CHAMPIONSHIP: DERBY WINLESS RUN CONTINUES

The Rams have not tasted victory since the 1-0 win at the home of newly promoted Championship club Hull City. The Tigers were promoted to the second tier at the end of last season after winning the League One title. Sam Baldock scored the only goal of the game with twelve (12) second half minutes on the clock. The victory over Hull City remains the only league sucesss for Wayne Rooney at Derby County this season after four rounds of games.
Since the win over Hull City, the Rams have drawn with Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest in addition to being eliminated from the League Cup by Sheffield United at the second round stage. The 2-1 loss at the home of the Blades was sandwiched between the goalless draw with visitors Boro and the score draw with hosts Nottingham Forest.
