Derby County play host to Crewe Alexandra at Pride Park on Wednesday evening, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Rams.
The last time the two teams met at Derby County was well over fifteen years ago, back in November 1985, with Derby County annihilating their visitors 5-1 in a F.A. Cup match.
