Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s football game at Adams Park pits together Wycombe Wanderers and Derby County, the two teams who sit in the bottom half of the table. Wycombe’s Championship status is in great danger as they are ten points behind the safe zone, but a 3-2 win at Huddersfield gave them a confidence boost. The relegation strugglers have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Derby, and we are positive that they will find the net in the midweek fixture.
Dominic Gape is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Jordan Obita should be recalled to the starting XI. The Rams, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Rotherham United, with the team beating Middlesbrough 2-1. Wayne Rooney’s charges aim to move away from bottom three, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Bielik, Davies, and Lawrence are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jason McCarthy):
Jason McCarthy is a product of the famous Southampton youth academy. McCarthy started his youth career in his hometown club back in 2002 and he made his senior debut with the Saints in the Premier League on December 26, 2014, coming as a substitute for Nathaniel Clyne in a 3-1 away victory at Crystal Palace.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall, the English defender signed a three-year deal with Barnsley in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee. Jason McCarthy was struggling to secure a first-team football at the Oakwell stadium outfit and, as a result, he returned to Wycombe Wanderers on August 9, 2018, penning a three-year contract with the League One side.
His preferred foot is right, his main position centre-back, but he is used as a right-back as well. Jason McCarthy was born in Southampton on November 7, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Derby):
Derby County is one of the 12 founder members of the Football League. However, nowadays the Rams compete in the Championship and they play their home matches at Pride Park Stadium. Derby County have won the two trophies in the English top flight (1971/1972, 1974/1975), with the team lifting the FA Cup trophy just after the World War II (1946).
Derby’s main rivals are Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Leeds United, but the rivalry between Forest and Derby is regarded as the biggest one.
The two teams take on each other in the East Midlands derby. The colour of Derby’s shirts is white, whilst their shorts are black. It has to be noted that the club was founded in 1884 by William Morley. The Rams competed in the European competitions four times, but they did not record a notable result in the European Cups. The club’s chairman is Mel Morris.
