📰 Team News: Derby County

Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Derby County gaffer Phillip Cocu to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Krystian Bielik (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.

🗞️ Team News: Preston North End

Owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from, Preston North End manager Alex Neil has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this match.

💡 Prediction

Our thinking is that Preston North End and Derby County may both struggle to make a breakthrough here.

We’ll have to see, but a draw might be on the cards. We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought 0-0 draw at the end of the 90.
