Champions To Maul Rams At Pride Park



The penultimate game of the season and Derby's last home game see them host Championship winners Leeds united.


Derby find themselves 12th with 61 points and now with no chance off the playoffs despite restarting well with 3 wins and a draw but are now on a 3 game losing streak.


Leeds go into the game as champions, and head towards the Premier League for the first time since 2004,


They went into the restart with only one win in 3 but are now looking for their 5th straight win.


The reverse fixture resulted in a 1-1 draw and not much between the teams the last few years though Leeds hold a 57 - 38 win record over their hosts.


Team news

Philip Cocu is unlikely to move away from his favoured 4-2-3-1 set up and will look to frustrate Leeds.


Top scorer Martin Waghorn returns but are still without Andre Wisdom and Bielik.


Bielsa used White as a holding midfielder in the absence of Philips and is likely to persist with him.


Henandez looks set to continue on the bench


Prediction

Now Leeds are champions they will want to put on a show so I can see the Rams being firmly tethered in a 4-1 win for the visitors.
