What Trueform says for West Brom vs Derby
West Brom’s Championship title hopes took a knock at Wigan on Saturday but they are fancied to return to winning ways on home turf against Derby.
The Baggies achieved a high Trueform rating for beating Reading 4-1 at The Hawthorns before the international break and that was a fifth straight league victory at this venue.
With County having picked up just one point from their last three road trips in this division, Albion get a strong vote at 19/20 for our first West Brom vs Derby prediction.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom boss Darren Moore had no excuses for his side’s 1-0 defeat at DW Stadium, where Josh Windass struck on 74 minutes and then hopes of hitting back were dashed when Jake Livermore was dismissed.
“We’ve all seen the Championship for long enough to know those sort of games are lying in wait for you,” Moore said. “And I’ve got absolutely no complaints on the day.
“Sometimes in football you can’t quite put your finger on what’s gone wrong. For so many weeks now, we’ve scored goals in the last half an hour, but this time it just didn’t happen for us.”
That was an honest appraisal from the Albion manager and we’re also happy to just forgive and forget one blip at this stage.
The Baggies had previously gone seven league games without losing, with 18 goals scored in those matches and five wins secured.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Derby continued a good run of home results when knocking Sheffield United off the top of the table with a 2-1 success.
Jack Marriott set up Craig Bryson for a lightning-fast strike and then bagged a 77th-minute winner himself after Chris Basham had levelled just before the break.
Frank Lampard was full of praise for Marriott, who was on target for the second straight game.
“Jack was probably a bit short on fitness when he got here, so that took a few weeks, but he loves practising and he’s improving because the more you practice, the more you improve,” said the rookie manager.
“He looks lean, he looks fast, committed to defend for the team and, more than that, he can get us goals.”
The Rams are playing well enough to get on the scoresheet again here, but their recent away form has been patchy and that makes them worth opposing against a team which has netted 20 times in six home fixtures.
Let’s add 13/5 for Albion to prevail and both teams to score to our West Brom vs Derby betting tips.
