Derby County Preview – Can the Rams seal a crucial three points?

Wayne Rooney’s first official game as Derby County boss ended in a 1-0 home loss to Rotherham. The Millers frustrated Rooney and his Rams yet again last time out, with County crashing to a heavy 3-0 defeat at the New York Stadium.

However, in the middle of those two losses to Rotherham, Derby picked up successive victories over Bournemouth, Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City (all by a 1-0 scoreline). Overall, Rooney has won three and lost two of five Championship games since taking over at Pride Park on a permanent basis.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1309 GMT, Friday 12 February)

Derby’s fixture at Barnsley last Saturday was called off due to the weather, so the Rams start this weekend in the bottom three. The Midlands club have had a tough season on the whole, winning seven, drawing seven and losing 13 of 27 league matches.

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Warnock’s boys end winless run?

Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough head to Pride Park having failed to win any of their last four. Since a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, Boro have lost to Blackburn Rovers, Rotherham and Brentford, and have picked up a draw with Norwich City.

Despite their wobbly run of form, Middlesbrough are still within touching distance of the top six. Boro are in seventh place with 40 points to their name. The North Yorkshire club are five points behind Bournemouth, who currently occupy the final play-off spot.

Derby County vs Middlesbrough Betting Advice

Middlesbrough were far too strong for Derby in the reverse fixture at the Riverside Stadium back in November. An own goal and strikes from Britt Assombalonga and Marvin Johnson gave Boro a routine 3-0 home win. However, prior to that, three of the previous four ended all square.
