Derby County v Aston Villa Predictions
Derby are playing some fantastic football at the moment, and fully deserve to be 4th in the Championship. There are some great attacking players in the side and some good options for the lone striker up front. Matej Vydra is the key man.
Derby do not have a great record against Aston Villa, having not won a competitive game against The Villans since December 2001. The Rams will certainly be looking to put this right on Saturday. Amongst the victories for Villa was a famous 6-0 win at Pride Park in Derby’s record breaking Premier League season.
Aston Villa are looking good now too and Steve Bruce knows exactly how to get success at Championship level and they’ll make it tough for Derby. However, the tip is for a narrow Derby win, with a 2-1 correct score.
