Derby County prepare to lock horns with Queens Park Rangers in the 19:45 Kick off at Ipro Stadium later tonight, with a live stream available on the game tonight.
Derby County would be looking to bag another three points when they take on QPR.
The hosts are currently 5th in the Championship with 27 points on the table after 14 games. However, after getting a good start to the season, Derby County has slipped off somewhere are entering this game on the back of a poor run of form.
Their home form against QPR has been terrible this season and they are coming in this game with just one victory in their last eight league games against their Tuesday opponents.
The last times these two teams met was back in May 2014 in the play-off finals, which QPR had won 1-0.
Bobby Zamora scored the only goal of that match. Derby Country would be expecting to get all three points against a side that has failed to perform on a consistent level this season.
Derby Country would be looking to win this game by once again relying on their passing. They have 80 percent passing accuracy in the Championship this season as compared to QPR’s 68 percent.
The visitors would be looking towards Charlie Austin for inspiration, who has scored four goals in just two league games against Derby County in the past.
QPR are however without Clint Hill (knee) and Sandro (ankle) but Charlie Austin should start the game after coming off the bench for QPR last week against Brentford.
Liverpool ‘tracking progress’ of young English defender
Liverpool are thought to have a genuine interest in young English defender Ben White, who is currently on loan at Leeds United from Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 22-year-old central defender has impressed in the Championship so far this season, helping Leeds concede an impressively low figure of ten goals in seventeen league matches as they currently sit in the second automatic promotion spot.
Phil Hay, who covers Leeds for The Athletic, recently dubbed him the ‘White Wall’ in Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s measly defence.
White even embarked on a sixty-yard solo run, topping it off with a slide rule pass inside the left channel, to directly assist Patrick Bamford’s opener against Luton Town at the weekend, showcasing his ability to play out from the back.
Illan Meslier, a young French goalkeeper also on loan at Leeds, has been impressed with his team-mate, saying:
“He’s unbelievable. He’s off to a good start to the season.
“Last year I think he was in League One. This is his first year in the Championship and he’s shown he’s at that level.
“Brighton has a very good player on its hands.”
It appears Brighton manager Graham Potter is well aware of the progress his player is making.
“The feedback about Ben has been really good, and we’re happy with how he’s done so far,” Potter told Brighton’s official website.
“It’s really good for him and Leeds United too, because it shows that the loan has worked well for everybody.
“He was a player that was really after first-team football and he’s got that opportunity there.
“Of course he’s still our player, but we’re happy that he’s having a good experience and getting better all the time, so we’re delighted.”
With White unlikely to be recalled from his loan this season, any potential suitors such as Liverpool will almost certainly have to wait until next summer to bring him to the club.
It is thought a fee of around £20m may tempt Brighton into selling him.
Having spent last season on loan at Peterborough United in League One and the season before on loan at Newport County in League Two, White is certainly a player on an upward trajectory.
Whether it’s at Brighton or elsewhere, it seems likely he will continue that in the Premier League next campaign.
Crystal Palace and Reading FC aiming for Brighton captain
Crystal Palace and Reading FC are both eyeing a move for Brighton and Hove Albion captain Gordon Greer to add to their defences for next season.
Sources claim that both clubs want to sure up their defence meaning Greer could be playing alongside current Palace captain Paddy McCarthy or next to Matt Mills of Reading when the summer transfer window closes. 30 year old Greer only joined Brighton last summer and was immediately made skipper by manager Gus Poyet.
The 30 year old was awesome at the back for Brighton with his performances obviously not going unnoticed and although there is interest in the defender, it is unlikely that Poyet will want to sell his captain on after just the one season at the Community Stadium.
