Derby County vs Preston North End Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game comes from the IPRO Stadium and features Derby as they play host to Preston. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. The Rams suffered a loss last time out as they went down 2-0 nil at home to Wolves. Gary Rowett said after the game that he was disappointed in the way his side are struggling to create meaningful chances. Preston got a useful point at Elland Road against a Leeds side who were strong at home last season. The result was even more impressive because they played thirty minutes of the game with ten-men after Ben Pearson was dismissed. It is now eight without defeat for the Midlands outfit in their head-to-head meetings including four points from their two meetings last season. Their last three clashes have produced a total of just three goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Neither of these sides are blessed with goalscorers and neither are creating much so this might be a low scoring affair. Under 2.5 goals is probably no value but why stop there try a play on under 1.5 goals and under 0.5 goals.

Derby County Preview

It has not been a great start to the season for Derby who gained a point at Sunderland on opening day but have since lost at home to Wolves. A lack of goals and creating of chances seems to be an issue since selling Tom Ince and losing Darren Bent to Injury. Two of the three goals that they have conceded in the league so far have come in the first-half. The loss to Wolves last time out was their first home loss in eight games. Bradley Johnson has their only league goal of the season so far and has a registered a high 4.5 shots per game. Johnny Russell is another player who has seen a lot of the ball and registered 2.5 shots per game.

Derby County Team News

George Thorne (broken leg), Jason Shackell (back) and max Lowe (abdominal) are all back in training while Kyle McAllister (groin) and Matej Vydra (hamstring) are also close to a return. Two players certain to miss out are Darren Bent (hamstring) and Jamie Hanson (calf).

Preston North End Preview

It has been a decent start to the season for Preston who have taken four points from their first two games under Alex Neil with a victory over Sheffield Wednesday and a draw at Derby. These games have been low scoring encounters with the win being a 1-0 scoreline and the draw being goalless. The only league goal North End have scored all season has come from the penalty spot. They are a competitive team with five bookings from their two games so far. Callum Robinson has yet to find the back of the net for North End this season but he does average 3.5 shots per game. Midfielder Alan Browne and forward Sean Maguire meanwhile both average two shots per fixture.

Preston North End Team News

Ben Pearson will miss the game through suspension.
