Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following a 2-0 loss to Peterborough, Port Vale will look to get back on course when they face Derby County on Matchday 26. The Valiants have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to both Sheffield Wednesday and Peterborough, while beating Morecambe and Forest Green. Port Vale want to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash.
This match comes too soon for James Wilson, while Ellis Harrison is a major doubt. The Rams, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win, but beating Port Vale on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. As for the away side, William Osula is back to the starting XI after serving his three-game ban.

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.
