Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester haven’t had a happy start to 2017 – and the struggling side might not be able to give their support something to cheer at the King Power on Wednesday.
Steve McClaren’s Derby County held the Foxes to a 2-2 draw when these sides met last month, Wes Morgan’s 86th minute equaliser setting up this FA Cup replay. But while they enjoy home advantage, there’s not been much to suggest that the East Midlands side can rediscover the form of last season here.
There’s hardly a gulf in class between these two sides, going on recent results. Derby narrowly lost to fellow promotion hopefuls Newcastle last week, but are in reasonable form and can benefit from Leicester’s current woes. Back Derby to win at 29/10.
Tom Ince has scored in three of Derby’s last six outings, and is the Rams leading scorer this season. Ince is 16/5 to score at any time.
Darren Bent featured at both ends in the last meeting between these two sides, scoring an own goal as he mishit an attempted clearance from a corner to send the ball into his own net.
But Bent quickly atoned for that error, scoring the equaliser minutes later. In fact, Bent’s record in the FA Cup is outstanding, with 10 goals in his last 11 FA Cup games. He’s also scored in all five FA Cup appearances he’s made for Derby – can he keep that record going tonight?
Bent is 29/10 to score at any time tonight.
