Derby News and Form

Derby collected a solid 1-0 away win at Wigan last weekend in the Championship, which was a great three points for them. It moved them onto back to back wins. The Rams are W5 D1 L2 in their last eight games home and away in the second tier. They have been a strong side at Pride Park with a record of W6 D2 L2 on the board so far. They have won three of their last four there as well (L1). They have come up with an average of over 1.5 goals per home game this season and 60% of their games at Pride Park have gone above the 2.5 goal line.

Each of their last four home games have gone above the mark so there is a trend ticking along there. The Rams have earned a clean sheet in 30% of their home fixtures this season. Four of their six home wins have been by a two-goal margin in this season’s Championship. In five of their ten home fixtures, Derby have been sitting level at the half time break. Derby are on a four-match scoring streak in the second tier but the one concern over them will be their defence. They are without a clean sheet in their last six at Pride Park. They jump up to third place with three points from this.

Derby v Nottingham Forest Head to Head

Derby have won their last three home games against Forest to nil
The Rams took four points from last season’s Championship meetings
Derby are unbeaten in five league games against Forest (W3 D2)
Forest have scored in just one of their last five trips to Pride Park

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Preston last weekend which halted some positive momentum they were on. Forest had gone seven matches undefeated in the Championship before that reverse. Out on the road in the second tier this season Nottingham Forest have produced a W3 D6 L1 record. Forest are unbeaten in their last seven games on their travels this season in the Championship so that’s some strong form. In their last away game in the league, they produced a thrilling 5-5 draw at Aston Villa.

Nottingham Forest have averaged just under two goals per game on their travels this season and they have only failed to score in 10% of their road games. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Forest have earned a clean sheet in 40% of their road games so they should be able to turn up and be a threat. A win draws them level on points with fifth-placed Derby if they can come up with three points in the game. Just twice this season have Forest been leading at half time in an away game and Forest have scored 68% of their away goals this season in the second half of games. They have scored each to their last six road games. Only Middlesbrough and Leeds have better defensive records than Forest currently

Sheffield United News and Form

Sheffield United landed a good 3-2 away win out at Brentford in a tricky fixture during midweek. That snapped a three-match winless streak that they were on. Their form at Bramall Lane in the league this season reads W5 D3 L1 for the season and they are currently running on an eight-match unbeaten streak of home form.

The Blades have averaged 1.78 goals per home game this season while they have conceded an average of a goal per home game. There has been a clean sheet from them in 33% of their home fixtures this season in the Championship. A third of their home games have made it over 4.5 goals and over 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 3:54 pm) for this meeting.

Of the nine goals that they have conceded on home soil this season, all but two of them have been after the halftime break. Not once this season at Bramall Lane have the Blades been losing at halftime in a league game. Five of their home games this season have been at 0-0 at halftime. The halftime draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 3:54 pm). Three points moves them up into second place.

Leeds News and Form

Leeds also landed a midweek win as they took a 1-0 win at Elland Road against Reading. That is three wins in their last four games now (L1) so the year carrying decent form. Away from home in the second tier this season they have taken a W4 D3 L2 record in the Championship. The notable thing about that record is that the two away defeats they have suffered have both happened in their last three away games (W1). Leeds have scored sixteen goals in their nine away games and 67% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Leeds have scored in each and every league away game this season so will be a threat. Both teams to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 3:54 pm) and both teams have scored in 78% of Leeds’ away games so there is a strong trend there. Leeds have found the back of the net in each of their last thirteen games home and away in the league. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three away from home. Leeds have been drawing at halftime in six of their nine away games. Only West Brom have scored more goals in this season’s Championship than Leeds have

Who will win – Sheffield United v Leeds Predictions

These are two very good sides and there isn’t going to be a quarter given by either of them. The most appealing option in the match outright is simply the draw. Leeds should be strong enough to stick in there and collect a point. Draw.

Aston Villa News and Form

Aston Villa produced back to back wins in the Championship before heading into the international break. Their last game was a fantastic 3-0 success on the road at Derby. That was the second time this season only that the Villains had managed to win back to back league games. Villa are unbeaten in three on home soil, winning their last two with a clean sheet. Aston Villa to win to nil is at 2/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm). Each of Villa’s last three home wins have been with a clean sheet so there is a trend.

In their eight home games in the Championship, the Villains have come up with the fifteen goals. That has helped them to a W4 D3 L1 record for the season at Villa Park. They have hit the back of the net in all of their home games thus far. 80% of the goals that Villa have conceded at home this season have been in the second half of games. So that should lean towards the half-time draw offering some decent appeal in the game at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm).

Birmingham had a ding-dong battle in a 3-3 draw with Hull in their last Championship fixture. High scoring games has been a feature for them recently.

Birmingham have come up with an average of less than a goal per away games. 71% of their away goals have been scored in the first half of games. 78% of their away goals conceded have been in the second half. They have struck the back of the net in each of their last nine league games. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm)

Who will win – Aston Villa v Birmingham Predictions

Villa have been good enough on home soil and have had a bit of momentum behind them, enough to go and get a win on the board in this one. It will probably only be by the one-goal margin though as they do look evenly matched.
