Our principal partner 888sport continue to supply the latest odds and tips ahead of each game, here is their betting preview ahead of the clash with the Rams.

PNE 11/5
Derby County 13/10
Draw 23/10


North End are looking for their first home league win of the season and they face another challenging encounter on Tuesday evening against 7/2 promotion hopefuls Derby County.

But the Rams suffered a shock 2-0 loss at newly-promoted Barnsley on Saturday, with boss Nigel Pearson lamenting the ‘psychological issues’ in his squad, with several players lacking form and fitness.

That should give hope to PNE, who improved markedly in the second half against Fulham, with new permanent signing Callum Robinson heading home to halve the deficit in the 71st minute.

Simon Grayson will demand a similar performance to the one that ground out a gritty goalless draw the last time these two met back in February, and you can get a price of 7/1 on a repeat of that scoreline this time.

With both teams still looking for their first league win, a tight encounter does seem the scenario to side with, with a goal or less in the match a shade over 4/1 with two or under 17/24, while if you’re confident North End can avoid defeat, grab 8/13 on the double chance home win or draw.

A score draw is 15/4.

Derby dangermen include last season’s 15-goal man Chris Martin, a 39/10 shot to open the scoring, and former England striker Darren Bent, who can be backed at 24/5 in the same market.

Callum Robinson is 3/1 to make it two in two with a goal at any time and 7/1 to score first, while Saturday’s assist-maker Jermaine Beckford is 23/4 to bag the opener.

Prediction: 1-1 23/4
Bet of the night: Draw 23/10
Outside punt: Derby County half-time, draw full-time 14/1
