Derby County Preview – Can the Rams claim a colossal three points?

Derby County have had a tough time on and off the pitch this season. Having picked up just 11 wins from 39 matches and suffering a 21-point deduction, the Rams find themselves bottom of the table with a handful of games to play. County are currently eight points away from 21st-place Reading.

Derby have been in poor form of late, winning just one of their last seven. To make matters worse, five of the other six have been defeats. Before the international break, Rooney’s boys did manage to hold Coventry City to a 1-1 draw at Pride Park.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1012 GMT, Friday 1 April)

Derby have been extremely hard to beat on their own patch in recent months, with just Millwall leaving Pride Park with all three points since November.

Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites bounce back from Luton defeat?

Ryan Lowe has done a steady job at Deepdale since taking over in December. Preston North End have been a tough nut to crack, with just Swansea City, Reading and Luton Town getting the better of Lowe’s Lilywhites in the Championship.

After going four games unbeaten (one win, three draws), Preston were uncharacteristically poor in the 4-0 mauling at Luton before the break. That was North End’s heaviest defeat of the season.
