Market: Derby to win the playoff final
Odds: 8/11 @ Betfair
Manager Steve McClaren will square off with his former employer Harry Redknapp when Derby County face Queens Park Rangers in the Championship playoff final this afternoon.
McClaren was a coach for Queens Park Rangers earlier this season when he was out of work, but left after three months and was appointed manager of the Rams, a decision which has been justified.
Derby have enjoyed a fantastic season, finishing in third place with 85 points. They ended the campaign five points ahead of QPR, and did beat them this year when the two sides met in February.
As a result, Betfair are backing the Rams to achieve promotion with a win today, giving them odds of 8/11.
Queens Park Rangers had a troubling end to the season, with three defeats and two draws from their last eight games in the league. They beat Wigan Athletic over two legs to book their place in the final and Redknapp knows this could be his last chance to manage in the Premier League.
