Derby County

EFL pundit shares his prediction as Derby County entertain Leeds United in crucial clash

Published

on

Leeds United travel to Derby County tomorrow in what is a huge game for both as they look to secure promotion from the Championship.

The Rams will have an eye on the second automatic position, although recent results haven’t helped their cause. Meanwhile, Leeds are still clinging on to the hope that they could take the final play-off spot, but they know they need wins quickly.

Paul Heckingbottom’s men came from two goals down to earn a point against Bristol City last time out and were the width of the cross bar away from a memorable win.

And, the Whites will be boosted by the return of Samuel Saiz who has completed a six-game ban after he spat at a Newport player in an FA Cup defeat in January.

Writing in his regular Sky Sports column, EFL pundit David Prutton can’t separate the sides and reckons it will be a 2-2 draw at Pride Park tomorrow.

The former Leeds midfielder acknowledged it’s an outcome that would suit neither side and thinks the need for victory will create an open, attacking game.

The Verdict

This really is a tough game to call as the two sides have been unpredictable in recent weeks.

Derby will expect a win as they have home advantage but Leeds will be confident after their spirited comback on Sunday and you can’t underestimate how important Saiz is to this side.

Therefore, Prutton’s prediction seems very fair and it should be a good game for the neutral as both will be doing all they can to try and secure what would be a massive three points.

Thoughts, Derby and Leeds fans? What will the score be? Let us know in the comments below.
