Derby County vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By William Hall

This is the live Sky Sports game on Monday afternoon (17:00) and features two teams in the top ten of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Derby have lost just one of the last eight head-to-heads between these two though that came in the reverse fixture back in October. The result that day was a 1-0 Huddersfield victory thanks to a 90th minute Elias Kachunga strike. After three straight victories Derby would have fancied their chances at Brentford but they were swarmed all over by the Bees who won the game 4-0 to hand Gary Rowett his first defeat as Rams boss.

Huddersfield got a much needed victory as they saw off Preston 3-2 last time out. Elias Kachunga, Josh Payne and Collin Quaner got the goals that day for the Terriers as they kept their thin hopes of automatic promotion alive.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I like the look of overs in this game as both teams have a number of attacking options. This would have paid in five of the last six for Derby and three of the last five for Huddersfield. I also like the YES in the both teams as this would have paid in four of their last seven Town away games and three of their last five at all grounds for County.

Over 2.5 goals in this game

YES both teams to score

Derby Preview

The defeat last time out was the first under Gary Rowett and put to an end a run of three straight victories and four unbeaten for Derby. They sit in eighth place though the gap between the top six and them is too big to make up. At home, it is three wins from their last four for Derby and just one defeat from their last 17 in all competitions. The Rams have lost just four league home games in the entire league season. Five of their last six games have gone over 2.5 goals and six of their last nine in front of their own fans. Just one of their last six has been goalless at half-time. Six of their last eight goals in home matches have come in the second-half.

Huddersfield Preview

It is two wins from their last three games for Huddersfield who are eight behind Newcastle in the race for third with a game in hand. With Fulham hot on their heels Town also need two victories to be sure of a place in the play-offs. Away from home it is just one victory from their last five in all competitions for the Terriers. This is one of three remaining road trips they have with the others coming against Wolves and Birmingham. Three of the last five for the Yorkshire side have gone over 2.5 goals this rises six to eight when looking just at away fixtures. Elias Kachunga has grabbed two goals in the last three. The last five Huddersfield games have seen a total of eight goals in the last twenty minutes.

Derby Team News

Nick Blackman (knee) and Kyle McAllister (groin) are still hoping to return before the end of the season. Jason Shackell (back), James Wilson (cruciate), George Thorne (broken leg) and Craig Forsyth (cruciate) are all going to be out for the remainder of the season.

Huddersfield Team News

Phillip Billing (unknown) is a doubt after going off injured in the opening half of the last game. Izzy Brown (knee) and Kasey Palmer (hamstring) are also questionable.
