In numbers: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Derby County

20 March 2015

We've crunched the all-important numbers ahead of Friday night’s Sky Bet Championship clash between Wolves and Derby County, which is live on Sky Sports.

1 - Wolves have lost just one of their last seven Sky Bet Championship outings, and that came in a 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth at the beginning of March.

2 - Wolves can reduce the gap to Derby to two points with victory over the Rams this evening.

3 - The two sides come into tonight’s fixture after contrasting midweek results, as Wolves won 3-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday and Derby lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough.

4 - Derby have won four of their seven matches which have been shown live on Sky Sports this season.

5 - The Rams are without a victory in five league games (L3, D2). Their last triumph came against Charlton Athletic in February, when they won prevailed 2-0.

5 - Steve McClaren’s Derby put five past Wolves in the reverse meeting back in November, which was also live on Sky Sports. That day, braces from Jeff Hendrick and Johnny Russell followed a Ryan Shotton opener.

6 - Wolves can move into the Sky Bet Championship's top six with a four-goal winning margin at Molineux. Their current goal difference is three less than Brentford’s, and the Bees sit in the lowest Play-Off place.

8 - Rams midfielder Omar Mascarell will miss the remaining eight games of the season with a tendon injury in his foot, the club confirmed on Friday.

12 - Wolves have had 12 different goalscorers in the Championship this term, and Backary Sako tops that list with, you guessed it, 12 goals to his name.

19.45 - Tonight’s clash will get under way at 7.45pm, in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

28,920 - Derby’s iPro Stadium holds the highest average attendance in the Championship this season with 28,920, but they won’t benefit from home advantage this evening.

71,000 - We will be providing updates from the clash at Molineux on the official Sky Bet Championship Twitter feed - @SkyBetChamp – which is followed by over 71,000 people.

400,000 - Wolves sit in the top six in the divisional attendances table, and tonight will see them exceed the 400,000 mark for the campaign.
