Ambrose not listed as Tomori features in Derby’s defeat to Millwall


Versatile defender Efe Ambrose couldn’t make his debut for Derby County as they feel 1-0 to Millwall at Pride Park on Wednesday night, reports


Efe Ambrose recently signed a short term deal until the end of the season with the Frank Lampard managed team.


There was match action for young defender Fikayo Tomori who played at the heart of Derby’s back four.

Derby could have few complaints after a desperately flat performance despite Ashley Cole making his full debut and Millwall thoroughly deserved the victory secured by Jed Wallace’s second-half strike.

Derby had a chance five minutes into the second when Tomori’s ball put Jack Marriott in between Millwall’s central defenders but he lost his balance and scuffed the shot.

There was a scare for Derby when Wallace skimmed the bar with a cross in the 55th minute but Millwall stunned the home side with a breakaway goal in the 72nd minute.

Jordan Archer punched away a corner in the first of four minutes of added time before he made his first real save to parry a Tomori header and that was Derby’s last chance as boos rang out at the final whistle.
