Derby County returned to winning ways as they thrashed struggling Birmingham City to the tune of 3-0 last time out and they will be hopeful of maintaining the momentum when they lock-horns with promotion hopefuls Bristol City in the opening Championship match of the weekend on Friday evening. The Rams have been clearly full of confidence in recent outings and most pundits are backing them to grab their fourth home win in five.

Derby County have been pretty hit-and-miss since their FA Cup exit at the hands of Manchester United, however this was their only defeat in nine outings in all competitions and we're confident that they will edge their way past the Robins on Friday evening.

Bristol City have generally impressed this season although they have hit a sticky patch of late with five consecutive defeats since December. Lee Johnson's men have lost against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Aston Villa, Watford, Manchester City and Norwich City and it would appear that they are having a few problems all round. Clearly they are going to struggle against a Rams side which have returned to excellent form and there is a real danger that they will drop out of the play-off places altogether should they fail to return to form.

We've seen at least three goals in all-but-one of Bristol City's last five matches and we envisage another thrilling affair when they travel to the East Midlands on Friday evening. As such, we'll be going with a Derby City win and both teams to score at odds of 7/2 with BetVictor Free Bets
