Derby v Blackburn Prediction - Preview
Derby County F.C.
Derby County are at the bottom of the Championship 14 games into the campaign. They drew Coventry City 1-1 in their last match at Ricoh Arena. Matt Godden’s penalty conversion gave the Sky Blues the lead going into the half. However, 13 minutes after the resumption of the game, Graeme Shinnie found the back of the net and levelled for the Rams. Assistant manager Liam Rosenior–who filled in for Wayne Rooney due to the Derby boss’ illness–was happy for his side, claiming that “the energy, passion and quality in the second half was fantastic”. They hope to keep their undefeated streak as they host the Blue and Whites this weekend.
- Derby have lost 6 of their last league matches against Blackburn (W1 D1), losing both meetings last season.
- The Rams have had only one defeat in their last 8 league matches (W2 D5), but have been on a 4-straight-draw run.
Blackburn Rovers F.C.
Blackburn Rovers are at 12th in the league table, 12 places above Derby. They finally broke their winless slump with a 2-0 victory over Reading at Ewood Park. With no goals scored in the first half, Sam Gallagher and Tyrhys Dolan found the net three minutes of each other early in the second period. Gallagher was the man of the moment, having also provided the assist on Dolan’s netter. Manager Tony Mowbray said that they were able to capitalise on the Royals’ lack of a recognised striker to pull off the win despite having only 38% of possession the entire game. The Blue and Whites are looking to carry this momentum as they visit the Rams for their next encounter.
- Blackburn have not won 3 successive league matches against Derby since February 1992.
- Rovers have won only one of their last 12 away games in the Championship (D6 L5): a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest.

Derby v Blackburn Prediction - Final Thoughts
While Derby is not out of relegation trouble yet, the fact that they have ended their last few contests on at least a draw will keep them on their toes in the competition. But even with recent struggles, Blackburn are still in the thick of the fight as shown in their last game with Reading. Ben Brereton Diaz may be well adjusted by now after the international break, and he will be key to continuing the team’s momentum. Moreover the Blues and Whites are doing better on their goal scoring on average, compared to the Rams. Thus, we see Rovers getting a second consecutive win in this one. Let’s take a look at our predictions.
