Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 11th December 19.45pm

Despite languishing in the bottom half of the table, not many teams in the EFL Championship have a better home record than Derby County this season. Can Phillip Cocu’s men secure another home victory when Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday visit Pride Park this Wednesday night? The Rams may be excellent at home these days, but the Owls head to the Midlands as the slight favourites with the bookies.

Derby County News and Form – Another home win for the Rams?

The Rams go into this one having taken just one point from their last three. Since beating Preston North End 1-0 at Pride Park last month, Derby County have drawn with Queens Park Rangers and lost to Fulham and Blackburn Rovers.

Phillip Cocu has struggled to make an impact at Derby since arriving in the summer. County have won just six of 20 Championship matches, drawing seven and losing seven of the other 14. The Rams languish down in 16th place with just 25 points to their name.

Nevertheless, Cocu’s men have been superb on their own patch lately. County had won five home league games in a row before their recent 1-1 draw with QPR. Only six clubs have picked up more home points thus far. Will Derby make home advantage count in this one?

Key-Facts – Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday

  • Wednesday go into this one having won their last two to move up to sixth

 

Sheffield Wednesday News and Form – Can Wednesday leave Pride Park with all three points?

After going five league matches without a win (three draws, two defeats), Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday have secured back-to-back victories. After an impressive 3-1 triumph at The Valley, a Steven Fletcher brace proved to be enough to give the Owls a 2-1 home win over Brentford last time out.

Wednesday have been hard to beat under Monk, with only Hull City, Blackburn Rovers and West Bromwich Albion getting the better of them since his arrival at Hillsborough. The club from the Steel City have been pretty solid on the road, winning four of ten away encounters, with just seven teams having a better away record.

Sheffield Wednesday are sitting nicely in sixth place at the moment, taking 32 points from 20 Championship fixtures. Can Monk’s Owls add another three points to that tally with victory at Pride Park on Wednesday evening?

Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

Derby County win: The Rams’ recent 1-1 draw with QPR stopped a run of five straight home wins. Cocu’s troops have certainly found the winning formula at Pride Park, though their away form has been atrocious.

Sheffield Wednesday’s pre-season plans were ripped up when Steve Bruce left for Newcastle United in the summer, but Monk has got the club heading in the right direction again. The Owls are in the play-offs ahead of this round of fixtures.

In truth, this one could go either way, but we can see Derby making home advantage count on Wednesday. Back County to come out on top at 21/10.

Tom Lawrence has definitely got an eye for goal, scoring five times in the Championship already this season. The Wales international is available at 5/2 to score anytime in this one.
