Competition: League One

Market: Derby win

Odds: 2/3 @ 1xBet

Desperate to make an immediate return to winning ways on Tuesday night, Derby will welcome Charlton to Pride Park.

Starting with the hosts, suffering a collapse away at Barnsley over the weekend as they eventually slumped to a 2-1 defeat, Derby will certainly be seeking an immediate response here. Nevertheless, still battling it out at the top of the League One table, the Rams are still tipped as a leading promotion contender in 2024. Losing just one of their previous six third-tier appearances, Paul Warne’s men should be smelling the chance to make a statement here. Opening February with a 1-0 victory away at Charlton, there is no doubt that the former Rotherham boss will be calling on a repeat display here. Likewise, last seen at Pride Park securing a 1-0 win against Stevenage, Derby have continued to shine with their performances on home soil. Including an action-packed 3-2 victory against Burton last month, Warne’s side have collected 10 points from their previous four League One showdowns in front of their own supporters. It’s also worth highlighting, the Rams have suffered just a single third-tier defeat at Pride Park since a 2-1 defeat against Oxford way back on August 15th.

As for the visitors, while Charlton might have clung to a 0-0 stalemate at home against Portsmouth over the weekend, the Addicks find themselves at the heart of a public League One nightmare. At the heart of a third-tier relegation scrap and opening Tuesday’s trip to Pride Park holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, new boss Nathan Jones has an almighty job on his hands in south London. Including a 2-0 loss against Reading earlier in the month, the former Southampton manager has seen his downbeat squad fail to win any of their previous 18 straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 28th. Rightfully coming under a huge amount of scrutiny this season and facing a real challenge on Tuesday night, the midweek guests have also failed to record a single League One victory on their travels since the end of October. Hit with a 1-0 defeat when they welcomed Derby to the Valley for their reverse League One meeting back on February 3rd, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
