Derby vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview

Derby lost 1-0 at Ewood Park last time out in a poor performance which saw them fail to register a shot on target.  It stretches the winless run to three for County and it is all three points in just one of their last five games.

At Pride Park, the Rams last played on November 30th and were a little forunate to get a point in a 1-1 draw with QPR.  It does though stretch their unbeaten home record to eight with the East Midlands outfit winning four of the last five.

Sheffield Wednesday beat Brentford 2-1 last time out with the game turning on a brace from their forward Steven Fletcher.  It means the Yorkshire outfit have won each of their last two, lost just one of their last five and are up into sixth spot.

Away from Hillsborough, the Owls were last in action November 30 and they were victorious that day beating Charlton 2-1.  It put to an end a run of four without success on the road and was their fourth road victory this season.

Bookmakers Sheffield Wednesday favourites to win the game and while they are the better side than Derby home advantage makes a real difference to County and we would not be looking to oppose them.  A better approach is to back the Rams to net first as they have scored before half-time in 70% of their league games this season.

Another angle of attack is to take advantage of the East Midlands outfit weakness at the back especially at set-pieces and take a punt on Dominic Iorfa to score at anytime.  The defender did net against them last season and looks over-priced to do so again here.
