What a match we have in prospect here. Both sides are chasing a promotion place and it is currently Derby County who have the advantage, just. Frank Lampard’s side are in pole position as things stand in sixth, but they’re only there ahead of Middlesbrough on goal difference and this weekend’s opponents Bristol City are just a point further back in eighth. There is one place left to fight for.
Bristol City have only picked up one point from their last three matches and they need to start winning again if they are to get that play-off spot. Both themselves and Derby have a game in hand on Middlesbrough and that could be vital in proceedings.
Derby have picked up seven points from their last three matches and have only lost once in nine games, however away from home is where they have been struggling a bit. They have drawn two of their last three away and haven’t won on the road in eight league games.
With the form of both sides considered, the draw looks the most likely outcome here and that is where we’re starting off our Bristol City vs Derby predictions. The odds are 23/10 at Ladbrokes where you can collect their £30 sign-up bonus when you register.
For our anytime scorer tip on this Championship clash, we’re taking a punt on Bristol City’s Josh Brownhill keeping up his good run of goalscoring form. He’s scored twice in his last four matches from midfield and is best odds 11/2 to score again in this one.

We’re already predicting a draw in this match and so it makes sense to go with a correct score prediction too. Bristol City have drawn three of their last four matches at Aston Gate and two of these have ended 1-1. Derby struggle to win away from home but do draw a lot on their travels, recently drawing against both Brentford and Birmingham City away from home.
With all things considered it is hard to see this one ending 0-0, so a bet on either 1-1 or 2-2 looks the best options here – you could even back both. However, we’re putting our neck on the line and going with a 1-1 draw to complete the Bristol City vs Derby betting tips for Saturday’s match.
Bristol City to win – 13/10
Draw – 23/10
Derby to win – 2/1
