They failed to pick up a home win once again on Saturday when QPR left Bet365 Stadium with a point in their pocket. Stoke thus won just three of nine home matches this term, an underwhelming record for a team chasing the top flight promotion. They were the better side on the pitch at the weekend in spite of getting off to a poor start. Saido Berahino and Joe Allen turned things around after Angel Rangel’s opener for the Hoops. However, it was QPR’s left-back who had the final word netting his second of the game to set the final score 2-2 12 minutes from time. Veteran substitute Peter Crouch saw his header denied at the death of the game.

Stoke City vs Derby County: Head-to-head

This will be the first head to head encounter in six years between these two likes.

Stoke City advanced from the 4th round of the FA Cup back then with a 0-2 victory at iPro Stadium.

Their previous league clash took place back in the 2006/07 season when teams were battling it out together in the Championship as well.

Just one of last six H2H outings saw goals scored at both ends.

Stoke City vs Derby County: Prediction

Frank Lampard’s men bounced back successfully after a tough 0-3 home defeat to Aston Villa before the international break. They turned things around within six minutes to see off struggling Sheffield Wednesday away at Hillsborough at the weekend. Goals came in from Harry Wilson and Jack Marriott. The latter confirmed his excellent spell of form by netting his sixth goal in last eight appearances for the Rams.

Both teams have the right to hope for a result when they come face to face at Bet365 Stadium. We see the draw as the most likable of three outcomes and you can back it at the odds of 3.40. More conservative punters can try with goals at both ends at the odds of 1.80 knowing both sides fired well at the weekend.
