Prediction Derby County vs Blackpool
Derby County appear to have accepted their fate of being relegated after a hefty 20-point deduction and their previous consistency has been absent in recent weeks.
Even so, the Rams are still relatively solid at home and their chances are further enhanced by Blackpool’s recent games. The poor form on both sides does not suggest this will be an explosive match and we are backing the spoils to be split in a low-scoring draw.
