      Derby County vs MK Dons Predictions

       

      The Rams are winless in 6 matches now in all competitions and haven’t won in the league since Boxing Day. That has to change soon if they are to stay in contention for automatic promotion while there are now only 3 points separating them from 7th place Ipswich.

       

      Their problem has been goals and for all their possession they often lack cutting edge, something which Paul Clement tried to address in January but with limited success so far. Derby have scored just 3 goals in their 6 league games in 2016 so if they are to end their winless streak it’s unlikely to be by more than the odd goal.

       

      MK Dons are a little bit unpredictable and have put in some really poor performances since the turn of year including a 5-0 home loss to Burnley and 3-1 defeat at fellow strugglers Bolton. However they come into this match after 2 more impressive performances particularly at the back.

       

      They drew 0-0 at Cardiff last weekend and restricted table-topping Middlesbrough to a 1-1 draw in midweek. They are likely to go with a similar attitude here and will be hopeful of a similar result given Derby’s struggles.


      It’s certainly unlikely to be a high-scoring game. MK Dons have netted just 4 times in their 6 league games so far this year, still 1 more than Derby have mustered and backing there to be under 2.5 goals at 9/10 looks a solid bet here.

       

      The Rams will surely get back to winning ways soon though and this looks as good an opportunity as any to do that. They might not be at their best right now but a scrappy 1-0 win, which can be backed at 11/2, would be a huge boost to Paul Clement’s side.
