Burton v Derby County betting tips - Rams to slay Albion at the Pirelli Stadium

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough pits his wits against his former club Derby County.

Burton Albion welcome Derby County to the Pirelli Stadium on Friday, August 26 at 19:45 BST in a Championship contest and will aim to claim an early scalp against the Rams. 


Get 13/10 on Derby County to beat Burton Albion with bet365

Though they are separated by just a solitary point, it is arguably Burton who have strung together the superior performances and have a number of players experiencing solid individual form. 

Derby, in 16th place in the Championship table and two rungs higher than Burton, are still adjusting to Nigel Pearson's stewardship but have the capability to make things extraordinarily difficult for Nigel Clough's team.

Derby, after all, have terrific history against promoted sides (winning six of their last ten matches at the homes of promoted clubs) and losing ust five of their last 38 trips to teams at the bottom of the Championship. 

This encounter is a personal one for Clough as it sees him up against his former side, whom he has not coached since his sacking three years ago. 

Key Derby player George Thorne is out of action, while Andreas Weimann and Jeff Hendrick are also sidelined. Bradley Johnson is also an injury doubt. 

Burton have reported a full complement of Albion players and won't likely make any changes since their last league game, but loan star John Brayford, could make the first start of his second stint at Burton. 

Will Hughes is undoubtedly Derby's most influential player and the midfielder will be hoping to establish control of the central regions, particularly as Tom Naylor and Matthew Palmer are performing so well for Burton.

Derby are a 13/10 favourite with bet365 in this match, while the draw is available at 12/5. Burton victory odds are priced in at 5/2 with Marathonbet.

Neither side has hit goal-scoring form yet, with Derby particularly gun-shy so Derby to win with under 3.5 goals scored in total at 9/5 with StanJames.com could be a steal. Burton to win with under 3.5 goals scored is 14/5 with the same bookmaker. 

And finally, for the adventurous betters, the correct score market could offer some tempting prices with 8/1 on a Derby 2-1 win and 11/1 with a Burton 2-1 win, both with bet365.
