Derby County Preview – Can the Rams stretch unbeaten run to six?

On the whole, Derby County have had a woeful season so far. The Rams have spent pretty much the entirety of their Championship campaign in the bottom three, collecting a mere 13 points from 18 games. No side have won fewer matches, with the Rams picking up just two wins so far.

However, since England legend Wayne Rooney took over first-team duties on an interim basis, Derby’s results and performances have started to improve. In fact, County are unbeaten in five, though four of those have ended in draws. After a 1-0 win at Millwall, the Midlands club have held Brentford and Stoke City to goalless draws in their last two.

Our betting prediction:
Swansea to win to nil

(odds taken 1450 GMT, Tuesday 15 December)

Despite their upswing in fortunes, Derby remain in the bottom three with over a third of the season now gone. Can County secure a massive three points on their own patch on Wednesday night?

Swansea City Preview – Swans to return to South Wales with all three points?

Swansea City have made a superb start under the popular Steve Cooper. Ahead of this round of fixtures, the Swans are nicely placed in third, amassing an impressive 33 points from a possible 54.

Swansea picked up an excellent win over rivals Cardiff City in the South Wales derby last Saturday. The visitors were very good at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Jamal Lowe’s brace giving Cooper’s boys a deserved 2-0 win.

Derby have definitely shown a vast improvement in recent weeks. Rooney has made them harder to beat, while County have kept three clean sheets in a row. However, Swansea have looked outstanding at times this season, and we fancy the Welsh side to leave Pride Park with maximum points. Take a punt on City to win -1 at 15/4.

Jamal Lowe was Swansea’s hero in the derby last week, netting both goals in the 2-0 win. Put some money on the 26-year-old to score anytime in this one at 11/4.
