History of the Derby County v Queens Park Rangers fixture

Derby County play host to Queens Park Rangers at Pride Park on Wednesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 4 of the 17 games.

The last time the two teams met at Derby County was more than a decade ago, in December 1990, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a First Division match.
