Derby County vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in good form in the English Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Derby continued their good run with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brentford in their last league game. Tom Huddlestone, Cameron Jerome and Matej Vydra (penalty) got the goals in a match saw the Bees have Sergi Canos sent-off after just 21 minutes. Norwich are in good form themselves and continued this run with a 1-0 home victory over Middlesbrough. The Canaries had Tom Trybull to thank who netted just before half-time while Rudy Gestede was dismissed after 28 minutes for Boro. The reverse fixture at the end of October at Carrow Road saw County come out on top 2-1. The visitors took the lead through David Nugent only for Timm Klose to level 19 minutes from time but up stepped Sam Winnall with seven minutes to go to claim all three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This is the kind of game where you could make a case for both sides being a touch of value. If you look at the home record of Derby with nine victories in their last 14 then they could appeal as could Norwich at bigger prices who have won three of their last four on the road including at Brentford and Bristol City. One thing that is likely though is that this game will be low on goals the Rams have conceded just two times in their last eight at home, the Canaries just three times in their last seven at all grounds. The way to play this then is to take NO in the both teams to score market and under 1.5 goals in what should be a tight battle between two sides who do not give much away.

Derby County Preview

The Rams are now unbeaten in their last 11 Championship fixtures a run that has seen them rise into second and an automatic promotion spot. This marks a decent run of games with just one of their next seven against teams in the top eight. At the iPro Stadium, it is four victories and two draws with Ipswich the last side to win here in the league. No side has a better home defence than County who have shipped just nine in front of their own fans. None of the last four and just two of the last 14 Derby have played have seen both teams find the back of the net. 25 of the 47 league goals they have netted this season have come in the first-half.

Derby County Team News

Andreas Weimann (personal), Bradley Johnson (back), Kyle McAllister (groin) and Jonathan Mitchell (finger) are doubts.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries are in good form with five victories and just one defeat from their last seven league matches. They sit in 13th place but with 16 games to go and just eight points off the top six hopes of the play-offs have not been completely dismissed. Away from Carrow Road, they are unbeaten in their last four keeping a clean sheet in each of these. Each of their last five on the road have been low scoring with a 2-0, three 1-0s and a goalless draw. Just three of their last Norwich have played in the league have gone over 2.5 goals and none of these have gone over 3.5. Around 33% (a third) of their goals this campaign have been netted in the first-half.

Norwich City Team News

James Madison (muscle), Ivo Pinto (bruised knee) and Wes Hoolahan (back) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (ankle) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are long-term absentees
