Unbelievable as it may sound, Stoke City could yet land a top six finish in the Championship this season, with the Potters enjoying an excellent run of form that has lifted them out of the relegation zone and now has them looking further upwards.

Michael O’Neill has made a positive impact at the bet365 Stadium and his team now travel to Pride Park looking to build on recent victories over West Brom and Swansea, with the defence looking extremely stout under the Northern Ireland manager.

At the time of writing, former England goalkeeper Jack Butland has kept three consecutive clean sheets for Stoke after enduring a horrible start to the campaign, while the team now has a settled look and that includes Bruno Martins Indi and Danny Batth running a tight ship in front of the keeper.

The team are certainly realising their potential under the new manager and some bookies have them as favourites to win at Pride Park, although Derby County will not be easily beaten on Friday night.

The Rams are six points better off than Stoke at the time of writing and the majority of their victories have come in front of their own supporters, with eight wins and five draws occurring in fifteen home matches.

Philip Cocu’s side are also capable of keeping things tight and there’s the possibility that the two teams will largely cancel each other out, with Derby unbeaten in their past seven matches.

A recent 1-0 victory over Hull illustrates that they can be involved in low-scoring matches and there’s a lack of firepower and creativity due to the fact that Mason Mount and Harry Wilson are no longer at the club.
