Derby County play host to Barnsley at Pride Park on Wednesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 4 of the 25 games.
The last time the two teams met at Derby County was back in August 1997, over five years ago, the Rams carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
