Derby vs Middlesbrough Prediction

The hosts have been alternating between wins and defeats in their previous four games, the last of which saw them admit defeat against Hull by a 2-0 scorecard. Despite the inconsistent run, it is certainly worth noting that Derby were deprived of a win only in those clashes which took place on the road.

At home, Derby have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their past three matchups, and are also unbeaten in their previous five here.

On the other hand, Middlesbrough are yet to turn things around in their respective campaign. The away side have been recording back to back stalemates in their previous two fixtures and have not had a taste of success in their last seven either.

Furthermore, the visitors have been at their worst away from home this season, and have no wins to boast of so far. With Derby sporting an indomitable streak at the moment, it goes without saying that Middlesbrough will be biting off more than what they can chew when they square up against the hosts this week.

Additionally, the guests have hardly been a threat in the final third and have not found the back of the net in any of their previous three games on the trot. The home side have not been keen on racking up the goals tally here either, and have been winning with a clean sheet intact in their past two fixtures.

As such, count on Derby to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
