Derby County Preview – Can Rooney inspire vital Rams win?

This upcoming clash against Sheffield Wednesday will undoubtedly be the biggest of Derby manager, Wayne Rooney’s short managerial career to date as he looks to guide his side to Championship safety with a win on the final day of the season.

Although Derby are sitting just above the relegation zone and three points above Sheffield Wednesday, a defeat here could send The Rams down as Sheffield Wednesday possess a better goal difference, so the equation is easy for the hosts – win and stay up.

However, having lost their last six matches on the trot, Derby face a tough task here despite holding home advantage as The Rams have lost their last two matches at home on the trot, losing to Norwich City and Birmingham City but with just three defeats out of their last 10 games, the hosts should at least avoid defeat here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Owls swoop?

Having had to battle against a six-point deduction throughout the whole of this Championship campaign, Sheffield Wednesday have done well to take their relegation battle down to the wire on this final day of the season in a potential ‘winner-takes-all’ clash at Pride Park.

The Owls have looked dead and buried at various points in the season but have fought gallantly against the drop by picking up the odd win here and there and picking up points in draws against Bristol City and Nottingham Forest of late to keep them afloat.

However, The Owls have lost eight of their last nine matches on their travels with their only respite being a Yorkshire derby 2-1 win at Barnsley but they’ve since slumped to three losses on the trot on the road at Watford, QPR and Middlesbrough respectively.
