Here’s Adam Drury‘s pick to get you started…

Fulham to score over 1.5 goals –

Fulham have scored at least twice in four of their last six away games.

Despite an improvement in form, Derby – who have history in crumbling under pressure – are without a clean sheet in six.

They lost 3-0 in their semi-final first leg at home to Hull two years ago, and shipped four to Sunderland last month.

Aleksandar Mitrovic to score –

Mitrovic has only failed to score in four of his last 15 matches, a run that includes a goal in the corresponding league fixture between these two in March.

He has to be worth a punt at a price comfortably the right side of evens.

Bradley Johnson to be carded

Johnson has picked up nine yellow cards this season, and is a prime candidate for another on Friday.

He and midfield partner Tom Huddlestone – both the wrong side of 30 – will have to work hard to stop the best passing team in the division, and may have to accept a booking in the process.

Under 8.5 corners

Just one of Fulham’s last five matches have passed this mark.

Derby – whose game with Barnsley on Sunday produced just eight corners – will have to accept being out of possession for much of this match.
