The vast majority of punters are backing high-flying Derby County to beat Ipswich Town at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).

The Blues beat the Rams 1-0 at Pride Park back in November – stretching their remarkable unbeaten run there to 10 games – after Callum Connolly’s early goal.

But Gary Rowett’s Rams have been on fire since, keeping five straight clean sheets and dropping just two points, to move into fourth in the table.
