Championship

Huddlestone and Lawrence must start under Lampard against Rotherham

Huddlestone and Lawrence must start under Lampard against Rotherham

Derby County have enjoyed a rather strong start to life under Frank Lampard as they continue to hunt down an automatic promotion place. 

The Rams have already secured four wins in the current campaign and don’t look like slowing down anytime soon, with supporters finally starting to believe.

However, Derby will travel to the New York City Stadium to face Rotherham United in their next Championship encounter. The Millers have been a mixed bag this season but they have caused a few teams problems already, so the Rams will be up against it away from home.

Nevertheless, Frank Lampard has some decisions to make in terms of team selection, with a couple of players possibly forcing their way into the side.

With that in mind, these TWO Derby County men must start today…

Tom Huddlestone

The Englishman hasn’t made an appearance in the Championship so far this season but will no doubt play a key part in Frank Lampard’s first campaign as Derby boss.

Indeed, the 31-year-old can provide a wealth of experience and will be crucial in the middle of midfield against a side like Rotherham United, who look to bully you out of possession and boss the midfield.

Tom Lawrence

Tom Lawrence has established himself as one of the most impressive players in the Championship over the past couple of seasons, and already has three goals to his name in the current campaign.

The Welshman was on the substitutes’ bench last time out, but Lampard won’t think twice about bringing him back into the starting lineup as he has the ability to single-handedly win the game for the Rams later on today.
