Another tough game, with Derby hitting a bit of form, but Keith and the lads have had some bad luck lately, so we are due some good fortune, lets hope tonight is the start of a good run of points on the board...PLEASE!!!

Well put. I think it could be a tough night though especially with Derby's recent form.
