Millwall v Derby County team line-ups: One change from Rowett as Millwall make Championship return


Gary Rowett has made one change to the Millwall side that won 3-0 at the City Ground in March before the Championship was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ryan Leonard returns in place of Mason Bennett, who can’t play against his parent club.

The Lions chief has opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation with Jayson Molumby and Ryan Woods as the holding midfielders and Ryan Leonard as the advanced midfielder behind Matt Smith, who keeps his place following a hat-rick at the City Ground last time out.

Billy Mitchell, James Brown and Hayden Muller are on a nine-man bench, with five substitutes permitted if required.

Wayne Rooney starts for Derby, who also include former Lion Martyn Waghorn as their central attacking threat.

Millwall: Bialkowski; Romeo Hutchinson, Cooper, M Wallace; Molumby, Woods; J Wallace, Leonard, Ferguson; Smith Subs: Steele, Williams, Bradshaw, Brown, Mahoney, Bodvarsson, Skalak,  Mitchell, Muller

Derby: Hamer; Wisdom, Forsyth, Waghorn, Lawrence, Clarke, Holmes, Rooney, Bogle, Sibley, Brid Subs: Roos, Shinnie, Jozefzoon, Evans, Martin, Lowe, Davis, Knight, Whittaker
