Our Derby County v Huddersfield predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest match odds.
Derby County will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 2-1 Championship loss in their previous game against Watford.
In that game, Derby County managed 49% possession and 4 shots at goal with 0 of them on target. Watford had 7 shots on goal with 4 on target. João Pedro (19'), Will Hughes (21') and William Ekong (77' Own goal) scored for Watford.
In their prior 6 fixtures, Wayne Rooney's Derby County have netted a combined total of 7 times - an average number of goals scored per match of 1.17.
Their prior results show that Derby County:
- haven't beaten Huddersfield Town in their previous 2 league matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
Huddersfield head into the clash following a 4-1 Championship win with the defeat of Swansea City in their most recent match.
In that match, Huddersfield Town managed 59% possession and 11 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. For Huddersfield Town, goals were scored by Fraizer Campbell (22'), Lewis O'Brien (48') and Duane Holmes (52', 55'). Swansea City got 9 shots on goal with 3 on target. Conor Hourihane (45') was the scorer for Swansea City.
Huddersfield Town have been effective going forward leading up to this encounter, scoring 10 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Carlos Corberán will no doubt take that as a positive sign, The Terriers can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same clashes. In any event, we must now wait to see if that trend will be maintained here in this match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Huddersfield Town:
- are undefeated by Derby County when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 10 league games. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.

Team News: Derby County
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Derby County gaffer Wayne Rooney to be concerned with from an otherwise complete squad. Krystian Bielik (Torn knee ligament) misses out.
Team News: Huddersfield
H'field manager Carlos Corberán has to choose a team with limited availability. Christopher Schindler (Knee Injury) and Carel Eiting (Knee Injury) are not ready for selection.
We think that Huddersfield may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Derby County team who will likely emerge victorious.
We therefore fancy a 1-0 winning score for Derby County when the referee blows for full-time.
Hoping for a good game.
