Derby – Brentford : Preview & Prediction
Derby County, who lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the play-off final for the Premier League, saw their dream of returning to the top flight. Having not tasted the Premier League since a historic 2007/2008 season (in which the club finished 20th with 1 victory in 38 games, an all-time record in England), Derby still has hope this season. With 3 points behind on 6th place, the first roadblocker for the PL accession, nothing is impossible, and the team of Wayne Rooney can obviously still believe it!
Founded in 1889, the Brentford Football Club adopted professional status 10 years later by reaching the third division. The club has always alternated between second, third and even fourth division, and has never known the current Premier League. In the Championship for 6 years now, the club is closer than ever to discover the elite, thanks to a current 3rd place.
Derby County is second (out of 24) at home in the league with 11 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses.
Derby has scored 31 goals and conceded 15 in 21 Championship home games this season.
Since the resumption, Derby County has been undefeated with 3 wins and 1 draw before losing to the leader.
Brentford is 5th in the away league with 9 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses.
Brentford has scored 33 goals and conceded 18 in 21 away league games this season.
Since the resumption, Brentford has won its 5 disputed matches, including 4 clean sheets.
This should be an exciting match between two teams playing the climb, one of which is much better on board than the other. It is the latter that we see coming back with a result.
