Derby will be looking for some home cheer on the weekend as they play host to Barnsley in League One.

The Rams won their opening game of the new season, which was on home turf.

But after a setback on the road last weekend, they need a response.

Saturday’s opponents Barnsley are in the exact same boat with three points from two matches.

Derby Preview – Can Rams deliver home form?

The Rams started their League One season on home turf with a 1-0 win over Oxford.

After taking a bitter drop from the Championship last term, that was a good start.

But they were brought down to earth, with a 1-0 loss at Charlton last weekend.

In the match outright for football betting, Derby are 17/20 for the win* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill).

The Rams went W11 D7 L5 at home last season up in the Championship.

That’s something translatable for this campaign in a lower tier.

It’s been a rocky road for the Rams for a while now.

But there is some good news for them in the head-to-head front against Barnsley.

The Rams have won all but one of their last seven league encounters at home against the Tykes.

Our betting prediction:
Derby to win by a 1 goal margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill)


There is further to add to that head-to-head trend as well as a positive for Derby.

They have netted at least two goals in 6 of their last 7 against them at Pride Park.

Given that both of Derby’s league matches this season have ended 1-0 though, under 2.5 goals looks the way to go.

Pushing that line for football betting, Under 1.5 goals is at 2/1* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill).

Given that the Rams have won 12 of their last 15 home matches in league competition, they should have a sniff of a victory.


Barnsley Preview – Can Tykes raid Pride Park?

Barnsley are also W1 L1 this season just like Derby are, their win also coming at home.

The Tykes started with a 1-0 loss at Plymouth.

They turned around that form then by beating Cheltenham 1-0 at Oakwell on their follow-up.

On Saturday they do go to the Midlands as the 7/2 match underdogs* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill).

As mentioned already their head-to-head form away at Derby is nothing to write home about.

Barnsley (again like Derby), were also relegated from the Championship last season.

So they have met recently and both teams have scored in just one of their last four meetings.

This just has the look of being a fairly tight scrap between the two clubs.

Barnsley’s Championship season last term was just about as miserable as it could have got.

They won just six matches all season, losing their last five in a row.

In their 46 league matches last season in the second tier, Barnsley scored just 33 times.

Last weekend’s victory will no doubt have given them a huge lift.

It was their only win posted in their last eleven league fixtures.


Derby vs Barnsley Betting Advice

The Tykes have some way to go in order to back up a narrow home win by collecting three points on the road.

The visitors are likely to just come up a bit short at Pride Park on the weekend.

Barnsley’s record there is not good so the Derby 17/20 match outright option is first for our betting tips* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Derby vs Barnsley Betting Tip

  • Derby have won six of their last seven at Pride Park against Barnsley
  • Derby have won 12 of their last 15 league home fixtures
  • Barnsley and Derby were relegated from the Championship last season


We can only imagine this being a tight, low-scoring fixture and that means there could be several ways to go.

The Under 1.5 goals option is certainly on the radar, however, we are going a different way.

The Derby to win by a 1 goal margin at 5/2 is the other football tip, as there is more to play at there* (odds recorded 21:56 GMT on 12th August 2022 at William Hill).
