History of the Derby County v Sheffield Wednesday fixture

Derby County are ready to welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Pride Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 29 and lost only 11 of the 55 games.

The previous match played between the two at Pride Park was more than three years back, in February 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Division One match.
