Wayne Rooney’s Derby County and Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United meet at Pride Park this Saturday in the EFL Championship. The Rams may be rock bottom of the league table, but Rooney’s men have been tough to beat this term. The Blades have shown a big improvement of late, winning four in a row in the Championship to fire themselves into play-off contention. Check out the latest betting odds and top tips in our in-depth preview.

Derby County Preview – Will the Rams make home advantage count?

Derby County look to be heading for EFL League One after suffering points deductions due to administration. The Midlands club are in 24th spot with 11 points to their name.

In terms of results, however, Derby have had a pretty good season in the circumstances. Wayne Rooney’s side have picked up seven wins, drawn 11 times and lost just seven. Only the current top four have suffered fewer defeats.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 0915 GMT, Friday 14 January)

Derby head into this one unbeaten in four in the league. After successive wins over Blackpool, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City, the Rams came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Reading in their last league outing. Can Derby extend their undefeated run this Saturday?

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades make it five on the bounce?

Things did not quite work out for Sheffield United under Slavisa Jokanovic, and the former Watford and Fulham manager was relieved of his duties after a 1-0 win at Reading on 23rd November. Paul Heckingbottom – who was in charge of the Blades in the Premier League for a bit last season – was swiftly appointed new boss.

Heckingbottom hit the ground running, guiding the Sheffield club to consecutive Championship wins over Bristol City, Cardiff City and Fulham. They still have work to do, but United could be a dark horse in the race for the play-offs this season.

Derby County vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

These two sides have already met twice this season. In the EFL Cup back in August, goals from Luke Freeman and Billy Sharp gave Sheffield United a 2-1 home victory. The following month, Sharp’s last-gasp penalty earned the Blades a 1-0 Championship win at Bramall Lane. United have won the last three meetings.


Key Facts – Derby County vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Derby have taken ten points from the last 12 on offer
  • Sheffield United have won four league games on the spin
  • The Rams have won just one of the previous six meetings


Both teams go into this one in good form in the Championship. Sheffield United, who have won four league games in a row, are the bookies’ favourites at Pride Park, but we fancy the Rams to hold the Blades to a draw. The draw at half time and full time is nicely priced at 15/4.

Billy Sharp has already netted twice against Derby this term. Overall, the veteran striker has helped himself to seven league and cup goals. Take a punt on Sharp to score first in this one at 11/2.
