      Derby vs Bristol City Predictions


      There was a thrilling game at the iPro Stadium on Saturday when league leaders Brighton visited. The Rams had high hopes of ending Chris Hughton’s side’s unbeaten record but ultimately were delighted to get a point after Chris Martin’s 88th minute penalty levelled the game at 2-2.

      They will face a different test here against a Bristol City side that is in the wrong half of the division but picked up an important 3 points at the weekend when they won at Huddersfield. The result has moved them 3 points clear of the drop-zone but it’s a really big ask for them to come to Derby and get another positive result.

      The Rams have lost just 1 of their last 15 league matches but have dropped points in their last two games. They’ll be desperate for 3 points here and it is on paper at least an easier game than their last two.

      Derby had won 5 home matches in a row prior to their draw with the league leaders and 4 of those wins were by 2 or more goals. 7 of Bristol City’s 9 defeats this season have been by 2 or more goals so the hosts look good value here at 2.025 when starting with a -1.0 Asian Handicap.

      Of the two sides it is certainly Derby who have the bigger squad and they could bring some real quality into the side here with the likes of Darren Bent, Jeff Hendrick and Johnny Russell all contenders to come into the starting eleven. Having fresh legs is important in this league on a night like this when both sides are playing their 2nd match in 4 days and it could be decisive.

      Therefore consider backing a solid 2-0 home win at odds of 13/2.
