Derby County Preview – Can Derby get going?

Derby County and manager, Philip Cocu, find themselves under early pressure to start getting results as The Rams have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Championship and the hosts occupy a place in the lower reaches of the second tier prior to the visit of Blackburn Rovers this Saturday.

After seemingly being on track for a top six finish and a place in the play-offs towards the end of last season (following a five-match winning streak), Derby then imploded and managed just one further win from their final six matches of the season to finish in a disappointing 10th place.

The jury therefore still remains out on manager, Cocu, and another defeat on Saturday to Blackburn could see the pressure intensified. Derby’s season last term was underpinned by a solid record at home but the hosts have lost their last three matches on the trot, including a 2-0 loss to Reading early on in this campaign.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Blackburn take advantage?

Ultimately, it was another season to forget for Blackburn Rovers fans as their side finished in a disappointing 11th place in the Championship table after briefly flirting with the play-off pack in March.

A five-match unbeaten run saw Rovers pick up wins against Hull City and Charlton Athletic as well as picking up points in draws with Brentford, Stoke City and Swansea City which lifted Blackburn up into 8th place and just three points shy of the play-off pack, but Tony Mowbray’s side also imploded and won just a further three matches out of their final 10 matches of the campaign.

The visitors have continued their inconsistent streak this season too as they lost 3-2 away at Bournemouth on the opening day of the season but bounced back with an emphatic 5-0 home win over early Championship strugglers, Wycombe Wanderers, but could face a tougher task against Derby at Pride Park this Saturday.
