Derby County will take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship this afternoon.

Former Newcastle United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that Derby County will win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at home in the Championship this afternoon.

“Predicting Championship results is notoriously hard though, and Derby have only conceded seven goals in ten league games and beat Wolves 5-0 in this fixture last year – with Wolves winning the reverse game 2-0! – so it’s 2-0 and 2-1 Derby for me,” the former Liverpool star wrote on Colossusbets.com.

Derby will head into this afternoon’s encounter at the iPro Stadium on the back of a 2-0 win against Brentford at home in the Championship.

Paul Clement’s side are seventh in the league table at the moment with 17 points from 10 matches, just two points behind sixth-place Hull City with a game in hand.

The Rams are unbeaten in their last five league matches, winning four, and will be favourites to pick up all three points today.

Meanwhile, Wolves will head into the game placed 11th in the Championship table with 15 points from 10 matches.

Kenny Jackett’s side are challenging for promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season, just like Derby, although their ambition is probably to finish in the playoffs and not in the top two.

Wolves defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0 at home in their last Championship match, which was before the international break.
