Derby v Huddersfield betting preview
Derby County's season has again been a frustrating one. The Rams have shown in bursts that they clearly have the quality to compete towards the top end of the table but a lack of consistency, both from the playing squad and in the dugout where there have been plenty of changes this term, have held them back in a fight for a top six finish.
After picking up three consecutive victories over the end of March and beginning of April in matches against Queens Park Rangers, Fulham and Birmingham City, Gary Rowett's men were looking like potential last minute challengers although their hopes were all but ended by a 4-0 mauling at Brentford on Friday. Their strong home form makes them 8/5 favourites here with William Hill
Huddersfield Town have performed above all expectations this season to find themselves in the hunt for a first ever promotion to the Premier League. The West Yorkshire side are still in with a chance of a top two finish as they do have a game in hand on Newcastle who were held to a draw by Leeds United on Friday thanks to a last-gasp Chris Wood equaliser.
Nobody expected the Terriers to be fighting for automatic promotion this year but German boss David Wagner has built a very capable young side in very little time at the John Smith's Stadium and although their away form has been a little shaky of late, we're backing them to buck the trend of Derby's recent solid home form and win here at 39/20 with Sportingbet
Derby have shown, on home soil at least, their ability in front of goal recently. They racked up four in their last match at the iPro Stadium and in players like David Nugent and Darren Bent they possess plenty of experience in attack. We fancy the hosts to get a goal but with so much riding on this game, a win for the Terriers is pivotal and in our opinion, likely. Huddersfield to win and both teams to score is 9/2 with Betfred
Elias Kachunga has enjoyed a fine first season in English football. The German born forward has been a constant thread at the spearhead of the Terriers attack this season, racking up 12 goals in the league including two in his last three matches. The former Ingolstadt man is priced at 2/1 with bet365
to score at any time in this one.
