) at Pride Park on Saturday.

Millwall’s Jed Wallace has had a fine season thus far, netting eight Championship goals. Half of those have come since Rowett joined, and the 25-year-old is available at 11/4 to score anytime this weekend.
