↔️ Head to head

An examination of past results between these clubs going back to 07/03/2017 shows that these fixtures have not been happy ones for Preston North End. They’ve not been able to get any wins whatsoever whereas Derby County have been dominant against them, winning in 67% of those match-ups.

📋 Team News: Preston North End

Preston North End manager Alex Neil will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely injury-free group to choose from.

It seems likely that The Lilywhites look set to employ a 4-3-3 system for this one, utilising Declan Rudd, Andrew Hughes, Ben Davies, Patrick Bauer, Darnell Fisher, Paul Gallagher, Ben Pearson, Daniel Johnson, Scott Sinclair, Sean Maguire and Tom Barkhuizen.

🗞️ Team News: Derby County

Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Derby County gaffer Phillip Cocu to be concerned with. Krystian Bielik (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.

We reckon that The Rams will likely play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Ben Hamer, Jayden Bogle, Matt Clarke, Andre Wisdom, Craig Forsyth, Wayne Rooney, Max Bird, Martyn Waghorn, Louie Sibley, Duane Holmes and Chris Martin.

💡 Prediction

We feel that over the course of the game, Derby County might have a difficult job to see themselves scoring against this Preston North End lineup who we think will likely be able to grind out a win. We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 victory for Preston North End at the end of the 90. We’ll see what happens.
