Derby may be a beast at home, but their performances on the road have been bleak at best.

Fulham vs Derby County Prediction

Fulham were shocked to have conceded right away in their latest fixture, for which they played hosts to QPR. In the third minute, the visitors went ahead 0-1 and threatened to present a tough evening for the assembled fans.

However, the home team equalized the scorecard as the half-hour-mark approached, and later slotted in the second, in the 64th minute, to go ahead 2-1. This goal later proved to be the winner of the game.

Meanwhile, Derby had welcomed Preston the last match-day, and in the low-scoring affair, with aid of their home advantage, the team took the three points on offer, with a 1-0 scoreline.

As mentioned earlier, Derby have been a disaster on the road, in spite of all their heroics in front of the home crowd. The guests are winless in their last eight away matches and are on a streak of three losses in such games. In addition, they have also not been able to score a goal in their recent three fixtures away from home, and could not do so in five of their last seven as well.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a two-match winning run and were unbeaten in ten of their former twelve overall match-ups. Also, they remained so in five of their last six home games too.

Finally, take into account the domination Fulham have had at home in h2h clashes, and the experience factor they possess due to their presence in the Premier League the previous season, and rightfully, Fulham emerges as the favorite to run away with the victory this Tuesday.
