Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Pride Park when Derby County and Blackburn Rovers go head to head in the Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Rams made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to Reading and Luton in the league, while losing to Preston in the EFL Cup round 2. Wayne Rooney and Co. are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s showdown.
The good news for the hosts is that Dutch defender Mike te Wierik returns to contention after serving his one-match ban at the weekend. The Riversiders, on the other hand, rolled over Wycombe 5-0 to climb to the top half of the standings. Blackburn are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Derbyshire, and they should take advantage of the Rams’ current form.
