Cardiff 2/1 to beat Derby in Sundays Championship clash

Competition: Championship
Market: Cardiff to beat Derby
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365

Looking to continue their fine run of form on Sunday afternoon, Neil Warnock’s high-flying Bluebirds will travel to stalling playoff hopefuls Derby County as they continue to cut Wolves advantage at the top of the Championship table.

For the hosts on Sunday afternoon, despite a bright start to their Championship campaign, Derby have been unable to keep up their early momentum and now find themselves in a battle to secure a playoff position come the end of the season. Although the Rams still sit fifth in the table, they have freefallen out of the automatic promotion spots and now only sit three points above seventh place Sheffield United. As for their recent form, while Gary Rowett’s side continues to avoid losing their matchups, Derby have failed to win any of their last seven outings, drawing five of those games. If Derby intend to shore up their promotion ambitions, then Rowett’s side will need to improve their form at Pride Park, the Rams now just have one home win in their last seven attempts.

As for the visitors, life under former QPR boss Neil Warnock could not be going any better for the Bluebirds. With their return to the Premier League looking more likely by the week, Cardiff will be glad to see their boss has signed a contract extension at the Cardiff City Stadium. Currently sat second in the Championship table, Cardiff are in the driving seat for automatic promotion, the Bluebirds now sit just three points behind league leaders Wolves. In terms of their recent form, Cardiff are coming off the back of a 3-1 win away at playoff hopefuls Brentford and moved their new record on to seven played, seven wins, Warnock’s side are also unbeaten in their last seven away matches, winning the last three on the bounce.
