Derby County v Millwall team line-ups: Lions unchanged for Pride Park test

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall manager Gary Rowett has named an unchanged side for today’s Championship match at Derby County.

The Lions are unbeaten in six games and deservedly won 2-1 at Bristol City on Tuesday night.

Rowett will once again go with the 5-2-3 formation which worked so effectively in midweek and also at Swansea, where Millwall recorded their first maximum haul of the season on the road.

Derby have lost their last two matches against Millwall but have only tasted defeat twice in 22 league games at Pride Park in 2019.

One selection boost is that Shane Ferguson, troubled by a knee problem, is fit enough for a place on the bench.

Ryan Leonard (knee) is still missing.

Former Charlton Athletic loanee Krystian Bielik had been a doubt with a hip injury but is fit enough to be on the bench.

Derby County: Hamer, Forsyth, Bogle, Knight, Davies, Lowe, Holmes, Evans, Lawrence, Waghorn, Martin. Subs: Roos, Wisdom, Bielik, Dowell, Josefzoon, Malone, Whittaker.

Millwall: Bialkowski, Pearce, Romeo, Cooper, Pearce, Hutchinson, M Wallace, Williams, Molumby, J Wallace, Bodvarsson, Bradshaw. Subs: Steele, Ferguson, Thompson, Mahoney, Skalak, O’Brien, Smith.
