CONFIRMED: Derby County v Millwall line-ups

Derby County West Stand

Here is how Derby County and Millwall will line up for this afternoon’s match at the iPro Stadium...

Derby County starting XI: Grant; Christie, Keogh (C), Whitbread, Forsyth; Eustace, Hughes, Bryson; Ward, Ibe, Martin

Subs: Mitchell, Hendrick, Russell, Calero, Best, Shotton, Mascarell

Millwall starting XI: Forde; Dunne, Webster, Williams, Briggs; Chaplow, Abdou; O'Brien, McDonald, Woolford; Gregory

Subs: King, Shittu, Beevers, Malone, Upson, Powell, Fuller.

Derby County will look to make it four wins in a row as they face Iain Holloway's Millwall at the iPro Stadium this afternoon.

Steve McClaren's side seem to have kicked on having come back from 2-0 down to draw with Cardiff City two weeks ago, with three consecutive 2-0 wins over Reading in the Capital One Cup, as well as Bolton Wanderers and Bournemouth as the Rams start to hit form.

Today, McClaren goes with the potent front three of Jamie Ward, Jordon Ibe and Chris Martin, with Martin in particular in a rich vein of form having hit three goals in his last two games, taking his tally to seven for the season.

Meanwhile, Millwall are without a win since the end of August as Holloway struggles to get the Lions in form, with their last game ending in a disappointing 3-1 home defeat to 20th placed Birmingham City. That followed on from losses to Huddersfield Town, Reading and Ipswich Town, though a draw against Nottingham Forest was a credible result.

Derby will be hot favourites to win the game given their impressive form of late and Millwall's struggles, but predicting results in the Championship will always be risky.
