‘Bang average’: Derby County lose vital ground on top six with defeat to Millwall

The Rams aren’t in great form and are in danger of falling out of play-off contention altogether.

Derby County’s season suffered a substantial blow last night when they were beaten 1-0 by Millwall at Pride Park.

Jed Wallace’s goal 18 minutes from time was enough to put a severe dent in Frank Lampard’s tilt at reaching the top-six.

It is now just 14 points from the last 11 league games for the Rams, with Nottingham Forest next up on Monday night.

Lampard’s Derby looked somewhat jaded against a resolute Lions side, with Millwall boosting their survival hopes with a big win.

The club’s supporters have been here before.

Typically it is February or March time when the wheels come off for the Rams and they need to get back on track quickly.

Lampard has the perfect game to try and get things back on track.

A win over fierce rivals Forest would increase morale at the club no end, and set Derby up nicely for a final push.

Following the game, Derby supporters were naturally not best pleased.

The Rams faithful were fuming at the defeat and were pondering where the season will go from here.
