Confirmed: Rotherham v Derby County line-ups - Ince starts

New York Stadium sign, Rotherham

Here are the teams as Rotherham host Derby County in the Championship this evening.

Rotherham head into the Championship game against Derby looking to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three. Rotherham are currently only three points above the relegation places and a win could move them two places up the table. The problem for the team appears to have been scoring goals as they have only conceded one more goal than Watford who find themselves in the play-off places as things stand. Steve Evans’ side were unlucky not to get a result in their last game, where they lost 2-1 at the hands of Blackburn.

Derby County’s incentive to win this evening is the chance to move into the outright lead at the top of the Championship. The Rams have been in good form in the league in recent weeks and will be looking to react in positive fashion after their defeat in the FA Cup last weekend. Derby have one of the best attacks in the division with 58 goals scored and an emphatic performance in this game will also help to send out a message to Middlesbrough ahead of their game tomorrow.
