Derby County and Swansea City meet in an EFL Championship fixture at Pride Park on Saturday. After the midweek win, the Rams have moved on to one point. However, Wayne Rooney’s men are still seven points adrift of safety after the points deduction. The Swans have made a poor start, collecting only ten points from a possible 30. This is a huge game for both teams, but who will come out on top at Pride Park? Read our in-depth betting preview for the latest odds and best predictions.

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams remain unbeaten on home turf?

Despite all the off-field issues, Derby County have made a decent fist of things on the pitch so far. After ten games played, the Rams have won three, lost three and drawn four. Without a points deduction, County would be around mid-table right now.

Derby head into this one having won two of their last three. After a 2-1 home victory over Stoke City on 18th September, the Rams were narrowly beaten at Sheffield United last weekend. They bounced back with a big three points in midweek, as a Craig Forsyth goal gave Derby a 1-0 win over Reading at Pride Park.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1423 GMT, Friday 1 October)

Wayne Rooney’s troops are unbeaten at home this season and have won two on the spin at Pride Park. The hosts are priced at 31/20 to get the points in this one.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans respond from the midweek reverse?

Since taking over from Steve Cooper in the summer, former MK Dons boss Russell Martin has had a tough time at Swansea City. So far, the Swans have picked up just two wins from their opening ten league fixtures. The Welsh side are down in 19th as a consequence.

Swansea had drawn three and won one of four league matches before their midweek trip to Craven Cottage. They could not cope with Aleksandar Mitrovic, though, as the Serbia international bagged a first-half hat-trick in a 3-1 Cottagers win.
