Match: Derby County vs Rotherham United
Date: January 16, 2021
Kick-off time: 15:00 (UK time)
Stadium: Pride Park
Derby County's interim manager, Wayne Rooney, will be hopeful of a Tom Lawrence return after he has missed the last four matches with an ankle injury.
Forward Martyn Waghorn is eligible for a return, after he served a three-match ban for a red card received against Preston North End in December.
35-year-old Curtis Davies is still sidelined and is set to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon.
Aside from that, Rooney has a fully fit squad to choose from for Saturdays clash.
Rotherham have been riddled with injuries this season and will be without Shaun MacDonald, Matt Crooks, Kieran Sadlier, Joe Mattock, Chiedozie Ogbene, and Angus MacDonald, who are all recovering from injuries.
Some good news for Millers boss Paul Warne, is that striker Freddie Ladapo looks set for a return after a slight groin problem.
Wayne Rooney’s Derby, are 22nd in the league on 19 points, having played 22, they have won four, drawn seven and lost 11. In their last league match, the Rams lost 1-0 away against Sheffield Wednesday.
Striker Martyn Waghorn is ruled out through suspension.
Rotherham, managed by Paul Warne, are 23rd in the table, with 16 points. Twenty games in, they have won four, drawn four and lost 12. Last time out in the league, the Millers lost 2-1 at home against Barnsley.
Winger Chiedozie Ogbene and defender Clark Robertson are ruled out through injury.
Both last faced each other in March 2019, with Derby winning 6-1 at home.
Marshall, Buchanan, Clarke, Wisdom, Byrne, Knight, Bielik, Shinnie, Jozwiak, Kazim-Richards, Waghorn.
Blackman, Harding, Jones, Wood, Ihiekwe, Olosunde, Wiles, Barlaser, Lindsay, Clarke, Ladapo.
Players to watch
Colin Kazim-RIchards is the Rams' top scorer this season with three goals. Whilst his return does not sound spectacular on paper, his experience and quality of being able to hold the ball up effectively brings others into play and is a crucial part to the way Derby attack.
19-year-old Jason Knight is a breath of fresh air in the Derby midfield, his determination and grit helps him pick up some great attacking positions.
Knight has started 21 of Derby's 22 league games this season and whilst he has only picked up two goals, he is certainly an integral part of the Rams midfield.
Krystian Bielik adds a real bit of quality to Rooney's midfield. His composure and energy help him break up the play excellently and his 84% passing accuracy this season proves how important his passing quality is in the middle of the pitch for the Rams.
As for Rotherham, their record signing, Ladapo, has four goals to his name this season and his ruthlessness in front of goal is one for the Derby backline to keep an eye on.
Wing-back, Matthew Olosunde, attacks with great purpose. His direct running and silky dribbling means he often finds himself in great positions in the final third. He is another one Derby need to keep close tabs on.
Englishman, Daniel Barlaser, has been one of the Millers most consistent performers this campaign, picking up three goals and two assists in 14 appearances. He'll, no doubt, be looking to add to his tally in what is a very important game at the rear of the table.
A surprise return of Rooney
On August 6, five-time Premier League winner Wayne Rooney- England and Manchester United's record goalscorer, no less - was revealed as the Derby County's manager in a tumultuous 12 months. It was a sensational story, particularly given the fact he had displayed his match-winning capabilities during two seasons in the MLS with DC United.
