Derby v Albion match preview

24 August 2019

Albion will be looking for a third Sky Bet Championship away win on the bounce when they head to Derby on Saturday (ko 12.30pm).

Derby

Their last outing

County were beaten 2-1 at home to Bristol City in midweek.

Goals from former Ram Andreas Weimann and midfielder Josh Brownhill saw City race in to a two-goal first-half lead at Pride Park Stadium.

And, despite pulling one back with five minutes left through Jack Marriott’s individual effort, Derby couldn’t force a share of the points and were handed their first defeat of the season to leave them with five points from four games.

In their dugout

Phillip Cocu took the reigns over the summer after former boss Frank Lampard was appointed Chelsea Head Coach.

The former PSV and Fenerbahce boss, who has finished fourth at the World Cup with the Netherlands as both a player and assistant coach, has three Eredivisie titles to his name as a manager.

One to watch

Versatile attacking midfielder and winger Tom Lawrence is certainly a player who the Baggies will need to keep an eye on this weekend.

He’s started all four of Derby’s league games, scoring twice, and has been included in the Wales squad for next month’s international fixtures.

Lawrence netted at The Hawthorns during the 2018/19 campaign and grabbed a total of eight goals en route to their Play-Off final defeat.

Our last meeting

The Rams got the better of Albion in both fixtures last season, with the 3-1 win on the final day securing their place in the top six.

Stats

Albion

• Kenneth Zohore’s late penalty against Reading on Wednesday maintained his team’s unbeaten league start (P4, W2, D2).

• Albion have come from behind in three of their four league matches to pick up points.

• The Baggies won their last August visit to Derby, a 1-0 triumph at the beginning of the 2003/04 Division One campaign.

Derby

• County have won the last three meetings between the sides in all competitions.

• Their last victory over Albion in August was back in 1969.

• Cocu's men haven't yet won at home this season, drawing 0-0 with Swansea in their first Pride Park outing before the loss to Bristol City.

Zohore could be a key player for Albion on Saturday after netting his first goal for the Club since signing in the summer.

The striker said he felt confident in his post-match interview, and promised Baggies fans that there is "plenty more to come".

Match Reports

Derby 1 Albion 1

24 August 2019

The points were shared on an afternoon of penalties at Pride Park as Albion drew 1-1 with Derby County.

Martyn Waghorn put the home side ahead from 12-yards after he was fouled by Kieran Gibbs in the opening six minutes, but he couldn’t repeat the feat just before half-time when Sam Johnstone superbly saved his controversial second spot-kick.

Instead it was Kenneth Zohore, in a repeat of Wednesday night, who scored the third penalty of the day late on to ensure the Baggies left Derbyshire with a point.

It’s the fourth time in five games Albion have come from behind to pick something up, with the result maintaining their unbeaten league start to the 2019/20 campaign.

Slaven Bilić made three changes to the team that drew with Reading in midweek as Nathan Ferguson, Kyle Edwards and Zohore - who netted against the Royals - all came into the line-up.

But his side were behind very early on, Waghorn winning a penalty and then stepping up to give Derby the lead.

The Baggies tried to put their disappointment behind them quickly and created opportunities to get themselves back into the game. Edwards saw an effort go into the side-netting, as did Darnell Furlong, and Ferguson also went close when his low shot after a gut-busting run was saved well by Kelle Roos.

The goal wouldn't come, though, and just before half-time the home side very nearly doubled their advantage. County were given a contentious spot-kick, Filip Krovinović judged to have handled by referee Gavin Ward, but Johnstone came to the rescue to keep out Waghorn.

After the break both teams had chances but neither could find the back of the net. Krovinović twice fired over for Albion as they came out fighting, and down the other end Johnstone did brilliantly to deny Jack Marriott and Waghorn.

Bilić’s men kept pushing as time started to run out and they were finally rewarded when substitute Grady Diangana was brought down inside the box, resulting in another late penalty.

And just as he did on Wednesday night, Zohore made no mistake - sending Roos the wrong way to earn the Baggies a share of the spoils.

ALBION: Johnstone, Ferguson, Ajayi, Bartley, Gibbs (Furlong 21); Sawyers, Livermore; Phillips (Pereira 71), Krovinović, Edwards (Diangana 45), Zohore.

Substitutes: Bond, O’Shea, Brunt, Austin.
