Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Pride Park when Derby County and West Bromwich Albion face each other in the Championship round 24. The Rams did well to make amends for back-to-back losses to QPR and Bristol City, with the team beating Blackpool thanks to Luke Piange’s goal. The teenager should keep his place in the starting XI, while all Festy Ebosele, Colin Kazim-Richards, Ravel Morrison, Kelle Roos, and Nathan Byrne have been tested positive for coronavirus.
The Baggies, on the other hand, aim to climb to automatic promotion places, and given the number of absentees in the home team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Valerien Ismael’s men. The likes of Zohore, Snodgrass, Phillips, Bryan, and O’Shea should miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.

Craig Forsyth is a left back who is capable of playing as a midfielder as well. The Derby County footballer was born on 24 February, 1989 and he started his youth career at Carlogie Boys Club.
