Derby County prepare to entertain Queens Park Rangers at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 4 of the 18 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was less than a year ago, in March 2005, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.
