Fulham vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday evening (17:30) live TV game features two sides who will be hoping to be involved in the Championship promotion battle. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Fulham continued their recent woes with a 2-0 loss to Wolves last time out going behind after nine minutes and conceding another in the 26th minute. They did see more of the ball but this came after they found themselves two down and could not create enough goal scoring chances to get back in the game. Derby saw their four-game winning run come to an end last time out with a surprise 4-2 home loss to Reading. The Royals were two up in 13 minutes and second-half goals from Johnny Russell and Chris Martin proved to be little more than consolation efforts. The two meetings between the pair last season saw Derby take four points with a 4-2 victory at the iPro Stadium for the Rams and the game at Craven Cottage ended 2-2. David Nugent and Floyd Ayite both got among the goals netting three each.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that Fulham have just won one game at home this season I could not be backing them at these prices. The visitors are in good form but the price on them just looks a little too short and the draw looks the most likely result of the three. Six of the last eight for the visitors have seen two or three goals scored while this is nine of 11 for the hosts and backing a total goal score of exactly two or three goals looks a way to get involved here. Around 39% of the London sides goals have come in the last 15 minutes and around 22% of the visitors so it might be worth a little interest on this game having a late goal which is timed at 74:59.

Fulham Preview

It is now five without a victory for the Cottagers who have taken just two points from these matches. They sat 17th going into the international break which is hugely disappointing start for one of the top three in the betting for the title at the start of the season. At Craven Cottage, they have struggled winning just one game though they have lost twice with five finishing all-square. Five of their last six in front of their own fans has seen both teams find the back of the net. A lack of goals has been an issue as they find themselves in the bottom third for goals scored with Stefan Johansen on four goals their top scorer. Their defence has been strong conceding just 19 times though none of their two clean sheets this season has come at their own ground.

Fulham Team News

Lucas Piazon (broken leg) and Sheyi Ojo (dislocated shoulder) are close to returns while Kevin McDonald is suspended.

Derby County Preview

Despite defeat last time out the Rams can be happy with a run of form that has seen them win four and lose just one of their last eight. They have climbed the Championship table and going into the international break they sat in 7th place with 25 points. Away from the iPro Stadium, they have been quite strong with three victories, two draws and just three defeats from eight with victories at Norwich and Leeds in their last two. A feature of their travels is both teams finding the back of the net which has happened in six of their last seven in all competitions. The 23 goals they have netted this season is the ninth best attack in the league though ten in their last five suggests they have found their scoring boots. Their defence has conceded 19 goals which puts them in the middle tier though they have kept clean sheets in three of their last six.

Derby County Team News

Darren Bent (hamstring) is closing in a return while Mason Bennett (knee), Matej Vydra (calf) and Richard Keogh (thigh) are doubts. Kyle McAllister (groin) is ruled out until the new-year.
