Wycombe Wanderers vs Derby County Prediction

Wycombe Wanderers are at the bottom of the EFL Championship table, but they have given a good account of themselves so far. Gareth Ainsworth's side are not an easy team to beat, and they have enjoyed some good matches this season.

Derby County, on the other hand, are 19th in the league table, and have won four of their last five league games. They have stabilised under the management of Wayne Rooney.

The Rams should be able to triumph here, although it could prove to be a difficult game.

Prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Derby County
