Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday: Derby to Win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 – 9/4

Derby take on Sheffield Wednesday at Pride Park, with both sides knowing that anything less than a win could send either of the two relegated to League One, with Rotherham separating the two in the table, two points behind Derby with a better goal difference, whilst Wednesday are three points behind Wayne Rooney’s men and also have a better goal difference.

In this crucial Championship clash, home advantage could play as a factor despite there being no crowds. Derby’s last win came on 2nd April in a 2-0 win over Luton Town, thanks to goals from Lee Gregory and Graeme Shinnie, whilst Wednesday have won just one more since the Rams last win, having beaten Blackburn Rovers 1-0 and Cardiff City 5-0 both at home.

Six of Derby’s 11 wins have all came at Pride Park, whilst the Owls have won just four matches away from home this season. 10 of Derby’s 11 wins have all came within the score range of 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

Bristol City vs Brentford: Ivan Toney to Score First – 23/10

Bristol City take on Brentford at Ashton Gate in what is a battle of 19th against third.

Thomas Frank’s side will want to go into the playoffs with as much momentum as possible, having managed to reach the final of last year’s format, only to be beaten 2-0 by Fulham in the final at Wembley.

Ivan Toney is the player in focus here, as the former Peterborough man has had an impressive debut season for the Bees, scoring 30 goals and assisting 10 in 44 matches. The Northampton born striker is currently the leader in the race for the Championship golden boot, as he is four goals ahead of Norwich’s Teemu Pukki and will want to wrap his league season up in style.

Brentford are coming up against a defence that has leaked 65 goals this season in 45 matches, of which Toney will be looking to take full advantage of, as he did when he scored in the Bees 3-2 win against the Robins at the Brentford Community Stadium in February.
