Rowett’s Rams to fell Forest


Matches between Nottingham Forest and Derby County are always feisty affairs and Sunday’s clash looks set to be no different as the Rams aim to get their promotion push back on track.

Gary Rowett’s side are without a victory in six Championship matches and have drawn six of their last 10.

They are nine points behind second-placed Cardiff City and seem destined for the play-offs. Derby can return to winning ways at The City Ground though against a Forest team that have eased their relegation concerns with a five-match unbeaten run. The Rams are 6/4 to win the game.

Wolves moved a step closer to sealing promotion by thrashing Leeds United at Elland Road in midweek and will be keen to complete the double over third-placed Aston Villa, who they beat 2-0 at Molineux in October.

Steve Bruce’s team have won nine of their last 11 league games but may be happy to settle for a draw, available at 43/20, against the league leaders.

Fulham are the form team in the Championship, propelling themselves up to fourth in the table on the back of a 14-match unbeaten run.

The Cottagers face a tricky match at Deepdale on Saturday though as eighth-placed Preston have recorded back-to-back victories against Bolton and Bristol City and have only lost two of their last 20 matches. A 1-1 draw at 5/1 may be the best bet in this one.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Hull can ease their relegation worries by beating mid-table Norwich City. A Tigers victory and both teams to score can be backed at 7/2.

Tony Pulis has galvanised Middlesbrough who have leapt into the play-off spots by taking 10 points from their last four games.

They should ease to victory against a Barnsley team that are only one place above the drop-zone and 2/1 to be relegated. A comprehensive 3-0 win for Boro should not be ignored at 21/2.

Seventh-placed Bristol City can get their play-off push back on track by winning at-Burton Albion at 20/23 while Gary Madine is 17/4 to score the first goal when Cardiff City entertain Birmingham City.
