Derby vs Cardiff (By: TFB)
A big match in the Championship sees Derby County welcome Cardiff City to Pride Park in a re-scheduled match.
Derby were flying high in 2nd place around Christmas time but they have since seen just 4 wins in 2018 and only 2 wins in their last 13 matches. More recently have they suffered 3 consecutive defeats against Wolves, Burton Albion and Middlesbrough. The form of the Rams has not been great and they not sit outside the play-off places in 7th position.
Cardiff currently sit in Derby's old position, 2nd place. The Bluebirds are showing much better form and despite two losses to two top sides in Wolves and Villa they are unbeaten since the opening fixture of 2018, a 2-1 loss to QPR which was the last of their 4 game losing streak.
A win for Cardiff would almost cement their return to the Premier League by opening up a 4 point lead over Fulham with just 2 games remaining.
Derby will be without Ikechi Anya and Sam Winnall and Craig Bryson will be ineligible for Cardiff. Neither side look to have new injury worries.
Expect Cardiff to avoid defeat.
