Derby 13/8 to qualify for the Championship playoff final
Market: Derby to qualify for the Championship playoff final
Odds: 13/8 @ William Hill
After having to endure Championship football for six seasons, Derby County now have the chance to get themselves back into the Premier League. Manager Steve McClaren has taken the plaudits for turning the club around after a limp start to the season under his predecessor.
The last time Derby County were in the top flight (2007/08), they ended the season with a paltry 11 points, conceding 89 goals in the 38 games, while scoring just 20 times. They earned promotion via the playoffs after finished in third place in the Championship with 84 points. This season, the Rams ended the campaign in third place with 85 points.
With William Hill backing Derby to reach the playoff final with odds of 13/8, they’ll be hoping their Premier League campaign doesn’t end as it did back then should they go up this season.
Brighton stand in their way of reaching the final this season, with the Seagulls scraping playoffs on the final day of the league campaign, but it’s worth noting County have beaten Brighton twice in their two league meetings.
