Derby County Preview – Can the Rams cause an upset?

Derby County have improved since Wayne Rooney inherited the managerial reigns on a permanent basis, but the Rams could do with a win after a poor run of results. Since a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town in February, County have drawn two and lost three of the last five.

Derby’s 1-0 loss to Millwall last time out was their first home defeat since January. Prior to that, the Midlands outfit had secured successive home league wins over Bournemouth, Bristol City, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town, and drawn 1-1 with rivals Nottingham Forest.

Our betting prediction:
Ivan Toney to score first

(odds taken 1412 GMT, Tuesday 15 March)

Derby are still looking dangerously over their shoulder in the battle for survival. The Rams are only seven points above 22nd-place Rotherham United, who currently have four games in hand. Can Rooney’s men cause an upset and pick up a crucial three points from this home fixture?

Brentford Preview – Bees to make it four wins from five?

Since consecutive Championship defeats to Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers and Coventry City, Brentford have bounced back with three wins from their following four. After a 1-0 loss at Norwich City, Thomas Frank’s men picked up a much-needed 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers last Friday.

Things are extremely tight in the race for automatic promotion. Norwich are running away with the league, but there is hardly anything to split Watford, Swansea City and Brentford right now. The Bees are currently three points behind the pair with a game in hand on the Hornets.

Derby County vs Brentford Betting Advice

Key Facts – Derby County vs Brentford Betting Tip

  • Brentford are unbeaten in four against Derby, winning two and drawing two
  • Only runaway leaders Norwich have picked up more away points than the Bees
  • Derby have won just one of their previous seven in the Championship


Derby are still very much embroiled in a relegation scrap, so Rooney’s boys could do with a win sooner rather than later. However, with Brentford right back on track, Tuesday’s clash will be a tricky one for County. We fancy the away team to leave the Midlands with a huge three points.

Despite their lofty league position, Brentford have not kept too many clean sheets this season. With that in mind, check out the tempting odds of 7/2 for the Brentford win and both teams to score at Pride Park.
