Our football match prediction:
High-flying Derby County will be looking to extend their winning run in the Championship to four games when they welcome Millwall at their iPro Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Rams have been producing splendid performances in the English second tier of late and you should know that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the league. Derby are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League and upcoming festive fixtures are of big importance for the club. A man to watch in the home team will be Matej Vydra, who has netted 12 goals in the Championship so far this season. The Lions, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough at the weekend, but seeing that their away record is anything but good, we predict the capital club will return to London empty-handed.
