One to Watch: Tom Lawrence

Wales international Tom Lawrence is flourishing under new boss Frank Lampard. The attacking midfielder has three goals in his last four Championship outings and is a player to include in this weekend’s football predictions. Derby are on a winning streak and Lawrence will be ready to continue his good form against an inconsistent opponent. This Championship preview looks at a Rotherham team that have conceded 11 in six games and theres another opportunity for Lawrence to get amongst the goals.

Rotherham United vs Derby County Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will playing at home inspire a third Rotherham victory?

Rotherham United’s two league victories to date have both come at home and it already appears likely they will lean on that home form to help them this season. A narrow defeat last time out against Wigan Athletic leaves Rotherham in 15th position and they will want to avoid another defeat when they welcome in-form Derby County. Their visitors have been unable to take maximum points from the New York Stadium on their last three visits and Rotherham will hope that record is extended for another season. The Millers start as outsiders, they are 5/2 with bet365 to claim an important win.

Derby are on and roll. It is one defeat in six and they travel to Rotherham off the back of four consecutive wins in all competitions. The Rams are free flowing, full of confidence and finding the net with 10 goals scored and just one conceded in this little winning streak. A win on the road in their last league game against Hull will have served as ideal preparation for this trip. Many will be backing the away side to collective a fifth straight win in their Championship predictions. The betting markets back up that trail of thought, Lampard’s men are 21/20 favourites.

A draw has been a feature of this fixture in recent history, it is 12/5 for a repeat football prediction.

Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn are favourites to score first at 5/1 with team mate David Nugent backing them up at 11/2. Kyle Vassell is best placed to score first for Rotheram at 15/2.

Predicted Score: Rotherham United 1 - 2 Derby County
