The first leg ended 2-1 to the Rams, it was an entertaining affair, which Southampton dominated for long periods, with plenty of chances. Saints hit the woodwork twice, something they did 24 times during the regular season and County, once.

Derby's physical strike force troubled the home defence, which was missing two key central defenders, both of whom are set to miss out again tonight. In addition the important Bale and Jones, who were substituted in the first game, are both major doubts.

No team in the Championship has created more chances than the visitors, with 672 attempts on goal this season. The league fixture here ended 2-2 and having scored in their last 17 away matches, Soton will not sit back and try to snatch a goal on the break, that is not their way. In fact, 6 times they have scored 3+ on the road and will certainly not have given up on this tie.

We can expect them to take the game to County and a few goals, "over" for me.

5.5 points over 2.25 goals Derby-Southampton 1.75 asian line. won + 4.125 pts

Good Luck.
