Derby County vs. Bristol City: Championship – Match Preview

Two of the favourites for promotion from the Championship meet on Tuesday evening as Derby County host Bristol City.

Derby have claimed five points from their first three games under new manager Phillip Cocu.

On the weekend they scored late on to earn a point away at Stoke City, thanks to Martyn Waghorn penalty.

Bristol City have claimed four points from their last two games, recovering from an opening day defeat at home to Leeds United.

Benik Afobe opened his account for Bristol City in the weekend victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Waghorn was again among the scorers in the meeting last term, as Bristol City held Derby at Pride Park.
