Preview | Derby County v Millwall

Destination: Pride Park

23 February 2022

Millwall travel to Derby County in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

After Saturday's postponed fixture at Blackburn Rovers, The Lions head into the midweek meeting with rest under their belts and will go in search of a third consecutive victory as they take on Wayne Rooney's Rams.

Again, however, Gary Rowett will be without a number of players for the journey to Pride Park. Ryan Leonard, Tom Bradshaw, Sheyi Ojo, Oliver Burke, Luke Freeman and Benik Afobe have now been joined by Maikel Kieftenbeld on the sidelines after the Dutchman was ruled out with a hamstring injury before last weekend's cancelled game.

Tyler Burey was set for his first start at Ewood Park and could retain his place, whilst Daniel Ballard was also set for a place on the bench as he looked to continue his recovery from a long-term injury.

There will be a period of applause before kick-off as Derby County honour the life of former coach and caretaker manager, Billy McEwan. The Rams will also be wearing black armbands throughout the game.

Just over 500 fans will back the boys in Derbyshire, but if you are unable to make it, then you can watch all the action with a Video Match Pass. Costing just £10, click here for more details and to purchase.

There's plenty in the way of pre-match build-up - Rowett, Bartosz Bialkowski and Billy Mitchell all spoke to at Calmont Road earlier this week, whilst the latest episode of Wall Talk, Millwall Football Club's official podcast, with Marc Bircham can be downloaded here!
