📏 Form Guide

Derby County LLLLWD

Derby County go into this game after a 0-0 EFL Cup drawn game versus Barrow.

In that match, Derby County had 68% possession and 17 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. Barrow got 4 shots on goal with 1 on target.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Derby County have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that The Rams have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals along the way. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will continue on here in this game.

Reading DWLLLW

Reading go into this meeting following a 3-1 EFL Cup win with the downing of Colchester United in their last match.

In that game, Reading had 60% possession and 12 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Reading was Lucas João (45', 56', 75'). On the other side, Colchester United got 11 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Jevani Brown (37') scored for Colchester United.

Proving their bias toward fruitful encounters, we’ve seen goals 20 times in the last 6 games in which Reading have taken to the pitch, giving an average of 3.33 goals for each fixture. Their opponents have got 11 of these goals.

👥 Head to head

An examination of their prior head-to-head meetings stretching back to 04/11/2017 tells us that Derby County have won 3 of these games & Reading 2, with the tally of drawn matches standing at 1.

There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 24 in total at an average of 4 goals per match.

The previous league game featuring these sides was Championship match day 39 on 27/06/2020 and the score finished Derby County 2-1 Reading.

That day, Derby County managed 50% possession and 13 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. The scorers were Tom Lawrence (44') and Wayne Rooney (45').

For their opponents, Reading had 13 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Andy Rinomhota (62') was the scorer.

The match was refereed by Scott Duncan.

ℹ️ Team News: Derby County

Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Derby County boss Phillip Cocu to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Krystian Bielik (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.

It looks as if The Rams look set to employ a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game featuring David Marshall, Craig Forsyth, Mike Te Wierik, Matt Clarke, Andre Wisdom, Max Bird, Wayne Rooney, Jason Knight, Louie Sibley, Duane Holmes and Martyn Waghorn.

📋 Team News: Reading

Due to a fully injury-free group available for selection, Reading boss Veljko Paunović has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game. Yakou Méïté cannot play in this game through suspension.

We believe The Royals appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system by sending out Rafael, Andy Yiadom, Michael Morrison, Tom McIntyre, Omar Richards, Josh Laurent, Andy Rinomhota, Yakou Méïté, John Swift, Michael Olise and Lucas Joao.

🧠 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Reading might have a difficult job to find the net against this Derby County outfit who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.

We therefore see a good tussle with a 1-0 victory for Derby County at the end of the match.

Let’s see.
