Top Cheltenham vs Derby County prediction and tips for League One

The game at Whaddon Road on the 14th of January between Cheltenham and Derby County is going to provide the fans with 90 minutes of world-class football and there are certainly a few betting tips that we can give you.

Cheltenham – Under 0.5 goals

Whaddon Road alone isn’t going to cut it. The home-field support will amount to nothing on matchday 27 as Derby County’s defense is as robust as it can possibly be. With 17 goals conceded in 24 games, Derby County’s defensive line is second to none. There’s not a single club that performs as well at the back as the Rams and our Cheltenham vs Derby County prediction this week is adamant – Cheltenham will not score a single goal.

Derby County to win

It’s no surprise the bookies favor the Rams to win this game. Derby County have been sensational this season and the players are on the right track to promotion. Coach Paul Warne’s record against Cheltenham is more than convincing and with two victories in two games, it’s fair to say that he’ll go for a third consecutive win over this troubled Cheltenham side on Saturday.

David McGoldrick to score

Wade Elliott will have to find a solution to the David McGoldrick equation as the Irish veteran has been sensational this season. There’s no sure method to stop a juggernaut like David McGoldrick as he is Derby County’s top scorer this season and he’ll certainly be raring to go on Saturday.

He rolled it home past the goalkeepers on eight occasions in this league campaign but he’s certainly not a one-trick pony. With three assists to his name, he’s definitely the whole package as the coach relies heavily on him to lead the attack.

Cheltenham vs Derby County: preview for League One

Make sure you’ve given our brief Cheltenham vs Derby County match preview a nice look as it may help you make the right betting call.

Cheltenham

The Robbins are one of the weaker League One sides this season as coach Wade Elliott’s boys barely managed to scrape 28 points in the 2022/23 race. With four defeats and only one victory in the last five league showdowns, it’s fair to say that Cheltenham are no one’s favorite to achieve something significant this season.

Derby County

The Rams aren’t in 1st or 2nd place in League one but you can never rule them out from the title fight as they are the most prolific English team currently participating in League One. With 11 victories, eight draws, and only five losses, Paul Warne’s boys are certainly still a contender for the trophy this season.
