We Meet Again: Derby County

17 October 2016

Look back on four memorable meetings between The Bees and The Rams

Derby County 1 Brentford 2 - Anglo Italian Cup Semi-Final Second Leg, 03.02.93

Phil Holder's side trailed 4-3 from the First Leg and the tie looked to be all-but over just before half-time when Marco Gabbiadini slotted home. However, Gary Blissett curled in a sublime leveller from 25 yards before finishing off a wonderful team move to level the tie on aggregate with six minutes to go. The Bees threw everything at the hosts in the final few minutes but couldn't find a third and were eliminated on away goals one game shy of a Wembley appearance.

Wally Downes's side pulled off a cup upset as the Division One Rams were dumped out at Griffin Park. Days of rain had put the game in doubt but nearly 9,000 fans turned up to see Stephen Hunt's first-half free-kick decide the tie in The Bees favour. Despite the sending off of Stephen Evans, and the introduction of Georgi Kinkladze in the second-half, Downes's side held on to reach Round Four for the first time in seven years.

Stuart Dallas came off the bench to net the winner as The Bees downed high-flying Derby, managed by current boss Steve McClaren, after a superb second-half display at Griffin Park. Chris Martin gave The Rams a first-half lead which Andre Gray cancelled out with a fine first-time effort four minutes after the break. The game looked to be heading for a draw until Dallas fired home in stoppage time to claim the points.

Just as the home side had struck late in the first game between the two so it was the case when The Bees travelled to The iPro Stadium. Alex Pritchard had curled Mark Warburton's side into a fully merited first-half lead which should have been added to as The Bees took the game to a Play-Off rival. However, deep into injury time Jeff Hendrick let fly from 25 yards, the scuffed shot falling perfectly at the feet of Darren Bent to slot home from eight yards.
