Tip Reasoning

  • The Potters have seen under three goals in nine of their 12 home matches this season.
  • Derby County’s away league matches are witnessing an average of just 1.4 goals per game.
  • The visitors are conceding less than a goal per game on the road this campaign.

Defence something to be relied upon for Stoke

The hosts will take to the field for the first time since December 11th and that one was a goalless draw with Middlesbrough. Prior to their enforced break, The Potters were showing signs of defensive solidity as they kept five clean sheets and conceded just two goals in their games since the beginning of November. They’ll be relying on their backline as they face a Derby side who, despite their off-field problems, have hit some form.

Derby County have been facing an uphill battle ever since their points deduction was received. But their “never say die” attitude has to be admired and Wayne Rooney’s men, despite being 16 days apart, have registered back-to-back 1-0 wins and it’s given them a glimmer of hope in their mission to defy the odds and beat the drop. Their away form needs improvement though as The Rams are winless across nine Championship road matches.

Low-scoring game likely

We have two sides who are rarely involved in games that see a plethora of goals. The hosts are solid defensively and rarely gift chances, meanwhile, Derby have been struggling to create too many goalscoring chances. The momentum appears to be with the visitors and we think they can claim a narrow victory here. However, we don’t see many goals here and are expecting fewer than three in total.
