Derby County Preview – Can the Rams start with a win?

Derby County had a miserable time last season, with the points deductions taking its toll on the club, and the Rams were relegated to League One. Despite the off-field issues, County remained competitive, but they ran out of steam in the end.

Derby have made a whole host of superb signings this summer in the hope for an instant return to the Championship. The likes of Conor Hourihane, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Tom Barkhuizen, David McGoldrick and Korey Smith have all arrived of free transfers. Several players have left, also.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

On paper, Derby might just have the strongest starting XI in the league, but the squad must click together instantly. The Rams victory on Saturday is priced at 6/5.

Oxford United Preview – Can the U’s cause an upset at Pride Park?

Karl Robinson’s Oxford United have been pushing for promotion over the past few seasons but keep coming up short. Will this be the year the Yellows finally reach the second tier? The U’s are certainly up there with the strongest teams in the division and there is a real togetherness at the Kassam Stadium.

Oxford looked a good bet to reach the top six at times last term, but United had a poor run of four defeats from their last seven games, which put paid to their play-off hopes. Robinson’s boys ended up in eighth.
