Derby County Prediction – Can Derby hit refresh button?

The international break couldn’t have come quick enough for Derby County who were dealt a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Brentford just before the break and Derby manager, Philip Cocu, will be hoping that the break will have refreshed his players as they seek a climb up the Championship table.

The Rams currently occupy 19th place on the Championship ladder and head into Friday night’s clash with Cardiff City without a league win from their last 5 matches, a run that consists of 3 draws and 2 defeats.

Derby had actually started the new campaign in bright fashion as they registered a 2-1 win away at Huddersfield Town, but have since slumped to 5 matches without success with draws against Swansea City, Stoke City and West Brom – two of which currently sit in the top four of the Championship.

However, defeats to Bristol City and Brentford have held Derby back but the hosts have a decent chance of getting something from this clash as Cardiff have yet to win on their travels this season, and the Rams won the previous encounter 3-1 at home.

Cardiff City Prediction – Can Cardiff gain first away win of season?

Although Cardiff City have picked up 2 wins in the Championship so far in this new campaign, it’s been a mixed start to the new season for Neil Warnock’s side as they sit mid-table in 13th place, having won 2, drawn 2 and lost 2 so far this term.

The Bluebirds have made a solid start to the season on home turf though at their Cardiff City Stadium as they’re still unbeaten after 3 matches in their own backyard which includes wins against Luton Town and Huddersfield Town, both by 2-1 margins along with a 1-1 draw with Fulham.

However, results away from home have largely eluded Cardiff as the visitors have suffered back-to-back defeats on the road at Wigan Athletic 3-2 and a 3-0 loss at Reading which were both surprising results for a side that are keen to make a swift return to the Premier League.

The Bluebirds grabbed a point in a 0-0 draw away at Blackburn Rovers last time out on their travels, but the visitors have managed just 2 wins out of their last 8 away matches in the Championship.


Key-Facts – Derby County v Cardiff City

  • Derby County are without a win from 5 matches in the Championship
  • Cardiff have won just 2 out of their last 8 away matches in the Championship
  • Derby County won the previous meeting against Cardiff City 3-1


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite their slow start, Derby can get something from this match against an equally ordinary performing Cardiff side away from home.
