Derby News and Form
It has been a return of W1 D2 from Derby’s three games this season in the Championship. Their lone win happened on the opening weekend of the season as they got a 2-1 win at Huddersfield. They have followed that up with a home draw against Swansea and an away draw on the weekend against Stoke. All four goals for Derby have come from two players, two each for Tom Lawrence and Martyn Waghorn.
The Rams produced a W13 D7 L3 record at home in last season’s Championship and they are now, including their draw against Swansea this season, on an eight-match undefeated streak of home form in the division, winning four of their last five. On the weekend, they will have been disappointed at not having converted an early lead at Stoke into a win but they instead found themselves needing to come up with an equaliser in the second half.

Who will win – Derby v Bristol City Predictions
This may well be a close game, but we are going to stick with home advantage. It is not easy to go out on the road in such a short space of time after the weekend action. So because of that, we have to side slightly with the Rams at home to sneak a win by a one-goal margin.
