Derby County play host to Plymouth Argyle at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 11 and lost only 4 of the 18 games.

The last time the two teams met at Derby County was more than a decade ago, in March 1992, with Derby County running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Second Division match.
