Derby’s resurgence could take a hit against Stoke

Derby County have tightened up under interim boss Wayne Rooney but their good run of results could come to an end when they host an improving Stoke City outfit.

Rooney has helped the Rams go four matches unbeaten against Wycombe, Coventry, Millwall and Brentford, lifting them off the foot of the table, but Stoke have put in some strong performances of late.

The Potters have beaten Reading, Huddersfield, Wycombe and Middlesbrough since the start of November and are well in contention for a top-six berth this season.

Derby may have held another promotion-chasing side in Brentford to a goalless draw in midweek but they allowed their opponents 12 shots and 59 per cent of the ball in that game and if Stoke are a touch more prolific in the final third, they should take the spoils.

That said, Rooney’s men have shipped only twice in their last four contests so Stoke and under 3.5 goals could be the best bet. We predict a 2-0 win to the Potters.
