What's this, two Saturday 3PM kickoff in a row?! Unbelievable Jeff!

Well we really should be winning this. After a good week where we are actually starting to show good performances and getting points with it, I wouldn't expect anything less than 3 points here; this is the championship though so nothing is certain.

Rotherham don't look great, saw some of the match against Wednesday and their defence was fairly shambolic for the goals. They are also without star defender Rawson, courtesy of our academy and on loan ;)

Should be a nice win, 3-1 Derby with Martin to score another and Russell and Johnson with the other 2.

Heavy home win unfortunately, dread to think what will happen if we have to resort to playing Collins and Broadfoot together.

Has there ever been a bigger home banker in the history of football

4-0 Derby, with the biggest surprise of the day being Steve Evans turning up as he thought Leeds was just a dream

Not amazing, but good win for us. Rotherham offered nothing all game apart from the old pot-shot and they just don't know how to create chances at all, could be a bad season for them.

Did what we needed and could have done more if needed, but we were never in danger and onto the next game.

Easy.

Happy for Weimann and Butterfield to open their accounts. Especially Weimann as it's been quite clear he's needed a goal to get a bit of confidence.

thought Rotherham offered nothing yesterday. I was impressed though that despite them closing us down rapidly for about 60 minutes we still played football and passed and moved. By 70 minutes or so you could tell that their players were drained. The positive in that is that I think last season we'd have struggled, but our movement from our widemen into central positions made it hard to track the runners.

Solid performance in the end without breaking a sweat. Glad Thorne got his booking out the way. Nice rest for Friday's game.
