Derby looking to bounce back from midweek defeat as West Brom visit Pride Park




Two preseason promotion hopefuls go head to head at Pride Park on Saturday as Derby County host West Brom.

Derby will be looking to bounce back following their first defeat of the season in midweek. The Rams, yet to win at home this campaign, were made to rue a number of missed chances against a clinical Bristol City side who were two goals to the good at half time.

And by the time Derby did find the back of the net in the 85th minute it was too little too late.

West Brom remain unbeaten in the league under Slaven Bilic.

Eight points from a possible 12 sees them occupy the final playoff spot, but let’s be honest nobody cares about league positions so early on in the season.

On the road West Brom have looked solid. Winning both away games 2-1 they’re 19/2 to win by the same scoreline on Saturday.

Defensively the Baggies must improve. They’ve yet to keep a clean sheet and it’s 4/6 for both teams to score at Pride Park.

Martyn Waghorn has bagged six goals in Derby’s last six home victories and he’s 11/2 to open the scoring.

Derby did the double over West Brom last season scoring seven goals in two games and they’re 4/1 to score three or more goals.

This is a game that could go either way. Derby are 6/4 slight favourites, the draw is available at 5/2 while West Brom are 15/8 to bag all three points on the road once again.
