Rams fine run can continue

Gary Rowett

Derby (11/4 to be promoted) are one of the form sides in the Championship and the Rams can take another big stride towards the top two on Tuesday.

Gary Rowett’s men (20/31 to win on Tuesday) currently sit in sixth ahead of the midweek clash with Ipswich but, with a win in this game in hand, could move to within five points of second-placed Cardiff.

The Midlanders have suffered just one defeat in 11 in the league and further proved their promotion credentials with a 3-0 away win at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

In contrast, Ipswich (17/4) have won just one of their last five matches and have collected just four points from a possible 24 in their last eight away games.

Ipswich have won on their last two visits to Pride Park, but this is a Derby team with impetus and the home side should have too much for Mick McCarthy’s thin squad.

The other game on Tuesday sees two teams in the bottom half meet, as Reading face Barnsley at the Madejski Stadium (Match Odds – Reading 20/21, Draw 51/20, Barnsley 29/10).
Both teams are on 20 points with goal difference keeping Barnsley one place above their opponents, despite losing their last two games at Oakwell.

But the Tykes’ away form has been good – unbeaten in their last four on the road – and

Paul Heckingbottom will demand a performance following their home defeat to Yorkshire rivals Leeds.

Reading meanwhile, have won just one of their last seven games at home – failing to score in four of those matches and look to be on a slippery slope.

The value bet looks to be Barnsley double-chance, which is available at 5/6.
