Bristol City vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides who have made decent starts to the Championship season.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Bristol City picked up a useful point at Wolves last time out though having been 3-2 up with eight minutes to go they may be a little disappointed they did not take all three. Aden Flint netted one as did Bobby Reid and a Famara Diedhiou who converted a penalty but the game ended 3-3. Derby lost 3-2 in midweek to Barnsley but this was a League Cup tie with Jonny Russell and Mason Bennett getting their goals. In the league, they won their previous game 5-0 at home to Burton thanks to a brace from Bradley Johnson and Matej Vydra while Curtis Davies also netted once. These two drew both meetings last season with the game at the iPro Stadium ending 3-3 and the one at Ashton Gate finishing 1-1.  Jonny Russell has netted twice in the last four meetings between the duo as has Darren Bent but the latter will not be available through injury.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair and I would tend to agree and given that the Robins have drawn four of their last five and the Rams are tough to beat then the draw looks worth a little interest. Both teams know where the back of the net is with Bristol City grabbing 11 for the season and Derby 10 which puts them in the top ten of attacking talents so I think a play on this game to be a scoring draw also makes sense.

Bristol City Preview

After being tipped for relegation by some the Robins can be content with their start to the season taking ten points from their opening seven games. They are now five unbeaten in the league though four of these have been draws. At home, it is one victory and two games ending all-square from the three in the league so far. This good run at Ashton Gate in the Championship extends from last season and it is just one defeat in ten. Bobby Reid has been in excellent scoring form this season with five league goals though three of those have come on the road.  27% of the goals they have netted this season have come in the final 15 minutes.

Bristol City Team News

Milan Djuric (groin strain) is unlikely to play any part in this fixture.

Derby County Preview

With a midweek game in the League Cup the Rams have played just six rather than seven fixtures but still sit in 11th place with ten points. They are in good form with three victories and one defeat from their last four in the league with that defeat coming at Sheff U. On the road, it has been a mixed bag with one victory, one draw and one defeat and looking at last season also it is just two victories in 12. A feature of these games is both teams scoring in each of their three away ties this season and last five in the league. Bradley Johnson and Matej Vydra are their top scorers with three league goals each and both netted a brace in the last match. 60% of their goals in the league have come in the first-half and 90% have come in the opening 60 minutes.

Derby County Team News

Max Lowe (abdominal injury), Kyle McAllister (groin) and Jamie Hanson (calf) are doubts while Darren Bent is out until November with a hamstring injury.
