Derby vs Brentford Predictions

Out of form Derby have struggled to win and face a tough test against a Brentford side returning to form. The Rams’ lack of goals could play into Bees hands in this fixture.

  • Derby have failed to score in their last 4 matches (Championship).
  • Brentford have won 3 of their last 4 matches (Championship).
  • Brentford’s Ivan Toney has scored 5 goals in his last 5 away matches (Championship). 


Derby and Brentford have faced each other 37 times. Derby hold a 15-12 advantage over the Bees and 10 games have ended in a draw.

In the reverse fixture at the Brentford Community Stadium, the sides drew 0-0. The Bees dominated the game, had 12 shots and hit the woodwork twice but the Rams held on for a point. 

Derby Form 

Derby are now winless in five straight Championship games after losing 1-0 at home to Millwall at the weekend.

The Rams dominated the game, had 70% possession, attempted 12 shots on goal and hit the post. But Sam Hutchinson’s header seconds before half-time earned Millwall all three points.

Wayne Rooney’s side have lost three of their last five Championship games and have failed to score in their last four matches. 

Derby are winless in their last two at home and they have won once in their last seven matches, returning just five points from their last 21 available.

Derby Injuries and Team News

Derby’s defensive duo Krystian Bielik and Curtis Davies are ruled out. Midfielder Tom Lawrence is also unavailable through injury.

Wayne Rooney made two changes for last weekend’s loss to Millwall and replaced Andre Wisdom with Nathan Byrne, while Martyn Waghorn came in for Lee Gregory in attack.

Byrne could retain his place in midfield this week after a positive performance, while Gregory may be recalled after Waghorn’s poor display against Millwall. 

Brentford Form

Brentford bounced back from a disappointing defeat to Norwich two weekends ago and beat Blackburn 1-0 at Ewood Park on Friday evening.

Ivan Toney scored the winner from the penalty spot on ten minutes and Thomas Frank’s side saw out the match despite having 40% possession.

The result ended Brentford’s run of three straight defeats away from home and secured a third win in four Championship games for the Bees.

Brentford have won seven of their last 11 games in the Championship and Toney has scored ten goals in this period. 

Brentford Injuries and Team News

Brentford will be without Rico Henry, Pontus Jansson and Shandon Baptiste, who are all ruled out through injury.

Thomas Frank recalled Tariqe Fosu-Henry and Christian Noorgard for the 1-0 win over Blackburn. 

After a good performance from his side, Frank is likely to stick with the same starting XI for the trip to Pride Park this week.
