Derby County vs Rotherham (By: Joey)
Derby County were held to a second consecutive stalemate just before the international break as Stoke City managed a goalless draw at the Pride Park. Even though Derby are unbeaten in three matches, they have managed just one win in this period.
Rotherham were beaten at home by table leaders Norwich City with a 2-1 score just before the international break. This was only the second defeat for Rotherham since February.
The reverse fixture between Rotherham and Derby witnessed a 1-0 victory for the home team, as they capitalised on Tom Lawrence’s early sending off in the second half. Derby County, though, were able to pick up an impressive 3-0 success over Rotherham in the last meeting at Pride Park.
Derby County look to recover from their recent slump in form when they take on Rotherham United at the Pride Park this weekend. Derby have dropped out of the play-offs in the recent few weeks and they now trail Aston Villa by one point. Rotherham United remain in the bottom three but they are very close to getting out of the relegation zone with Reading just one point ahead.
There has been a walkover for Derby whenever they have faced Rotherham at Pride Park, as they have been able to win all six meetings. Derby’s biggest struggles against this opponent have come in away matches and Lampard will be quite relieved about these statistics. Derby need a victory in order to avoid losing touch of the play-off places. The inferior goal difference for Derby – in comparison with the likes of Aston Villa – effectively places Lampard’s men at a big disadvantage in terms of promotion hopes.
