Derby County Preview – Can the Rams pick up a precious three points?

Derby County are running out of time to save their Championship lives. The Rams are bang in trouble, as they are six points away from 21st-place Reading, though they do have a game in hand on the Royals.

Wayne Rooney’s men have lost five of their last six matches. In midweek, they let a half-time lead slip to lose 3-1 to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Our betting prediction:
Coventry to be winning at half time

(odds taken 0937 GMT, Friday 18 March)

Despite the ongoing issues off and on the pitch, the Rams have managed to remain solid at Pride Park of late. County have won seven of their previous ten home matches. Only Millwall have won on their patch since November.

Derby will be desperate to make home advantage count on Saturday, as they need to get back on track right away. The home victory is being priced at 31/20.

Coventry City Preview – Will the Sky Blues claim a third away win in five?

Mark Robins’ Coventry City have had an excellent season so far, punching well above their weight as they look to sneak into the play-offs come May. They have gone off the boil in the second half of the campaign, but the Sky Blues are still well and truly in the mix for promotion.

Coventry have an indifferent record away from home this season. However, they have only lost three times on the road in the league since October. In their last away match, though, Swansea City beat them 3-1 in South Wales.
