Derby County Prediction

Derby County dropped out of the play-off pack following Bristol City’s point against Ipswich in a 1-1 draw on Tuesday night, but this expected to be a temporary arrangement as Derby are level on 55 points with Bristol City but they take on a poor Stoke City outfit at Pride Park tonight in a match where The Rams are expected to get at least a point.

A few of the teams sitting in or around the top six are stuttering right now and Derby County have been no exception as they recently suffered three defeats on the trot with losses to Millwall, Nottingham Forest and a heavy 4-0 defeat at Aston Villa, but they’ve got back on track with a 2-1 home win over Wigan Athletic and drew 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday in their last two matches.

Derby’s hopes of a top six finish are firmly pinned upon their form at Pride Park where they’ve posted a record of 9-6-3 25/18 to date and have lost just one of their last nine matches. That defeat came in a surprising 1-0 loss to Championship strugglers, Millwall, but wins over Reading, Hull and Wigan in recent times have kept Frank Lampard’s side on track for the play-offs.

 

Key-Facts – Derby County v Stoke City

  • Derby County have lost just 1 of their last 9 at home in the Championship
  • Derby County have won 3 of their last 5 matches at Pride Park
  • Stoke City haven’t won an away match from their last 10 on their travels

 

Stoke City Prediction

Onto Stoke City, and the big questions is, have Stoke turned a corner under manager Nathan Jones? Recent results suggest that they are slowly turning their form around as The Potters are unbeaten in their last five matches overall in the Championship.

However, with four of these five matches being draws with Wigan Athletic, Ipswich Town and QPR (away from home) and a stalemate at home against Aston Villa, with just one win during this period with a 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest, the cynics could suggest that they’re performing no differently before former manager Gary Rowett was sacked!

There’s a feeling that Stoke’s players have downed tools and the visitors are simply just treading water until the start of next season, while Stoke’s away record stands at a draw-heavy 2-11-5 17/24.

The visitors are without an away win from their last 10 matches on their travels, but beware, seven of these have ended in stalemates.

Betting Tips Verdict

The draw must be kept onside here, but back Derby County with the draw no bet option in this one.
