Derby County prepare to entertain Burnley at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 24 and lost only 9 of the 40 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was just last season, in September 2002, with Burnley inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Rams in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Derby County's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rams have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Burnley's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Clarets have hit 9 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Derby County are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide League Division One with a return of just 15 points from their 18 games thus far. Burnley find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 20 points from their 17 matches.
