The Rams made it four wins on the trot in all competitions before the international break when they dispatched Hull City 1-2 away at KCOM. Such fine thread catapulted them to the fourth place in the league ladder as the Rams are once again considered serious promotional contenders.

Can they keep such streak going on Saturday afternoon when Derby travel to South Yorkshire to tackle league new boys Rotherham at AESSEAL New York Stadium?

The visitors are certainly massive favourites ahead of the contest. The Millers quickly returned on the losing ways after beating Millwall in late-August. They made it four defeats in five games in the previous round, falling 1-0 to Wigan Athletic away at The DW Stadium.

Rotherham vs Derby County: Head-to-head

Apart from the form, the H2H tradition also speaks in Derby’s favour here,

The Rams won 7, drew 4 and lost only 2 of 13 encounters with Rotherham.

However, just one of these seven wins came at AESSEAL New York Stadium where teams mainly shared spoils over the history.

Rotherham vs Derby County: Prediction

Rotherham have one of the weakest defensive lines in the league. They boast competition’s second worst defensive record with 11 goals conceded in 6 games so far.

Derby were thriving in the final third in recent fixtures. They bagged two or more goals in all of past four outings and they should really have plenty of room to maintain such an exciting attacking form against the bottom-half Millers here.

Martin Waghorn scored his first goal of the season in third appearance for Derby two weeks ago against Hull City. Welsh midfielder Tom Lawrence has mainly been responsible for the finishing touch so far. He has three goals to his name after six league outings.

The away win here is probably one of the safest picks you’ll find this weekend. You can back it at the sky-high 2.00 odds.

Rotherham vs Derby County: Bet Tips

  • Derby to beat Rotherham at the odd 2.00 (1/1)
  • Derby to score Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.10 (11/10).
