Ticket Information: Derby County

31 March 2018

There are just seven games to go and two points cover six teams chasing two Play-Off positions, with Monday a chance to put down a marker for both teams, knowing that with fixtures elsewhere, a win meaning they are likely to go into the final half dozen games in the top six.

It’s also Retro Day in PR1, a fan led event, with supporters wearing their old kits from bygone eras to show their colours for the team, with a couple of extra former players in attendance to add to the flavour – with both Chris Sedgwick and Chris Lucketti, who were part of the side that defeated the Rams in the 2005 Play-Off semi-finals set to be on the pitch at half-time.

For both teams, they come into the game on the back of defeats on Good Friday and will be wanting for a reaction to those reversals as they face off in front of a bumper bank holiday crowd.
