Derby County host table-topping Fulham at Pride Park on Friday evening in a game in which the result feels inevitable.
Wayne Rooney’s Derby side are 23rd in the table, on a measly 28 points after 41 games played. The Rams are struggling for form and points, and are practically confirmed to be playing in League One next season after a brave battle this season.
In stark contrast, The Cottagers are currently top of the Championship with 83 points, 10 ahead of 2nd-placed Bournemouth, and they will be playing their football in England’s top flight next season.
Fulham’s Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has already scored a quite astonishing 38 goals in 38 appearances this season, at a rate of a goal every 88 minutes. His exploits this season mean he has broken the all-time Championship scoring record, previously held by Ivan Toney with 31 goals. And with the striker having scored the opener in a game 19 times so far this season, three of which have come in his last six starts, we are backing him to do it again against the struggling Rams in this game.
