Derby County vs Preston Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
Derby are desperate for a win to get their automatic promotion bid back on track as they host Preston in the Championship this Tuesday. Our betting tips suggest that the visitors are capable of getting a result here.
Reason For Derby County vs Preston Betting Tips
The Rams had a poor January failing to win a league game and were pretty disappointing in the FA Cup on Friday night when they were beaten at home by Manchester United. That was their 3rd consecutive defeat in all competitions and they’ve conceded 10 goals during that period so there is genuine concern for Paul Clement and Derby fans are already fearing a repeat of last season when they suffered a dramatic late collapse to fall out of the top six on the final day.
Given their opponents are leaking goals currently, Preston will come here with a degree of confidence. They find themselves in 16th place but with a very solid 10 point lead on the bottom 3.
Preston were beaten 3-1 at home by Brentford last time out in the league but did take 10 points from their 4 previous matches so are in decent form overall and are exceeding expectations. They were struggling badly for goals in the early weeks of the season but have addressed that issue over the past few months although they haven’t been quite as solid at the back as a result.
Both teams have scored in all of their last 4 league matches and Preston have only failed to score in 1 of their last 12 games in the Championship. Both teams have also netted in 4 of Derby’s last 5 matches so consider backing both teams to score in this game at 11/10.
Trying to find a winner is not easy here though given Preston are tough to beat and Derby are out of form so consider going for a 1-1 draw in the correct score market at 6/1.
