Gary Rowett and his men will get the chance to break back into it right away in the following round when they take on direct rivals Middlesbrough in a six-pointer at iPro Stadium. Boro have been somewhat more consistent throughout the season, but their form did hit the stumbling block in the last couple of weeks. They managed to break Bristol City down with goals from George Friend and Daniel Ayala last weekend, but Tony Pulis’ side still has plenty to do in order to book the playoffs come May.

Boro’s forwards will fancy the fact Derby County shipped five goals in last two league games. Additionally, the Rams were winless in four consecutive fixtures at iPro before beating Bolton Wanderers 3-0 in the previous game in front of the home crowd.

Derby County vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head

Only one of last six head to head games saw both teams on the scoreline.

Middlesbrough were on a streak of four wins and a draw before losing this term’s clash 0-3 at Riverside.

Derby lead the H2H tie in matches on the home patch by eight wins ahead of the landmark 50th meeting with Boro at home.

Derby County vs Middlesbrough: Prediction

Before the mentioned victory over the Trotters, Derby shipped eight goals in last three home ties in the league. On the other side, Middlesbrough won just one of last seven games away from Riverside. Taking the match importance into consideration, we truly believe it will be very hard to make the difference when these two outfits take on each other on Saturday, The draw is the best betting option and you can back it at the odds of 3.25.

Since four of last five games Middlesbrough played on the road saw goals at both ends, we will back this option as an alternative bet at the 1.90 odds.
