Derby vs Huddersfield
England – The Championship
Date: Monday, 17th April 2017
Kick off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: iPro Stadium, Derby.
The late Championship kick off on Monday will see Derby take on Huddersfield. Derby’s loss to Brentford last week pretty much assured that they won’t make the play-offs. Their chances now hang by a thread and it would be a miracle if the Rams did make it.
Form up until that loss was very good where they had won 3 games in a row but ultimately it looks like they have just come short this season. At home the club have been brilliant in 2017 and have been a real force.
Huddersfield are in 3rd place on 77 points and whilst mathematically they could come 2nd and get an automatic qualification to the Premier League they are still 8 points behind Newcastle and 12 points behind Brighton. At least for them a play-off position is more realistic but they would really welcome the 3 points in this game as Fulham in 7th place on 70 points do remain a small threat.
Away from home Huddersfield have been fairly impressive with 9 wins from 20 games however they have lost their last 2 matches which came against poorer opposition.

Derby vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Huddersfield doesn’t have a good record at this ground and they could lose this game and still be in a strong position for the play-off. For Derby at home this is their very last chance to join the top six group. They should give this game everything and we expect a home win.
