Derby County will be hoping they can get back to winning ways in the Championship, when they take on relegation-threatened rivals Coventry City on Saturday.
The Rams were thrashed 4-0 in their most recent match against Cardiff City, which means they’re now sat 19th in the Championship table, and just six points clear of the relegation zone.
It means that Derby are now winless in their last two matches, and they’ll be eager to pick up three points from this one, with Coventry sat 20th in the second-tier standings at this moment in time.
The Sky Blues have only won once in their last nine matches in all competitions, which has seen them slide down the Championship table at a quite alarming rate.

Manager knows more than me and it’s always wait and see. But I have to say I’m not too convinced about the look of that line up. Gonna presume Roberts has been flying in practice . But to me we look lightweight .
