Derby County Preview – Can the Rams end with a home win?

Derby County’s woes off the pitch were compounded when relegation to League One was confirmed. The Rams’ long stay in the second tier is over, as the club failed to recover from the points deductions.

To their credit, Wayne Rooney’s County remained competitive on the pitch all season. Derby picked up 14 wins, drew 13 times and suffered 18 losses. In the current bottom half of the table, only Blackpool, Swansea City and Preston North End have lost fewer.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to score first

(odds taken 0937 GMT, Friday 6 May)

Derby picked up an impressive win last time out, with goals from Malcolm Ebiowei and Eiran Cashin securing a 2-0 victory at Bloomfield Road. Can they follow that up with three points on Saturday?

Cardiff City Preview – Will the Bluebirds’ winless run go on?

Before a ball was kicked this season, Cardiff City were among the bookies’ favourites for a top-six finish. However, it all went horribly wrong for Mick McCarthy, who lost eight in a row at the end of his tenure with the Bluebirds.

Steve Morison took over on a caretaker boss and was given the job full time after impressing the board. The ex-Wales international striker has certainly steadied the ship in South Wales. However, the club from the Welsh capital will be looking for a far brighter season next time around.

Cardiff have been poor away from home in recent months, losing six of the last eight in the league and cup. Nonetheless, can Morison guide City to an end-of-season win at Pride Park?
