Struggling for game time

In what is his second stint at the Memorial Stadium, Mitchell-Lawson has found game time difficult to come by.

So far, the 21-year-old has played just seven times across all competitions. In the process, he provided two assists, playing his last game for the Gas on November 3rd.

Returning to Pride Park

With a move back to Derby on the cards, it will be interesting to see what the Rams look to do with the young attacker.

Mitchell-Lawson has played two senior games for Derby County, playing most of his games for their youth sides.

The attacking midfielder played 45 times for the club’s Under-18s before moving up to the Under-23s. With Derby’s second-string side, Mitchell-Lawson has scored three times and laid on three assists in 37 games.
