Derby County travel to take on Birmingham City at St. Andrew's on Friday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The last time the two teams met at Birmingham C. was more than a decade ago, in November 1995, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 4 winners in a League Division One match.
