Derby County face a trip to Burnley at Turf Moor 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 most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2004, the Clarets carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Division One match.
