Derby to Win

Derby enter this match on a 12-game unbeaten run at home (W8 D4), with their last home league defeat way back in early October. The Rams have not lost against a side outside the top 8 since early October too, the last time this happened was in round 14. Also, Fleetwood are insecure on the road where they have lost 3 of their last 5 (W1 D1). All this makes us believe that Derby will record another home win.

Derby Clean Sheet

Our second Derby vs Fleetwood prediction is that the Rams will keep a clean sheet. They have been able to do so in 7 of their last 10 home league matches. Now against a Fleetwood team that failed to score in any of their last 3 away games and scored just 4 goals in the last 7 rounds, Derby will surely fancy their chances for another shutdown.

McGoldrick to Score Anytime

Our final Derby vs Fleetwood prediction is for Derby’s top scorer McGoldrick (16 goals) to continue his hot streak at home. McGoldrick has scored 14 of his 116 league goals so far in home matches. In fact, in the last 5 home games alone he netted 6 goals. He is in great form right now with at least 1 goal scored in 4 of his last 5 starts and after being fully rested last weekend the veteran striker should be picked from the off again in this one.

Derby vs Fleetwood Lineups and Team News

Derby

Derby were a bit shaky on their way to a deserved 3-2 away win against Oxford last weekend. The Rams needed a brace from Sibley for the win and twice they conceded equalisers. Still, the 3 points leave Derby in the top 6 and with everything to play for.

Bird made his return from injury in the last game and he could start again now. Also, McGoldrick and Knight are expected back in the starting lineup after being given rest last time around. Derby enter this match at full strength with only the fringe defender Chester missing out injured.

Fleetwood

Fleetwood drew 1-1 at home against Port Vale last weekend. Once again, the forward actions lacked conviction and needed a late equaliser to save this point. The Cod Army are now winless in 3 (D1 L2) but at least their lead over the relegation zone remains solid.

Striker Stockley sat on the bench in the last 2 games. Now he might start again in search of better forward actions. Winger Hayes could be involved too as he returns from a ban. Omochere remains doubtful, as does the left0back Andrew and the key inner midfielder Robertson. All 3 face late fitness tests.
