Derby County v Wolverhampton Wanderers (October 18)
Derby County have started to pick up points and form, and they should be considered favourites to win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Playing at home will give Paul Clement’s side an advantage, and the players will be looking to give a good account of themselves at the iPro Stadium.
Derby County 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Blackburn Rovers v Derby County (October 21)
An easy away win for Derby? On paper, yes. The Rams have better players and are in better form, although Blackburn Rovers will want to make their home advantage count.
Blackburn Rovers 1-3 Derby County
Huddersfield Town v Derby County (October 24)
Another away win for Clement’s side? Absolutely. Huddersfield Town are just two points above the Championship relegation zone at the moment and will not be able to cope with the quality of the Derby players.
Huddersfield Town 0-3 Derby County
Derby County v Rotherham United (October 31)
Like Huddersfield, Rotherham are struggling for survival in the Championship, but they have a new manager in charge.
Former Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn knows the second tier of English football well, but does he have a team capable of defeating Derby at the iPro Stadium?
Derby County 3-0 Rotherham United
