Peterborough United are set to host Derby County on Saturday on matchday two of the EFL Championship.

Peterborough made a return to the Championship since the 2012-13 season. They however did not make a fairytale return as they lost 3-0 to Luton Town on opening day.

The Posh then crashed out of the EFL Cup in the first round after losing 4-0 at home to Plymouth Argyle. Darren Ferguson will be looking to return his side to winning ways when they host Derby County on Saturday.

Derby County, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, also failed to get a win on opening day. The Rams could only get a point when they hosted Huddersfield Town last week as the game ended 1-1.

They, however, advanced to the next stage of the EFL Cup after defeating Salford City on penalties.

Peterborough United vs Derby County Prediction

Peterborough United have begun the new campaign rather poorly. Darren Ferguson's newly-promoted side have conceded seven goals in just two games and have failed to score any goals.

Derby County, with their transfer embargo, are seemingly set to have a difficult campaign ahead. However, they managed to hold on for a draw against Huddersfield last week before coming from behind to beat Salford City on Tuesday. The Rams could use that confidence to get their first league win of the campaign against Peterborough United.

Prediction: Peterborough United 0-2 Derby County
