Derby County prepare to entertain Leicester City at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, winning 61.36% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was just last season, in August 2004, with Leicester City inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Rams in a Championship match.
