The first game between the teams, in West London, ended in a 0-0 draw. The match was the second of two played at our new stadium in front of a small band of fans but will not live long in the memory. Brentford had the better of the contest and created almost all the chances but were unable to find a way through. They hit the woodwork twice in the second half, but the crucial goal would not come and the spoils were shared.

Derby are one of the division's form teams, having won six of their last eight games in all competitions. Defeats to Watford and Rotherham United have come in the midst of a run that has included victories over Play-Off chasing AFC Bournemouth and Middlesbrough. They sit 18th in the Championship table with 37 points from 31 games. The Rams are eight points clear of the relegation zone and could close a 12-point gap to sixth-placed Cardiff City if they continue their winning form.
