LIONS 'REJECTS' SHOWING TEETH.

Byline: DARREN WITCOOP

DERBY v MILLWALL

Championship: Pride Park, 3pm

NEIL HARRIS says Milwall's band of cast-offs are being driven on to prove they can cut it in the Championship.

The Lions boss is reaping the rewards for handing second chances to a crop of out-of-favour players.

Jed Wallace and George Saville were rescued from big-spending Wolves, while Shaun Hutchinson and Jake Cooper were picked up from Fulham and Reading respectively.

And Harris (below) said: "We show every week my players are on the rise and can compete. They've all been at other Championship clubs, and now have a point to prove.

"They've come here, they want to strive to be better, and prove people wrong."

Gary Rowett believes Derbycannot afford any complacency today. The Rams boss said: "There's never a time when you've made a 'statement' after a win as you can lose the next couple.

"We have to make sure we follow up victory against Aston Villa and make sure it doesn't go to waste."
