Derby County

‘They have been incredible’: EFL pundit shares impressive Derby County statistic ahead of Cambridge



Derby County’s imminent return to the Championship is fueled by one major factor: their ability to remain focused and determined despite the challenges they’ve faced. While the recent slip-up by Bolton Wanderers has certainly boosted their chances, Derby understands that the job is not done yet.

Under the guidance of Paul Warne, the team is well aware of the past instances where they fell short despite being in promising positions. Hence, they are fully committed to avoiding any last-minute drama and securing their promotion in a convincing manner.

With just four points needed from their final two matches against Cambridge United and Carlisle United, Derby County is primed to make their return to the second tier of English football. Their resilience and determination have been instrumental in their success this season, and they are determined to finish the job they’ve started.

Derby County’s away record has been a significant factor in their push for promotion from League One this season. As they prepare to face Cambridge United this weekend, their impressive stats on the road give them confidence.

With 42 points and 12 wins from 22 away matches, Derby ranks third in the division for away performance. Their style of play, characterized by freedom and quick counterattacks, has been particularly effective against teams lower in the table.

Players like Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Corey Blackett-Taylor excel in exploiting space and pace, making them dangerous weapons on the break. Against teams ranked 10th or below, Derby’s defensive solidity shines through. In 14 away games against such opponents, they’ve conceded just five goals, kept nine clean sheets, and claimed victory nine times.

Journalist Sam Parkin sees these statistics as reason for Derby to be confident heading into the Cambridge clash. Their ability to grind out results in challenging away fixtures has been a hallmark of their season. With the defensive partnership of Eiran Cashin and Curtis Nelson providing stability, Derby boasts one of the league’s best defensive records, having conceded the joint fewest goals (37).

If they can replicate their recent performances, including draws against tough opponents like Portsmouth and convincing wins like against Leyton Orient, Derby should be well on their way to sealing automatic promotion. Their blend of defensive solidity and attacking freedom has put them in a prime position to achieve their season’s objective.
