Derby and Sheffield Wednesday are set to produce an open contest in their midweek EFL Championship fixture at Pride Park. Both teams have quality in attack and are set to serve up goals on Tuesday.

Derby Form


Derby suffered a 1-0 defeat at Blackburn in their last Championship fixture. They had chances to score with Krystian Bielik curling an effort just wide while Jack Marriott drew a late save from the Derby goalkeeper.

The result means the Rams have claimed just one win in their last five Championship matches. Phillip Cocu's men will be happy to return to Pride Park where they are unbeaten in their last eight matches, including a 1-1 draw against QPR in their previous fixture.

Derby have quality in attack with Martyn Waghorn who is the team’s top scorer this season with six goals. They are often let down by poor defending and have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last five matches.
