Derby County and Barnsley meet at Pride Park in the EFL Championship on Saturday. This is a must-win game for the Rams, who have lost six of their opening ten league fixtures. Valerien Ismael has made a strong start at Oakwell – can the new Tykes boss guide the club to three wins from four games? Take a look at the latest odds and tips in our betting preview.

Derby County Preview – Massive three points for the Rams?

Derby County have struggled this season, winning only one of their ten league fixtures. No side in the Championship have won fewer games up until now. The Rams are only off the bottom of the table due to Sheffield Wednesday’s point deduction.

Derby’s one and only win was an impressive one, however, as a late Wayne Rooney free-kick gave them a 1-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road. Since then, though, County have lost three and drawn three of six. After three consecutive 1-1 draws, Derby were beaten 1-0 at home by Queens Park Rangers last Wednesday.

Our betting prediction:
Derby to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1355 GMT, Friday 6 November)

Phillip Cocu could really do with maximum points from this one, with the pressure really starting to mount on the Dutchman. Despite their lowly league position and poor form, the Rams are the slight favourites in this one.

Barnsley Preview – Second away reverse in a week for the Tykes?

Barnsley failed to win any of their opening seven Championship matches, picking up four draws and suffering three defeats. Gerhard Struber left for America, so the Tykes moved quickly to bring in Valerien Ismael.

The Frenchman started his reign at Oakwell in stunning style, guiding his new side to a 3-0 home win over QPR before shocking Watford with a 1-0 victory at Oakwell. Unfortunately, Barnsley’s winning run stopped at two, as the Yorkshire side were comprehensively beaten at the Cardiff City Stadium in midweek.
