thumbnail Hello,

After securing their fourth win in a row midweek, the Rams host the Tangerines at the Ipro Stadium, with our tipster backing goals from the home side

Derby County's rise up the Championship continued midweek, with a late goal giving them a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough. Steve McClaren has proved a huge hit in the Midlands, with his side currently sitting in fourth position.

Blackpool are the visitors at the weekend, with the Rams unsurprisingly favourites at 8/11 (1.73) with Bet365.

Paul Ince will be without Gary MacKenzie, Kirk Broadfoot and Ricardo Fuller for their trip to Derby, after all three were sent off against Yeovil Town in midweek. Ince was disgusted with his side after they went down 1-0, with all three players being sent off in the last five minutes.

Despite the result, the Tangerines still sit in the Championship playoff's in sixth position. Bet365 price them at 15/4 (4.75) to take all three points. The same firm prices the draw at 13/5 (3.60).

Since McClaren took over the reigns at Derby, they have only lost once, staying unbeaten at home. With the price of the Rams outright just to short to back, it's worth looking elsewhere.

Derby haven't been short of goals in recent weeks, netting nine in their last four games. With the Rams scoring for fun at home, the over 1.5 goals bet for Derby at 4/5 (1.80) with Bet365 looks too good to ignore.

This bet would have paid out in four of their last five home games since McClaren has been in charge. When you also consider Blackpool will be missing their two first choice central defenders due to suspension, expect the Rams to find the net at least twice.
