Wolves v Derby Past Meetings

This will be the 153rd competitive fixture between the two clubs, with County ahead on head-to-head victories with 65 wins compared to Wanderers 54.

The recent history of this fixture has been evenly balanced with four Derby victories, three for Wolves and two draws in the last nine meetings.

The clash earlier in the season saw Wolves run out 2-0 victors at Pride Park thanks to goals from Barry Douglas and Ivan Cavaleiro in either half.

The Rams won an entertaining encounter 3-2 at Molineux last season with Tom Ince scoring twice.


Wolves v Derby Stats

Wolves lead the Championship table by nine points after Friday night’s victory over second-placed Cardiff City, who still have a game in hand.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have dropped only two points in their last five matches and need only four points from their final five games to guarantee automatic promotion, and it could be secured in this game.

Derby have won each of their last two matches – 1-0 at Preston and 3-0 at home to Bolton – to cling on to their spot inside the playoff places.

The Rams currently lie fifth but are only three points above Millwall, in seventh, with their playoff hopes looking likely to go to the wire.


Wolves v Derby Team News

Wolves will continue with their 3-4-3 line-up which is usually headed by Diogo Jota and flanked by Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro, although Leo Bonatini and Benik Afobe started in the victory at Cardiff. Alfred N’Diaye will be among those pushing for a start.

Derby are expected to continue to deploy their 4-2-3-1 line-up which is headed by David Nugent and flanked by Andreas Weimann and Tom Lawrence, although Cameron Jermoe and Kasey Palmer are looking to push their way into the starting line-up.


Reason for Wolves v Derby Bets

Both these sides are in strong runs of form – Wolves have 13 points in their last five while Derby have lost just one of their last five and have won each of their last two games.

The Rams have three clean sheets in their last four – and two in a row away from home – so will prove formidable opposition for the league leaders.

Both teams are on course to achieve their ambitions and both would be content with a draw in this fixture.

Wolves have been similarly strong defensively, conceding just four goals in their last five outings and this is enough to ensure that at least one of the two sides should keep a clean sheet out in a tense, low-scoring encounter.
