DCFC vs Preston North End



The expectations were high, but Derby County did not have a strong start to the season and received inconclusive results. In this round, facing one of the brightest candidates for a promotion ticket like Preston will be an easy challenge for the "Sheep". Anyway, with home ground support, Derby County fans still have the right to hope for a good result to come to their beloved team.

Last season Derby County was almost able to fulfill its Premier League dream, reaching the Play-Off final but falling to Aston Villa. Along with the departure of Lampard, Pride Park has not been himself in this season. At this time, Phillip Cocu's army did not have a stable performance in the past rounds. Specifically, in the last 5 matches, The Rams only won 2 wins and 3 losses. Currently, this team is standing at position 16 with 21 points after 16 matches. It can be said that Derby County made their fans extremely disappointed when they were pushed out of the top position to the second half of the rankings and it is difficult to return to the promotion race. However, they should not be underestimated in this confrontation, because the last 10 meetings were unbeaten Derby before the opponent won 7 matches and drew 3.

The Preston guests are really sublime at the moment with a series of 3 consecutive victories and are ranked 2nd in the rankings. Moreover, the distance to the top of the current West Brom is only 2 points, so Preston will have more determination in the upcoming match and will create more difficulties for Derby County. However, facing a dirty opponent who could not win the last 10 meetings, it is clear that the problem is not easy that Preston has to face. Not to mention, Preston did not play too well on the away team when he won only 2/6 times away from the nearest home.
