Derby County Preview – Can the Rams record a huge win?

This season has been a real struggle for Derby. However, despite their off-field issues, the Rams have remained competitive. Without the points deduction, County would be well clear of the bottom three.

Derby head into this one having lost three Championship matches on the spin. They beat Peterborough United on 19th February, but losses to Millwall, Luton Town and Cardiff City have followed. The Midlands club are now eight points away from safety in 23rd.

Our betting prediction:
Barnsley to score first

(odds taken 0919 GMT, Friday 4 March)

Time is running out for Wayne Rooney and his men, and the recent slump in form has not helped their cause. Nevertheless, can they get their survival bid back on track with a monumental three points this weekend?

Barnsley Preview – Will the Tykes continue their run?

Barnsley reached the play-offs last season but have had a miserable 2021-22 Championship campaign so far. The Tykes have spent practically all season in the bottom three and no club have won fewer games.

However, Poya Asbaghi’s troops are starting to show signs of life, collecting nine points from the last 12 on offer. In recent weeks, the Tykes have picked up vital victories over the likes of Queens Park Rangers, Hull City and Middlesbrough. They still have an awful lot of work to do, but there have been encouraging signs for the Barnsley faithful.
