Pride Park Stadium
Relief is the overriding emotion following the 2-1 win away at Preston which brought a run of five straight defeats to an end. The latest opponents in this difficult congested period are Millwall. They have been on a good run, and beat The Rams 2-0 in London earlier on in the season.
Rams striker Chris Porter believes that his Derby teammates will have regained some belief following the 2-1 away success against Preston, when he scored two goals: 'The lads were down after the Forest game, but the confidence is up again now and we're all looking forward to Monday and hopefully we can get another three points.'
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has praised his side for drubbing Crystal Palace 3-0 and wants to extend his side's unbeaten run at Pride Park: 'It was a pleasing result against Crystal Palace, and I was also particularly pleased with some of the football we produced in the game, which is not always easy in derby matches,' said Kenny.
'We are on a bit of a run at the moment and obviously we want to keep that going. We want to build on this result and display at Derby.'
Dean Moxey has completed a one-match ban and is back in contention for a left-back place, but Gareth Roberts performed well so is likely to keep his place. Two-goal striker Chris Porter may be rested after coming back from injury following a long lay-off. Miles Addison and Steven Davies are both being eased back.
Spanish loan star Bueno has been on his best form at home, and having been rested against Preston he will hopefully be refreshed and back to his brilliant best.
Steve Morison may miss out on the game having been laid low for his side's New Year's Day fixture. He has always performed well against The Rams. Alan Dunne is suspended, while central defenders Paul Robinson and Dan Shittu both have niggles and could miss out.
Winger Puncheon has notched five goals in seven games during his loan period from Southampton, including a hat-trick in the 3-0 win over local rivals Crystal Palace.
