Following their shattered promotion dreams from last season Derby made an interesting decision to bring Frank Lampard into the managerial business. He may not have experience but the players look motivated under his guidance. The Rams will be challenging this year again for top 6 and such games are of huge importance.

Derby lost their tough games against Millwall and Leeds but managed to get back into the frame with 2 victories over lower table sides. Midweek a 2-0 victory over Ipswich game the team its 6th point.

Preston are looking disappointing this season compared to the standard from last year. The team looks inconsistent and somewhat leaky at the back. The side is physically strong but currently looks to lack some cooperation between the lines. The team needs to step up their performances if they want to come closer to top 6 this year.

Preston took a heavy blow midweek losing to Norwich at Carrow Road. The game looked evenly matched and things were looking like it’s going to be a bore draw. Still Norwich struck 2 heavy blows in the last 10 minutes of the game as Pukki and Tettey managed to put 2 goals behind Declan Rudd.

Derby vs Preston: Predictions

Both side didn’t get the start they wanted. Still With the home advantage and the decent amount of class in Derby they can be considered as favourites. Preston have failed to create enough opportunities up front and may have another tough game against Derby.
