Derby County vs Millwall

Frank Lampard will be hoping for a simple enough three points this Wednesday at Pride Park where they will go up against Millwall. Derby head into matchday 32 sat in seventh place just two points adrift from the top six which Lampard will be keen to move up into by the end of the season. Despite Millwall having a poor season, they are never easy opponents and their impressive progress in the FA Cup will be certainly boosting their confidence. When these sides met at the Den, Millwall took the three points with a 2-1 win which Frank Lampard will not want to see be repeated on Wednesday.

Derby County’s season has been filled with them slipping in and out of the top six, which they currently sit just outside of by two points. The Rams do hold a game in hand, or two, over the majority of sides surrounding them which could play to their advantage. Derby have only managed to secure two wins in their last five matches, but only one has ended in defeat with the other two finishing as draws. They suffered their defeat in their most recent fixture against Brighton in the FA Cup. the hosts are clear favourites for this fixture and can be backed with SkyBet at a price of 1/1.

The Rams have been defensively strong this year and over the course of the season have conceded just 36 goals. Over the last five games, they have kept three clean sheets and with Millwall scoring, just one goal in their last four could be in line to keep another on Wednesday. SkyBet has them to keep a clean sheet priced at 13/8. Harry Wilson remains his sides top goalscorer this season with 12 goals and is bound to cause Millwall problems. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 13/5.

Millwall have had a tough season in the Championship and have had little to cheer about, but their progress in the FA Cup has shed some light during this miserable season for the Lions. Millwall secured a spot in the Quarter-Finals of the FA Cup after beating Wimbledon 1-0. Despite their progress in the FA Cup, Millwall are without a win in the league in their last five fixtures, following their 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. If you fancy the underdog’s chances then SkyBet has them priced at 11/4 to secure the three points.

The Lions desperately need to find some goalscoring form as at their current rate it will not be long before they find themselves back down in the relegation zone. Over their last five league games, they have scored just one goal. You can back Millwall to goalless for the fourth consecutive game with Bet365 for a price of 13/8. If Millwall are to score it is likely to come from their top goalscorer, Lee Gregory who has ten goals this season. Betway has him to score priced at 13/5.
