Wolves v Derby County Preview, Championship, Friday 20th March 2015.

Wolverhampton Wanderers should fancy this game with Derby County in such terrible form right now. Granted they maybe five points above them in the table but this Friday will be a great opportunity for Wolves to make up some ground in a push for the play-off positions. With eight Championship games left to play and some tough opponents yet to play we will need to see Wolves dig deep if they wish to fight for a place in next years Premiership ranks. In the last five games we have seen Wolves earn some solid points with a draw against top side Watford to take into consideration, they have also won two games against Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Derby County have taken a serious tumble for the worse recently having lost three and drawn two in their last five Championship games. An away loss against Wolves on Friday could continue to spell disaster for the club who were top at one point during the season and could eventually see them drop out of the play-off positions. However if they did manage to start turning things around they could still see themselves as serious contenders for automatic promotion, yet they do face Watford next week and then Brentford soon after which could potentially continue a drop in form for Derby County.

Wolves Team News:

Wolves will be without Bakary Sako for Fridays game as he is still serving a suspension after being sent off in the 2 – 2 draw at home to Watford. Which will be a tough blow for Wolves seeing as though he is their top goal scorer so far this season with twelve efforts. They will need to rely on strikers Dicko and Afobe who have so far scored seventeen between them.

Derby County Team News:

Derby County and Scotland international striker Chris Martin is in great form this season having scored sixteen Championship goals as well as three others in the FA and Capital One Cup. We have also seen Hendrick, Tom Ince, Ward and Russell each score six goals each.

Wolves v Derby County Head to Head Statistics:

We have 77 meetings recorded between these two clubs where Wolves have won 30 to Derby County’s 28. We have also has 28 draws over time.

We would expect Derby County to be the top team in form right now, but if anything they look like a club fighting the relegation battle when looking at their last five fixtures. Wolverhampton Wanderers are however doing much better with two wins, two draws and a single loss.

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

Championship action this Friday can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition and features home side Wolverhampton Wanderers verses Derby County. The two right now are fighting for a Championship play-off position in which Derby County are currently occupying. Yet that could all change soon considering the form they are in and if Wolves do manage a win then they could close the gap and make a serious push for promotion with eight games left remaining.

Derby County right now are in poor form with them having lost three and drawing two of their last five games, and if they continue on that path then we will no doubt see them drop out of the play-offs and potentially see themselves fighting for another season in the Championship. Wolverhampton Wanderers have started to improve a lot and started to make a push for a play-off claim and a win on Friday will no doubt help their case.

My predictions for this Championship fixture does fancy that of the home side and I for one would love to see an old side such as Wolves once again make the Premiership their home. So for the first prediction I feel I am going to go for a correct score of Wolves to win 2 – 1 which I feel is more than realistic. The next will be for Benik Afobe to score and for Wolverhampton Wanderers to win.
