Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Derby and Brentford face each other at Pride Park on Matchday 43. The Rams failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at WBA, but despite the defeat, they remained in the race for the title. Talented winger Louie Sibley misses the Brentford game through suspension, while defender Duane Holmes is unlikely to recover in time to face the Bees. Brentford came from behind to beat Charlton Athletic 2-1 in midweek, with the team keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive.
The Bees should not stop now, and we predict that they will take advantage of the fact that Derby head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Despite failing to find the net against Charlton, a man to watch in the away team will be Olie Watkins, who has been scoring goals for fun after the coronavirus football break.
