Derby News and Form
The Rams twice had to come from behind at Birmingham to get themselves a draw. They need more than that to really get into a stronger position in the race for a top six finish though. Derby have only suffered the one defeat in their last eight league games (W3 D4). They have won three of their last five league home games (D2). The Rams have only suffered a defeat in their last twelve home fixtures. So that has been a good record from them. This game, on paper, is the easiest one that they have left during their run in.
Derby have averaged 1.7 goals per home game this season and their defence has been good. The Rams have conceded at under a goal per home game and only 48% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. The Rams have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their home games in the Championship this season. Seven of their eleven home victories have been by a two-goal margin or more. Derby have fired off a total of ten goals in their last two home games so they have been a bit more ruthless. They have scored at least two goals in four of their last five, home and away.
