Predicting Derby County’s next five Championship games

Derby County will face Cardiff City, Hull City, Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton & Hove Albion and Bristol City in their next five Championship matches.

Derby County v Cardiff City (November 21)

Derby County will be determined to return to winning ways this weekend, having lost to Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the City Ground just before the international break.

The Rams will be favourites to win against Cardiff at the iPro Stadium, and they should be able to pick up all three points.

Derby County 2-0 Cardiff City

Hull City v Derby County (November 27)

This promises to be a very competitive and entertaining match, one which hosts Hull City should narrowly win.

Hull City 2-1 Derby County

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County (December 6)

Derby are a better team than Sheffield Wednesday and will be favourites to win this game.

However, if Wednesday get an early goal, then they could go on to pick up all three points at Hillsborough Stadium.

Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Derby County

Derby County v Brighton & Hove Albion (December 12)

This is a tough match to call. A single goal could decide the outcome.

Derby County 1-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

Derby County v Bristol City (December 15)

Anything other than a comprehensive Derby win against a relegation-threatened Bristol City side will be a huge surprise.
