Out-of-sorts Derby County welcome unpredictable Cardiff City to Pride Park on Wednesday for an intriguing EFL Championship fixture. The Rams have made a woeful start to their league season, with the pressure really starting to mount on boss Phillip Cocu. The Bluebirds have been superb on the road so far, taking seven points from a possible nine and keeping three clean sheets to boot. Will Cardiff pile more misery on Derby in midweek?

Derby County Preview – Pressure to crank up on Cocu

Derby County have been poor so far, taking a measly four points from a possible 21. Only Sheffield Wednesday – who had a points deduction – and Wycombe Wanderers are below the Rams in the current Championship standings.

Derby lost their opening three before securing a shock 1-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road. They then went on to lose their next two. So far, County have been beaten by Reading, Luton Town, Blackburn Rovers, Watford and Huddersfield Town. However, they did hold rivals Nottingham Forest to a 1-1 draw at the City Ground last Friday night.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1453 GMT, Tuesday 27 October)

Derby have not won at home since beating Reading 2-1 back in June. The Rams have lost every home league match this term, scoring no goals and shipping seven at the other end. They could be in for another miserable night on home soil on Wednesday.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to keep up unbeaten away start?

Neil Harris’ Cardiff City have blown hot and cold up until now. The Bluebirds, who are usually so formidable at home, have taken just two points from a possible 12 at the Cardiff City Stadium, losing two and drawing two.

On the road, though, things have been far different for the side from South Wales. Cardiff have won two and drawn one of three away from the Welsh capital, beating Nottingham Forest and Preston North End and drawing with Blackburn Rovers. Also, City have yet to concede a goal on their travels.
