Leeds News and Form

Leeds fell to back to back league losses as they went down against Nottingham Forest in their last league outing. So they need to pick themselves back up having lost in the FA Cup as well on the weekend. Back in the Championship Leeds are W8 D3 L2 at Elland Road this season so that is strong. They were on a four-match home winning streak before losing to Hull in their most recent home fixture. That reverse against Hull is their only loss in their last eight league home games though. Just 38% of league games at Elland Road this season have gone over 2.5 goals

Leeds have averaged 1.6 goals per home game this season, while they have managed to pick up a clean sheet in 46% of their home games. Only on two occasions have they not scored in a home game this season. In none of their last eleven games home and away have the Whites been involved in a drawn fixture. Leeds have been level at halftime in six of their thirteen home games and they have scored 71% of their home goals in the second half of games. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last four league games, but only Middlesbrough have conceded fewer Championship goals than Leeds. They do have the best home record of all Championship sides currently.

Derby News and Form

The Rams earned a point in a draw against Middlesbrough in their most recent league game. They have collected only the one defeat in their last seven league outings now and their away record stands at W6 D2 L5. In the four away games this season which they have played against current top four sides, Derby are W2 D1 L1. Derby won their last away game, a 4-3 win at second-placed Norwich which was a big result for them. It has left them with a trend of alternating between a win and a draw in their last five league games. 62% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and they have managed only the one clean sheet on their travels in the second tier.

Derby have averaged 1.5 goals per away game this season and both teams have scored in 77% of their away games. They are currently running on an eight-match scoring streak on their travels in the Championship. Derby have taken a bit of a battering at the back recently as they have conceded exactly three goals in both of their last two away fixtures. Home and away combined the Rams haven’t gotten a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road. Will that record come back to cost them dearly at Elland Road on Friday night?

Leeds v Derby Tips & Odds

Both teams to score 4/6

Leeds v Derby Predictions

Draw: It’s just going a little bit wrong for Leeds at the moment both in the league and in the FA Cup on the weekend. Maybe this is a good time for the Rams to be going there. The draw looks a decent enough outcome.
