Competition: Premier League
Market: Fulham to beat Derby County and both teams to score
Odds: 4/1 @ Bet365
Fulham must put the disappointment of missing out on automatic promotion to the Premier League behind them as they face a tough Championship play-off semi-final against Derby County.
For Gary Rowett’s Derby County side, although The Rams were worried that their poor form in the New Year would cost them a playoff position, Rowett’s men’s late push has seen them secure that vital sixth spot. While The Rams are unbeaten in their last three Championship appearances and have drastically improved their form in the final third, Rowett will be worried about his sides continues defensive issues, The Rams have now only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last six and have also only registered a single clean sheet at Pride Park since the start of February.
As for Slaviša Jokanović’s Fulham side, this will be the ultimate test to see how his side battle back. Coming off the back of a 3-1 loss to Birmingham, ending their 20 matches unbeaten run and crushing their automatic promotion dreams, The Cottagers must now show why they’re tipped by many as the clear playoff favorites. One man to watch for Fulham will be on loan Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Serbian international has now scored 14 goals since making the move to Craven Cottage and also has four in his last five.
