Referee:

A controversial first half goal proved the difference between the team at The Den as Derby County were beaten 2-1 by Millwall. A low ball into the area from Chris Taylor found Andy Keogh in an offside position but he missed the ball before Liam Feeney converted the chance at the far post despite the flag being up. After discussions between the referee and his assistant the goal was given as Keogh was adjudged to have not been interfering with play despite being inches from the ball and stood in the goalmouth as the shot went in. Millwall had the better of the first half but Derby came out strongly in the second and Will Hughes thumped home an effort from twenty-five yards to level the scores seven minutes after the break. Millwall were in the ascendancy in the closing stages and took the points when The Rams failed to clear their lines and Andy Keogh curled home from inside the area to secure the victory but it was the first-half goal that was the major talking point.

Derby were unchanged as they went looking for a their victory in a row but it was Millwall who were on top in the early stages and Liam Trotter forced Adam Legzdins into a save before Chris Taylor's low cross fizzed across goal but was just too far ahead of Chris Wood at the far post. Wood continued to be a threat and had a low shot well saved before heading over from a corner.

The Rams' backline stood strong and Derby were looking to establish themselves as an attacking force when they fell behind to a controversial decision. Taylor escaped down the left and his low cross into the area was missed by Keogh but Liam Feeney fired into the roof of the net. The assistant referee raised his flag for offside against Keogh but after discussions with the referee the goal was given as the striker was adjudged to have not been interfering with play. Paul Coutts was denied a penalty before halftime when he went down under a challenge from Mark Beevers but the appeals were waived away as Millwall lead at the break,

John Brayford made a good challenge at the start of the second period when he took the ball off the toe of Andy Keogh as he was set to shoot and Conor Sammon made room for himself at the other end but his effort from outside the area flew over the top. Derby were taking the game to their hosts and they pulled themselves level seven minutes into the half when Will Hughes crashed an effort into the top corner from twenty-five yards giving David Forde no chance in the Millwall goal.

Richard Keogh cleared an effort off the line after Wood beat Legzdins with a low shot and the striker side-footed wide of the near post after a cross from Scott Malone. With the pressure building the home side re-took the lead with fourteen minutes to go, the ball was not cleared from inside their area and Keogh curled an effort into the corner beyond Legzdins. Michael Jacobs was introduced with just under ten minutes to go and looked lively, he cut in and fizzed an effort at goal from twenty yards but Forde was equal to it and The Rams could not find a second equaliser as they fell to a second defeat on the trot away from home.
