Peterborough vs Derby Odds, Free Betting Tps, & Predictions

We believe any Peterborough vs Derby prediction made below is a likely outcome, with the Posh not having any room for errors if they still want to make the playoffs.

Peterborough to Win

Our first Peterborough vs Derby prediction backs the hosts to claim the win. The Posh really have no choice but to go all out for it in the coming vital 6-pointer as they trail Derby by 4 points in the standings and only wins could see them sneak into the top 6.

Posh certainly enter this game high on confidence after being able to achieve 3 big wins in just the last 4 rounds. At the same time, Derby’s form has been in sharp decline lately. The Rams had been particularly poor on their travels in recent times and they lost 3 of their last 4 away league matches.

Clarke-Harris to Score Anytime

With our next Peterborough vs Derby prediction we explore the possibility for League One’s leading scored Clarke-Harris to find the back of the net again. With his 22 league goals, Peterborough’s captain has been in sensational form all season. Clarke-Harris seems to be only getting better as the season progresses too and he has now scored 6 goals in just the last 7 rounds. He now faces a Derby team that failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 7 away matches.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final free betting tip is that there will be more than 2 goals scored in this match between two teams in desperate need of points. All of Derby’s last 6 away league games had at least 3 goals in them. Also, 6 of Peterborough’s last 8 matches produced 3 goals or more.

Peterborough vs Derby Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Peterborough

Peterborough impressed when beating Lincoln 3-0 away last weekend. The Posh became the first team this season to beat the Imps in their own stadium and the entire display was very good. Clarke-Harris continued his lethal form in this match with yet another goal to add to his tally.

The manager is very likely to stick to the same lineup, although he will have to make one forced change. Important centre-back Edwards is away on international duty. In his absence, Knight is expected to start. Centre-back Watts is the only sidelined player.

Derby

Derby’s poor run of form continued with a 0-2 home loss against Fleetwood. The awful opening half of this match proved costly. The manager was so angry that he made 2 substitutions even before halftime.

With 3 defeats and only 2 wins in the last 6 rounds Derby not only lost all hope of a direct promotion, but they suddenly find themselves in a situation where they need points just to stay in the top 6.

Key playmaker Knight misses this game as he is away on international duty. Winger Mendez-Laing also could be absent due to a knock, but in Dobbin pretty good cover for his role is available. Changes to the lineup are certain and top scorer McGoldrick + winger Bakrhuizen are expected to start again. At the same time, captain Davies has been in awful form lately and he’s very likely to be benched now.
