Home Comforts

Rowett oversaw a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest in his first match as Derby manager and he will be relishing the chance to turn around the fortunes of a club he represented with such distinction as a player.

The former Birmingham boss is Derby's fifth manager in thirteen months but he is still eyeing an unlikely crack at the play-offs, with the Rams currently nine points off the top-seven with eight matches left to play.

A win on Friday night could make things very interesting and it bodes well that Derby have only lost one of their past fifteen home games in all competitions (won eight, drawn six), with Betway going evens about a home win.
Match Odds:

Improving Rangers

Queens Park Rangers start the day just three points behind tenth-placed Derby in the league table following a vastly improved run of form under manager Ian Holloway, who has seen his team win five of their past seven Championship fixtures following a 5-1 victory against Rotherham.

It is worth noting that four of those wins came at Loftus Road and the other was away at a woeful Birmingham side, with Rangers winning just three of their past ten away league games (drawn two, lost five).

Holloway's men clearly struggle on the road but they rarely get blown away as eleven of their fifteen defeats this season have come by a single goal.

Derby are 27/10 to win by a one goal margin (Betfair) and nine of their thirteen league wins this season have come in that manner.

A Narrow Derby Win

Derby have won three of their past five meetings with QPR by a 1-0 scoreline and a repeat of the 1-0 home win is a tempting 6/1 (Paddy Power).

Indeed, Rowett prides himself on making his teams well organised and he has inherited a Derby side that has conceded just 38 goals - only promotion chasing Newcastle, Brighton and Leeds have let in less - while it is interesting to note that the Rams have kept a clean sheet in 58% of league matches at Pride Park.
