Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Highbury Stadium when Fleetwood and Derby County square off against each other in the League One round 5. The Cod Army aim to extend their unbeaten run to four games, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash. Spain forward Carlos Gomes limped off with injury in Tuesday’s clash, with Joe Garner likely to step up. The Rams, on the other hand, are on a quest to return to the Championship, and their fine start to the season is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism.
New boss Liam Senior is doing a good job with the Pride Park outfit, but his men failed to turn their dominance into victory against Shrewsbury (0-0). Anyhow, Derby County are more of a team than Fleetwood, and we predict that they will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, but talented midfielder Louie Sibley could be recalled to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Callum Camps):
Callum Camps is yet another product of Rochdale football school. Born in Stockport, England on November 30, 1995, Camps came through Rochdale youth team before making his senior debut on April 13, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Port Vale.
He has been playing for the Dale ever since and it has to be noted that his most successful season was the 2016/2017 as he scored eight goals in 44 appearances in the League one for the club. Despite being born in England, Callum Caps is eligible to play for Northern Ireland national team through his grandmother, but he has only one cap with the Northern Ireland U21 team.
He made his debut with the U21 team in a 2-1 loss to Macedonia on October 13, 2015. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and attacking midfielder as well.
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.
