Match Previews

Albion v Derby County match preview

23 October 2018

ALBION are looking to bounce back from the weekend when Derby County come to The Hawthorns on Wednesday evening (ko 8pm).

The opposition 

Derby currently sit fifth in the Sky Bet Championship table on 21 points having won six, drawn three and lost four of their opening 13 games.

Frank Lampard’s Rams put a three-game winless run behind them last time out, beating Sheffield United 2-1 at Pride Park.

As well as bringing in the former Chelsea and England player as their new manager, Derby had a busy summer - signing the likes of Jack Marriott, Florian Jozefzoon and Martyn Waghorn permanently as well as Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Harry Wilson on loan.

Last time out

The most recent meeting between the sides was in the FA Cup during the 2016/17 season when Derby won 2-1 at The Hawthorns.

However, Albion came out on top in the last league fixture back in February 2010 as a Chris Brunt brace and Simon Cox’s goal helped the Baggies on to a 3-1 victory.

Brunt celebrates his goal against the Rams



  • Despite Albion’s first Championship defeat since August on Saturday, Darren Moore’s side are still sat 3rd in the table and just one point off the summit.
  • The Baggies are unbeaten at home to Derby in their last five league matches.
  • Craig Dawson played the 300th game of his club career on the weekend. The defender has made 190 of those appearances in an Albion shirt.

Derby County

  • Derby have won twice on the road in the Championship so far this season (P6, W2, D1, L3).
  • Marriott has scored three goals and claimed one assist in his last five games for the Rams.
  • Saturday will see Darren Moore manage against a former playing side in Derby, who he won promotion to the Premier League with, for the first time.

From the archive 

Here are the highlights from the most recent league meeting between the sides…

Head to head 

The overall head-to-head record sees Derby come out on top.

Of the 116 matches that have been played, the Baggies have won 37 times, Derby have been victorious on 50 occasions and there have been 29 draws.

Man in the middle 

The referee for Saturday’s game is Robert Jones, and he’ll be assisted by Michael George and Nigel Lugg - with John Brooks as the fourth official.

It will be the first Albion league game that Jones has taken charge of this campaign, though he was in the middle for the Carabao Cup win over Luton Town in August.

Match Reports

Albion 1 Derby 4

24 October 2018

ALBION suffered consecutive defeats for the first time this season as a five-game winning streak at The Hawthorns came to an end against Derby County.

Jack Marriott, Tom Lawrence, Harry Wilson and Scott Malone were all on target as the visitors ran out convincing winners on Wednesday evening despite Jay Rodriguez's late consolation.

It was a disappointing night for the Baggies which saw Kieran Gibbs and Dwight Gayle forced off at half-time owing to injury.

Darren Moore made two changes from defeat at Wigan Athletic - both enforced. Tosin Adarabioyo replaced Ahmed Hegazi who reported a "tight hamstring" prior to kick-off. Jake Livermore's suspension meant Sam Field earned his first league start of the season.

And it was the hosts who had the first sight of goal, Rodriguez firing a low shot left of Scott Carson's near post.

But it was to be the Albion man's error that gifted the visitors a 10th-minute lead, Rodriguez's loose backpass converted by Marriott.

It went from bad to worse for the Baggies as Wales international Lawrence drilled in off the woodwork to double the Rams' lead just five minutes later.

Moore's men would have found themselves three goals down before half-time but for Sam Johnstone. The Baggies number one saved well from Malone, Tom Huddlestone and Jayden Bogle.

Keen to atone for his earlier mistake, Rodriguez struck a fierce half-volley straight at Carson, before the Derby 'keeper was quick off his line to intercept a pass intended for Gayle - Albion's best opening of the first 45 minutes.

Albion were forced into a double substitution at the interval after Gibbs and Gayle picked up slight knocks - Tyrone Mears and Hal Robson-Kanu their replacements.

But Frank Lampard's side put the game beyond doubt just six minutes after the restart, Wilson punching the ball past an unsighted Johnstone.

Harvey Barnes andField tried their luck from distance in an effort to claw their side back into the tie, with Scott Malone denying Robson-Kanu a certain goal with 20 minutes to play.

It was to be one of those nights for the Baggies as Malone found himself one-on-one with Johnstone at the other end just moments later. He made it four with a calm finish.

Rodriguez slotted a late response but the Baggies must regroup ahead of another Hawthorns clash with Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

ALBION: Johnstone; Dawson, Adarabioyo, Bartley; Phillips (Morrison 62), Field, Brunt, Gibbs (Mears HT); Barnes; Rodriguez, Gayle (Robson-Kanu HT).

Subs: Myhill, Sako, Edwards, Hoolahan.
