Ian Holloway predicts Derby v Brentford

Derby County will face Brentford at the iPro Stadium in the Championship on Saturday.

Former Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway has predicted on Skysports.com that Derby County will win against Brentford this weekend.

Holloway believes that the Rams will win 3-0 against the Bees at the iPro Stadium in the Championship on Saturday, and has backed Tom Ince to score the opening goal of the game.

“I think Tom Ince will score the opening goal here,” the former Crystal Palace boss wrote on Skysports.com. “He’s one of my favourite players to have worked with and to watch.

“He's non-stop action, he moves at the right time - like a thoroughbred. He's got such quick feet and great balance. When he gets through, he scores.”

Easy win for Derby County?

Derby are in great form at the moment and will be heavy favourites to win on Saturday, especially as they are at home.

Paul Clement’s side will head into the match on the back of a 3-1 victory over Milton Keynes Dons away from home in the Championship.

The Rams picked up 10 points out of a possible 12 in September, and they will be determined to start the month of October with a victory.

Derby are ninth in the Championship table at the moment with 14 points from nine matches, just a point behind sixth-place Cardiff City.
