Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Weston Homes Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Peterborough and Derby County, the two promotion-chasing teams. Following three consecutive wins at the start of the season, Peterborough suffered a 1-0 loss to Northampton at the weekend, but this loss should not affect the team’s confidence. All Ajiboye, Tomlinson, and Jones are pushing for recalls to the starting XI after the trio came off the bench in the last league fixture.
Meanwhile, the Rams aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fleetwood, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Peterborough, who are tough to beat at home. Taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards at Weston Homes Stadium. A man to keep an eye on in the visiting team will be experienced forward Martyn Waghorn, who scored the winner against Fleetwood at the weekend.
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.
