Our tipster is backing the Cottagers to claw back the deficit against Gary Rowett’s Rams in the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final

After a 1-0 defeat at the iPro Stadium in the first leg of this Championship play-off semi-final, Fulham have it all to do against Derby County in the second leg on Monday night.

Cameron Jerome's first half strike set the Rams on the road to victory, with the Cottagers managing just two shots on target despite having nearly 75 per cent of the ball.

The Whites began the play-offs as favourites for promotion but have moved to second favourites at 11/5 (3.20) with dabblebet following Friday’s result, while their visitors are 3/1 (4.0) .

Latest odds

Fulham, hoping to win their first ever play-off game since the format was invented in 1986, are 8/13 (1.62) to claim victory inside 90 minutes.

Derby, finalists in 2014, are 17/4 (5.25) to win this second leg or 14/5 (3.80) to secure a draw, and either outcome would seal their place at Wembley without extra time.

Team News

Andreas Weimann looks set to slot in at left wing-back after it was confirmed Marcus Olsson will be out for nine months with a knee injury.

Slavisa Jokanovic must decide whether to play Floyd Ayite or Lucas Piazon on the right of the front three, with Sheyi Ojo unavailable.

Goals for Fulham?

The Whites had something to protect in the first leg, which partially explains why right-back Ryan Fredericks and midfielder Stefan Johansen did not break into forward areas as much as usual..

However, with nothing to lose here, it is fair to expect to see more of the Fulham side that has scored 164 goals over the last two Championship campaigns.

The  21/10 (3.10) on the hosts scoring over 2.5 goals therefore appeals.

Preview and predictions

For our best bet, a Fulham win with over 1.5 goals at 19/20 (1.95)   looks good value, and will land if they win the second leg by a scoreline other than 1-0.

As well as Derby did to establish a lead, the west Londoners should be much-improved here as they look to find the form that led them to third place in the league.
