Derby will be looking to get back on the winning train when they host Sheffield United in an English Championship match at Pride Park on Saturday, kick-off at 18h30.

Frank Lampard’s Derby are winless in three and in danger of dropping out of the race for automatic promotion yet again.

Their task is simple: beat league leaders Sheffield United, who have won four of their last five away games, scoring 2+ goals in those wins after a poor start to the season.

Aside from Leeds in their opener, Derby have conceded less than 1.5 goals in their other five league games at Pride Park. However, they have also conceded first in four of their last six league games (home and away), recovering just four points from a possible 12 after shipping the opener.

Two of Sheffield United’s last three away league wins have also come following a half-time lead for ‘The Blades’. In a sequence stretching back to last season, they have also taken a full set of 12 away points from the last four league games in which they have scored first on the road.

The visitors seem to particularly thrive in the latter part of matches, scoring after the 75-minute mark in each of their last two away games. By extension, all four of their away wins in the league this season have seen the Blades score at least once after the 60-minute mark.

You can watch the match live on Fox Sports 1, with the broadcast starting from 18h25 (CAT).
