2019-20 Sky Bet Championship: Week 45 – Sunday

Derby County welcome newly crowned Championship champions, Leeds United to Pride Park. 

Derby can climb to tenth with victory whilst Leeds look to make it seven matches unbeaten as they seek to build momentum to take into the Premier League next season.

Martyn Waghorn is available for Derby after completing a three match suspension, following his red card against Nottingham Forest earlier this month. 

Jack Marriott (groin) and Duane Holmes (hamstring) could also feature, whilst Andre Wisdom remains absent for personal reasons. 

Leeds’ only absentee is Kalvin Phillips with a knee injury. 


Stat Attack

  • Derby are unbeaten in three of their last five regular season meetings against Leeds (W1, D2, L2). 
  • Leeds have avoided defeat in four of their last five trips to Pride Park including post-season play-offs (W3, D1, L1). 
  • Leeds have won four of their last five away games (W4, L1). 



This is essentially a dead rubber but I still expect this to be fiercely fought as both clubs need to build momentum to take into next season in their respective challenges. 

Defending however has been Derby’s biggest issue all season and if they play like they have done in recent games, this could easily be a comfortable win for Leeds given their impressive attacking form. 

Prediction: Derby County 0-2 Leeds United

Result: Derby County 1-3 Leeds United
