Head to Head
The last time the two teams played was in March 2008, a Premier League game that resulted in a 0-0 draw.
David Moyes Sunderland replacement Simon Grayson will be looking to rebuild a pretty broken team after an awful 16/17 Premier League season which resulted in them ending up here in the Sky Bet Championship, and with an unhappy team, unhappy fanbase and most probably unhappy boardroom the new manager has got his work cut out to get the team back on track.
Derby on the otherhand will be looking to use their dire situation to their advantage, their solid 9th mid table finish last season will indeed work in their favour and with some successful friendly wins under their belt over the quiet period Gary Rowett and his men can go into this match with a skip in their step.
The downside for the Rams is that they are playing the away game but with Sunderlands woes you could see Derby pull off a win of small margins so that's why we're going with a 1-0 Derby steal and @ 15/2 that's not bad value at all!
