    Derby County vs Rotherham United

    Derby are unbeaten in their last five league games against Rotherham, winning four and drawing the other.

    This will be Rotherham's first campaign in the second tier since 2004/05, when they won just five games all season and finished bottom with 29 points.

    The last meeting between these two sides was a League Cup clash in August 2009 in which Rotherham ran out 2-1 winners.

    Derby County recovered a league-high 22 points from losing positions last season (excl. play-offs).

    Craig Bryson had a hand in 29 (16 goals, 13 assists) goals last season, more than any other Championship midfielder.

    The Rams have gone five games unbeaten on the opening day of the season, winning three (D2).

    Only Wolves (48) picked up more points on the road in League One in 2013/14 than Rotherham (46).

    The Rams missed five penalties last season; a league-high.

    Ben Pringle provided 16 assists for Rotherham last term (incl. play-offs); a league-high.
