Derby County v Wolves Preview, Championship, Sunday 18th October 2015

Some great results so far this season for Derby County, who have now gone five Championship games without defeat. The game against Reading has been the only major scalp won in the five games with the others all currently being below them in the table. Their last win was against Brentford, who last year were a side fighting in the play-offs for promotion, yet this year could be facing a relegation fight if things do not improve. This Sundays game against Wolves will be one of the toughest they would of played recently and luckily for Derby County they are at home.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently a side who have regained some form as of late, having won their most recent two Championship games as well as holding current league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion to a goalless draw. Wolves do have a few tough games fast approaching with Middlesbrough coming up in a couple of weeks. The club have already lost once against them this season, when the two met in the Capital One Cup in which Wolves lost the game 3 – 0. Birmingham City will also be a tough game, and with it being away this derby match wont be met with much happiness if Wolves lose.

Derby County Team News:

Derby County will be without Will Hughes, Craig Bryson and Jake Buxton due to injuries, but they do have some good news in knowing George Thorne should be able to cover and maintain his starting position. Jeff Hendrick and Craig Forsyth should keep a starting position and Ryan Shotton could also potentially start once again in defense.

Wolves Team News:

Wolverhampton Wanderers recently had news of an injury blow, with Ethan Ebanks-Landell being sidelined for a month. After the recent win over Huddersfield, I personally cannot see the team changing too much with the manager more likely to keep the starting eleven. Ojo did start up front instead of Ebanks-Landell so the strikers injury should be too much of an impact.

Derby County v Wolves Head to Head Statistics:

In the last five head to head encounters we so see that it is Wolverhampton Wanderers who come out just on top with two wins, two draws and a single loss. In total we have seen 78 games played against each other with Wolves just coming out on top with 31 wins. Derby County are not too far behind with 28 victories, leaving the remaining 19 games all ending in draws.

Derby County v Wolves Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Championship action this Sunday can be viewed live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition and features home side Derby County welcoming Wolverhampton Wanderers to their ground. Derby County have been in some great form recently and are the bookmakers favourites to continue their winning form on Sunday. That said we could easily see any result, be it a draw of some kind or even an away win if recent Wolves results are anything to go by.

Both clubs are sitting comfortably in the Championships table right now although Derby County are slightly higher with a couple of extra points. A win on Sunday for them would be massive, and they could climb as high as third depending on other league results. A massive win could see them hit second position, although that is very unlikely with the odds on a 5 – 0 win being extremely far fetched. Wolves however could also see them climb the table, obviously taking over Derby County and could find themselves in the play-off positions, although that doesn’t exactly matter too much right now with so long to go.

My predictions for Sundays Championship game will back both clubs to earn something out of this game, and I feel going for a correct score draw of some kind could be quite exciting. We do know the goals per game average is reasonably high, but could we see a little more with a 2 – 2 draw? I’m going to go for that result anyway, and if it comes in will be giving a nice little pay out no doubt. The other I am going for is both teams to score in the game, and also seeing home side Derby County winning the match come the end of the game.
