Derby County – Cardiff Championship 24 April 2018

Derby County – Cardiff Championship

Wolverhampton, Burton and Middlesbrough have recently beaten the Derby County in quick succession, whose race for a possible playoff qualification has suddenly become more difficult. The team coached by Gary Rowett, however, can still hope: if you get a positive result in this recovery, in fact, would return in full swing for the playoffs that will offer a place in the next edition of the Premier League.

Cardiff, however, is not an easy obstacle: second in Championship, aspires to direct promotion and comes from two precious victories, obtained against Norwich and Nottingham Forest. The training team led by Neil Warnock has long had to deal with the non-optimal conditions of Jazz Richards, a player who usually plays for a full-back or a containment midfielder, but has no other major problems to deal with.

The movements of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Kenneth Zohore and Junior Hoilett could put in difficulty the Derby County, which presumably will field a defensive center less than the last exit and will opt for a proactive 4-2-3-1.

The probable formations of Derby County-Cardiff

DERBY COUNTY (4-2-3-1): Carson; Wisdom, Davies, Keogh, Olsson; Huddlestone, Johnson; Lawrence, Vydra, Palmer; Nugent.
CARDIFF (4-3-3): Etheridge; Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Bennett; Ralls, Gunnarsson, Paterson; Mendez-Laing, Zohore, Hoilett.
