Saturday’s 4-0 win at home to Bolton means it’s confidence restored ahead of this Friday’s crucial clash at Birmingham City.

They’re all crucial at this stage of course, and with five games to go we still need to make up a couple of points to secure a place in the play-offs.

Even without Birmingham’s nine-point deduction they’d still be out of play-off contention, and they in fact still have work to do to stay up – but four points from their last two home games against Leeds & Sheffield United suggests it won’t be an easy ride at St. Andrew’s.

Let’s take a look at where the smart money’s going to our official betting partners, Coral.

Birmingham start as slight favourites meaning you can back the Rams at 7/4 to win the match, 9/2 to win with both teams scoring or 18/5 to win to nil.

If you’re expecting a comfortable afternoon in the West Midlands, back Derby at 10/1 to win both halves, or 14/1 to win from behind if you think it’ll be a more dramatic affair!

HT/FT is always a popular market, so your prices there are as follows: Derby/Derby at 19/5, Draw/Derby 5/1 or Birmingham/Derby 33/1.

Our last four matches have yielded 19 goals (13 for, 6 against) so if you fancy that run to continue you can back +4.5 goals at 7/1.

Our recent record against Birmingham gives us plenty of reasons to be cheerful, as we’ve won four and drawn one of the last five. We’ve already beaten them 3-1 at Pride Park this season, and won away last year 3-0.

Good Friday would be a great Friday if we were to win by the same score again – back it at 33/1 with Coral!
