Key Port Vale vs Derby County prediction for League One

In this article, you’ll familiarize yourself with our professional Port Vale vs Derby County prediction for matchday 26 in League One.

Derby County to win

The Rams faced one of the most prolific English teams currently in League One in the last match. Bolton Wanderers are a hard nut to crack but Paul Warne had an answer to everything Ian Evatt could throw at him.

And Port Vale are certainly no Bolton Wanderers. Sure, Derby County will be deprived of the comfy home-field support at Pride Park but even in the away games, the Rams are consistent with the last victim being Cheltenham who lost with a 2:3 score.

Under 0.5 Port Vale goals

The Valiants can’t exactly brag with a solid attacking trio as the team has only 27 goals this season. With the 2022/23 League One campaign going so poorly in terms of attack, we can’t possibly expect Port Vale to score against the 2nd-best defensive line in the league. Our second Port Vale vs Derby County prediction says that Joe Wildsmith will keep a clean sheet just like he did a couple of days ago when the Rams faced Cambridge, Barnsley, and Accrington Stanley.

David McGoldrick to score

The one-man-army, David McGoldrick, is the sort of player who can make a difference in dire situations. And Port Vale’s players will certainly try to give Derby County a run for their money. The 35-year-old striker has been at his lethal best this season. He found the net on eight occasions and provided teammates with two assists. Him being on penalty duty at Derby County will certainly boost our Port Vale vs Derby County prediction’s chances to be a success.

Port Vale vs Derby County: match preview & facts

Make sure to check out the information contained in our match preview before you proceed with your bet-making decisions.

Port Vale

The Valiants’ are a team with a rather mediocre performance this season. The 10 victories, five draws, and 10 losses in 25 games aren’t convincing anyone that Port Vale deserve to be anything different than a mid-table League One side, and coach Darrel Clarke knows it.

Derby County

With four wins in a row, the Rams currently have the best momentum in League One. Sure, Plymouth Argyle and Ipswich Town are higher up the chart than Derby County but neither of these teams can brag with momentum as serious as Derby County’s.
