Derby County will host Millwall in the re-arranged Sky Bet Championship fixture under the lights at Pride Park Stadium on Wednesday night, kick-off 7:45pm.
Frank Lampard’s side will look to build momentum as all the focus now is on the 15 remaining league games following the Rams’ exit from the FA Cup. Here, dcfc.co.uk has gathered all the information you will need ahead of the clash with Neil Harris’ side.
Jack Marriott made his return from injury on the weekend for the second-half of the FA Cup meeting with Brighton and Hove Albion.
The game with Millwall could come too soon for Mason Mount who is dealing with a muscle injury. However, there are no new injury concerns for Lampard.
WHAT THE BOSS HAD TO SAY…
Speaking to RamsTV ahead of the game, Lampard said: “We have had two good runs in the cup but the absolute focus now and the job in hand is the 15 games left.
“Each one of them we have to give everything to try and push up in the top-six and beyond hopefully. It is in our hands and it is good to have that clarity.
“They [Millwall] are difficult opponents no matter which way you look at it. Their performances last year to almost push them into the play-offs and they are a team with a good manager that plays to their strengths which makes it difficult for you to play. It’s going to be a tough game.”

WHAT’S TO COME IN THE RAM…

THE LAST MEETING…
Millwall 2-1 Derby County
Saturday August 18th, 2018
The Rams fell two goals behind in the opening 20 minutes to goals from Lee Gregory and Shaun Williams.
Martyn Waghorn found the back of the net, but his goal was ruled offside after breaking through and tucking his effort away.
David Nugent pulled on back for Derby after the break with shot from the edge of the box after a counter-attack. A better second-half performance from the Rams saw them pile on the pressure and look for an equaliser, however they couldn’t find the answer.
