Derby County Preview – Can Derby make final push?

A disappointing 2-0 defeat away from home at The Hawthorns against West Brom saw Derby County suffer their first defeat in the Championship for six matches, and The Rams will be hoping they can return to winning ways when they return to Pride Park this Saturday against Brentford.

Derby had previously won five of their six matches beforehand with victories over Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn Rovers, Millwall, Reading and Preston North End but although the east midlands club continue to hover outside the play-off pack, the hosts still haven’t managed to break into the top six yet.

There have been positive improvements on the road of late, but it’s Derby’s form at Pride Park which gives them the best chance of a possible play-off spot as the hosts bring a solid nine-match unbeaten run into this clash, but they’ll be facing a tough outfit in the shape of Brentford – goals could be at a premium too as 14 of Derby’s 21 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals to date.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Brentford Preview – Can Brentford stay the pace?

The top two clubs in the Championship, Leeds United and West Brom, are certainly setting a blistering pace at the top of the division and Brentford must grab all three points here at Pride Park against a solid Derby County outfit if they’re to have any chance of maintaining their claims for automatic promotion.

This looks a tough call for the visitors even though The Bees have racked up an impressive six wins on the trot in the second tier which has helped lift Brentford into 3rd place, but can they sustain this sort of momentum for much longer?

Despite possessing a rather inconsistent looking away record of 9-4-8 33/18, Brentford have also improved on the road in recent times as they’ve lost just one of their last eight matches on their travels, although they too face a tough test against this Derby outfit in their own backyard – 11 of Brentford’s 21 away matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
