Derby County

EFL pundit delivers his score prediction for Fulham vs Derby County

Published

on

Fulham have been in absolutely devastating form in recent weeks, winning seven successive games coming into tomorrow’s clash. 

During this run, The Cottagers have scored 25 times and have conceded just two goals, with their latest victory over Barnsley taking them to the Championship summit. 

Fulham have now scored 48 goals already this season, which is 15 more than any other team in the division. 

Trying to stop their winning run tomorrow night is Wayne Rooney’s Derby County.

The Rams slashed Bournemouth’s unbeaten run on the road this season during their 3-2 victory at Pride Park on Sunday, and whilst the odds are against them, they will travel to West London with confidence. 

Derby are back to 0 points after being docked 21 this season, but they do remain 15 points adrift of safety. 

David Prutton has predicted that this game will finish 3-1 to the home side in his Sky Sports Predictions column.

The verdict 

Fulham have been wonderful in recent weeks, and whilst they are gaining all the plaudits for their attacking play, their mean defence has been equally as impressive. 

The Cottagers have blown the majority of teams they have played this season, but it will be no surprise to see their dominance lessened against Derby. 

The Rams have proven to be difficult to break down and tend to dominate the midfield battle. 

They also possess exciting and intelligent attacking players, in the likes of Jason Knight and Tom Lawrence, who are always at hand to unlock defences. 

A 3-1 home win is certainly on the cards, but it will be no surprise to see a much tighter game than most would expect to be played out at Craven Cottage.
