Derby’s fixture schedule doesn’t get any easier as they return to Championship action this weekend with an away trip to Ashton Gate. Fifth-placed Bristol City await them next, hoping to string together three league wins for the first time in 2020.

By contrast, the Rams are rooted bottom of the division, sacked manager Phillip Cocu and will be under interim charge by multiple backroom staff this weekend. How will they fare? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Bristol City vs Derby County Betting Tips

The manner of Cocu’s acrimonious departure has dominated the news in recent days, as the Dutchman – who only took this job last summer – was sacked last weekend.

A new manager will not be appointed until new owners arrive, so player-coach Wayne Rooney and first-team coach Liam Rosenior will oversee matters. Shay Given and developmental man Justin Walker are also involved, so watch how that dynamic works here.

As mentioned, Bristol are enjoying an encouraging run and just two points off leaders Reading. Slender victories against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff snapped a five-match winless run, dating back to early October, so can they continue that forward momentum now?

Nahki Wells has only scored two goals from open play this term, but he and Jamie Paterson will be key for Bristol here. Despite his memorable cameo (three successful dribbles, two key passes and tackles) in their 2-0 loss to Barnsley before the break, this fixture perhaps is too soon for Poland’s Kamil Jozwiak.

He’s one of few Derby players featuring internationally in Nations League play, so I expect he and influential winger Tom Lawrence (Wales) won’t start. Does that impact their chances here? Probably, as happened during their 1-0 defeat by Watford last month.

Bristol City vs Derby County Correct Score Predictions

Derby narrowly lead the H2H (W7, D5, L6) but this is a tightly-contested clash.

It’s usually a high-scoring fixture too, one Bristol haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last four meetings. Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine matches, a stat foreshadowing goals here.
