Derby News and Form

The Rams were frustrated to a 1-1 home draw by Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend. That leaves them with just one victory in their last six played (D2 L3) in the Championship. There hasn’t been any winning consistency from them for a long time now. Derby are W9 D6 L3 for the season at Pride Park. They have been ticking over alright at home though as they have won three of their last four there (L1). In all of their home wins this season in the Championship, Derby have scored at least two goals. Derby have just one clean sheet in six home games.

Derby haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last six played, home and away. So the defence hasn’t quite been on point recently from Frank Lampard’s men. In total, the Rams have returned a clean sheet in 28% of their home games this season, with both teams having scored at 61% of their home fixtures. Of the nine home wins that Derby have taken this season, none of them have been by a margin of more than two goals. Derby have ended up conceding 61% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.

Stoke News and Form

The Potters picked up a point in a visit to QPR on the weekend, playing out a 1-1 draw. That made it four draws in their last five games (W1). So at least they have been a stubborn side to beat. Out on the road, it has been a hugely disappointing season from them. They have only produced a W2 D11 L5 record on their travels. The last away victory which they took was at the end of October. The Potters are currently on a ten-match winless streak of away form since then. Their last four games have all gone under 2.5 goals. Each of their last eight games home and away, have gone under the goal line.

Stoke have averaged under a goal per game on their travels this season. As a defensive positive they have conceded just one goal in their last three away games. They have only managed to score one in their last four though away from home. The Potters have banked a clean sheet in a third of their road games this season. Of their five away defeats, four of them have been by a two-goal margin. Just on five occasions this season away from home have Stoke opened the scoring in a match. They have the sixth-best defensive record in the second tier currently.

Derby v Stoke Predictions

Draw: It is hard to see past the draw in the match outright in this one. Derby look just strong enough to defend home turf here, while Stoke don’t look like getting beaten at the moment. The 1-1 draw in the match outright may be a solid option.
