After Derby claimed a 3-0 victory over Port Vale last weekend, they repeated the scoreline in Saturday’s away encounter with Bristol Rovers to move into the automatic promotion spots.

The Rams failed to break the deadlock in the first half, but Dwight Gayle, Tom Barkhuizen and Martyn Waghorn all got on the scoresheet in a dominant second period to secure all three points.

The result also gave a resolute Derby side their 16th clean sheet of the League One season, with only Stevenage and Portsmouth having recorded more shutouts this term.

With nine matches remaining, the Rams are five points adrift of leaders Portsmouth and two points clear of third-placed Bolton Wanderers.

Paul Warne’s side will be confident about adding to their points tally on Tuesday, having lost just one of their last six home league matches.

Meanwhile, Reading have struggled to find consistency in recent weeks, with their last six matches producing two wins, one draw and three defeats in their last six games.

After beginning March with a victory over Carlisle United, Reading were unable to back that result up in Saturday’s home encounter with Wycombe Wanderers, suffering a 2-1 defeat.

The Royals, who have been deducted six points this season, still have work to do in their battle to remain in the division, with five points separating them from the bottom four.

Ruben Selles’ side will be hoping to extend that gap on Tuesday as they bid to claim a second straight away league victory for the first time this season.

Derby County vs. Reading Head to head
