Derby take on Watford tonight in what looks like being the game of the day as both these sides have claims on taking the Championship title this season, with the match live streaming.
For Derby a win is an absolute must as they must get back into winning ways, with Steve McClaren’s side now six games without a win, which includes four losses for the Rams. The side now finds itself in fifth place in the Championship, still in the playoff places but fans must be worried as they look over their shoulders at the chasing pack.
Much of the decline of Derby in recent weeks has been the injury to 19 goal man Chris Martin, but the good news is that he will return today from his troublesome hamstring injury and that could spell danger for Hornets fans.
It’s been good to see them out there training, They have had a good full week’s work and are available for the Watford game. That is a tough decision to make.
Chrissy has been out eight weeks, 11 games, so we have got to be careful with him.Decisions will be finalised on Friday.
Midfielder John Eustace (knee) is not yet ready for a return to action.
Watford are still riding high in second place but come into this game on the back of a disappointing loss at home to Ipswich, which was only their first loss in their last seven, but they are still strongly placed to mount a serious charge on automatic promotion.
Don’t forget that there is live streaming available on the game from Bet365, country restrictions apply.
