Derby County vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is on SKY SPORTS (on the red button) and features two sides in the bottom-half. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Derby suffered a second successive league defeat at the weekend as they lost 2-1 away to Millwall. A David Nugent goal in the 73rd minute proved to be too little too late as their opponents were already 2-0 ahead. Ipswich are still without a win but picked up a useful home point against Aston Villa in a game that ended 1-1. Trevor Chalobah got their goal in a match that saw them play fifty minutes with ten-men following the sending-off of Adetayo Edun. The two meetings between these sides last season were won by the away side with the Rams winning 2-1 in Suffolk and the Tractor Boys 1-0 in the East Midlands. It continues a remarkable trend that has seen the road team win each of their last seven battles.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are strong favourites to win the game but given the start they have had I could not bring myself to back them. Ipswich have been poor travellers of late so I cannot make a case for them either. A better bet is the both teams to score as it has paid in all three for the Rams this season and three of four for the Tractor Boys. If the Suffolk outfit do net it is most likely to come through Gwion Edwards and at the prices on offer the midfielder looks a good value each-way first goalscorer bet.

YES in the both teams to score market

Gwion Edwards first goalscorer, each-way

Derby County Preview

The Rams have picked up just one victory from their opening three fixtures which came on the opening day against Reading. They sit in 14th place while the expected goals data has them as low as 19th. At Pride Park, they lost to Leeds in their only Championship outing but before that had won three straight. Eight of the last ten the East Midlands outfit have played at their own ground have seen both teams score. Each of the three league fixtures Derby have played this season have seen both teams score and gone over 2.5 goals. Tom Lawrence has two in three in the league while Mason Mount has two from four in all competitions.

Derby County Team News

Ikechi Anya, Tom Huddlestone (both groin), Harry Wilson (muscle) and Curtis Davies (hamstring) are all doubts while Marcus Olsson (cruciate) is out until 2019.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys are winless in three league matches now with two draws and one defeat giving them two points. They sit in 16th place which is a fair reflection as the expected goals table has them 17th. Away from Portman Road, they lost 1-0 to Rotherham and drew 1-1 with Exeter and they have just one of their last seven on the road. Just three of the last 12 the Suffolk side have played on the road have gone over 2.5 goals. Six of the nine goals that Ipswich have been involved in this season (in all competitions) have come in the first-half. None of their players have scored more than once this season though Gwion Edwards is leading the attack with an average of 2.3 shots per fixture.

Adetayo Edun will miss the game through suspension.
