Championship basement boys Wycombe Wanderers ended a five-game winless run last time out (DI, L4) vs Huddersfield Town, scoring over 2.5 goals for the first time this season in the process.
Nonetheless, their goal average of 0.75 per game is the joint second-lowest in the league, with only opponents Derby County, and Birmingham, having a lower average.
Wycombe's last home league win came late in December. Although they have the worst defensive record in the league (1.75 goals against per game), their two league defeats at home in 2021 represent the only home league matches where they've conceded over 2.5 goals.
Thriving under Wayne Rooney, Derby County have won four (L 1) of their previous five league matches, and within that sequence, three of their four opening goals arrived before half-time.
Meanwhile, each one of those victories came by a single goal. In practice, that means six of their eight league wins have now come by way of this slender margin
