One to Watch: Mason Mount

Mason Mount has been excellent so far for Derby, following his loan move from Chelsea in the summer. The 19-year-old midfielder looks as though he could have a bright future in the game, and in Frank Lampard, he has the perfect mentor to help him learn his craft. 

Mount already has three goals for the Rams this term, with two of those to break the deadlock. He also has an assist to his name, and could be an attractive option for the first goal of the game on Saturday at 19/2 with 888sport. 

19/2 Mount to score first

George Evans has returned to the training pitches after a knee injury, but this game could come too soon for him. Frank Lampard will also be without Marcus Olsson, who is out until after the new year with a knee injury of his own. 

Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

QPR welcome Derby County to Loftus Road for this weekend’s Championship fixture

Derby County come into this Championship preview after failing to win either of their games since beating Manchester United on penalties in the League Cup. Queens Park Rangers, meanwhile, recorded a big win in midweek which should give them plenty of confidence. 

QPR are 9/5 in your Championship predictions, as they look to make it two wins in two. German defender Toni Leistner struck midway through the second half of their match at Reading on Tuesday, with his goal proving to be the only one of the game. The win takes the Hoops to within four points of the play-off places, as things start to improve under Steve McLaren. 

Derby are 17/10 for the victory as part of your football betting tips for the weekend. The Rams needed a late goal from Craig Bryson to rescue a point at home to Norwich on Wednesday, after they lost at Bolton last weekend. Consistency is going to be the key for Lampard’s side, who have won five and lost four of their opening 11 matches. 

The draw is 23/10, and could be on the cards with Derby having 24 hours less to prepare for this game. The most recent meeting between the sides was a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road, although County won all three of the games before that. A point wouldn’t be the worst result for the hosts, although the Rs have only drawn once so far this season. 

Eberechi Eze is 19/2 to open the scoring on Saturday, which could be a great price considering his goalscoring exploits so far this season. The 20-year-old Nigerian is QPR’s top scorer with three Championship goals. Tom Lawrence also has three goals for Derby, and he’s available at 10/1 as a football prediction for the first goal. 

Predicted Score: Queens Park Rangers 0 - 1 Derby County
