Derby County and Stoke City do battle this Saturday at Pride Park in the EFL Championship. Michael O’Neill’s Potters have made a good start, winning four of their opening seven. As for the Rams, they have won just once, though Wayne Rooney’s men did hold high-flying West Bromwich Albion to a draw at The Hawthorns last time out. This promises to be an entertaining encounter in the East Midlands. Check out the latest odds and predictions.

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams secure first home win?

Wayne Rooney’s Derby County have been tipped to struggle this season, but the Rams have made a steady enough start to their campaign. Overall, County have won one, lost two and drawn four of their opening seven. No team have drawn more games in the Championship so far.

Since picking up a 1-0 win over Hull City at the MKM Stadium on 18th August, Derby have failed to win any of their next four. However, they have picked up three draws during that run. Last Tuesday, Derby battled hard to claim a 0-0 draw with West Brom, who were top at the time.

Our betting prediction:
Stoke to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1204 GMT, Friday 17 September)

Having drawn all three of their home league matches this term, Rooney’s men will want all three points from this one at Pride Park. The bookies currently have the home victory available at 15/8.

Stoke City Preview – Will the Potters claim a fifth Championship victory?

Before a ball was kicked this season, many pundits and experts alike tipped Stoke City to have a fine season under the popular Michael O’Neill. The Potters have lived up to those expectation early doors, winning four of their opening seven in the Championship.

Stoke have won six times in nine league and cup matches this season. After a 3-0 loss at Fulham before the international break, which is their only defeat, City have bounced back with a win over Huddersfield Town and a draw against Barnsley.

Derby County vs Stoke City Betting Advice

Derby failed to score in their two Championship meetings with Stoke last season. After a goalless draw at Pride Park in December, Stoke edged a tight affair at the bet365 in March thanks to a Jacob Brown goal. However, in January 2020, Derby thumped the Potters 4-0 at Pride Park, with Martyn Waghorn, Chris Martin, Wayne Rooney and Jayden Bogle getting the goals.


Key Facts – Derby County vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Derby have drawn all three of their home league matches so far
  • Stoke have won four of their opening seven in the league
  • The Potters picked up four points from the two meetings last term


Derby have not been as easy to beat as some had precited this season so far, but this will be another tough test for Rooney and his Rams. Stoke have Premier League aspirations, and we fancy the Potters to return to winning ways this weekend. There is good value in 3/1 for the visitors to win to nil.

Sam Surridge has scored four league and cup goals this term, including one in Stoke’s 1-1 midweek draw with Barnsley. Surridge is priced at 11/2 to net first in this one, too.
