Reason For Derby vs Fulham Predictions

  • Fulham have conceded just six goals in their last seven games.
  • The visitors have reacted by winning the following game after five of their last seven defeats.
  • Derby have lost three of their five meetings with the teams fifth and above.
  • The Rams have won one of seven home clashes with top-half teams.

Overexcited Cottagers

Just as they worked themselves into a brilliant position, Fulham blew it. While they aren’t the focus amid the surges of other sides and shakes from others, Fulham have consistently thrown in a bad result all season just as they look to be getting it right

Fulham seem to have everything necessary for a strong promotion challenge, but they just aren’t finding a long run of consistency. Their 3-0 collapse at home to bottom-side Barnsley was an incredible turn of fortune for one of the leading sides in the division. Now they’re under pressure to recover at Derby, but that could suit the visitors.

Fulham Recovery

Fulham’s 0-3 defeat against Barnsley last time out ended a six-game unbeaten run in the Championship for the Cottagers (W4 D2), conceding as many goals against the Tykes as they had in those previous six. They had built up one of the league’s best defences while using the division’s top scorer to punish teams at the other end. Things seemed perfect, certainly too good to be ruined by a relegation contender.

This seems to be a mentality issue with Fulham, given it has happened too often. However, on the bright side for the visitors, these runs don’t tend to last that long. Fulham have only once lost back-to-back games in the Championship this term. The Cottagers have bounced back with a win after five of their last seven defeats, with the other two coming in a three-game losing streak which was broken with a victory.

Derby’s Top Troubles

Derby have lost their last two Championship matches against Fulham, losing 2-0 in the play-offs in May 2018 and 3-0 earlier this season. That latest defeat is part of a worrying trend for the hosts, who have won just twice against top-half sides this season. The Rams have lost three of their clashes with the top five to date, while they’ve won one of seven at home to sides above them in the table.

With Fulham coming here with one of the league’s better away records, we can envisage them getting a result here. The Cottagers have lost just four of their 16 away trips, while they are unbeaten in five. Spurred on by their latest defeat, we expect Fulham to get a result here. The Cottagers Draw No Bet is our prediction, while we’re backing a 2-1 victory for a Fulham side who have won by a single goal in 83% of their away trips.
