Derby County v Birmingham City Betting Preview

Derby head into the game having won six of their seventeen matches played which has them placed in 13th position in the league table and if manager Nigel Clough has any ambitions of making it into the play offs then his side must start winning more games.

Birmingham head into the game having won just five for their seventeen matches played so far and as a result occupy 19th position in the league table and just 7pts above the relegation zone and it does seem like Lee Clark’s side just haven’t got going this season.

Derby v Birmingham Team News

Derby Team News : 20 year old Jeff Hendrick looks a doubt as manager Brian Clough insists the player takes a rest having played in all but one of the 17 games this season. Jamie Ward is still lacking match fitness and doesn’t look like being involved for at least another week or two.

Birmingham Team News : Curtis Davies returns for Birmingham having been sidelined in recent weeks with an ankle problem which he has now fully recovered from. Robert Hall who arrived midweek on loan from West Ham looks likely to be handed his full debut. Paul Caddis, David Murphy and Captain Stephen Carr all still remain out with respective injuries.

Derby v Birmingham Head to Head Statistics

Saturday evening’s fixture from Pride Park Stadium will become the 69th meeting between these two sides over the years and all the results of those previous matches can be seen in our head to head statistics table shown below.

  • Derby Victories : 22 (15 at Pride Park Stadium)
  • Derby Goals Scored : 98 (59 at Pride Park Stadium)
  • Draws : 20 (14 at Pride Park Stadium)
  • Birmingham Victories : 26 (6 at Pride Park Stadium)
  • Birmingham Goals Scored : 97 (35 at Pride Park Stadium)

Birmingham have the advantage overall having won 26 games compared to Derby having won 22 games, but matches played at Pride Park Stadium see Derby with a very strong advantage having won 15 compared to Birmingham’s 6.

94 goals have been scored in the previous 35 matches played between the sides at Pride Park Stadium which provides us with a 2.68 average goals per match statistic which suggests a couple should go in on saturday evening.

Derby v Birmingham Betting Predictions

Neither of these two sides in my opinion are going to be involved in the end of season play off’s, but both have squad’s available to them to ensure they don’t get dragged into a relegation fight for survival and from their performances shown up until now this game looks likely to see each side cancel the other one out and a strong possibility of finishing all square come the full time whistle.

The head to head stats show that this fixture is one that Birmingham have found difficult over the years, but they did beat Derby twice back in 2010 and although they did lose this fixture last season 2-1, Birmingham did take the lead in that game.

The goal stats suggest a game that should see at least a couple of goals hit the back of the nets on saturday evening and for me this looks the most sensible place to concentrate on when looking for a betting opportunity as this result in my opinion could go either way come the full time whistle.
