Derby County prepare to entertain Sheffield Wednesday at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 29 and lost only 12 of the 56 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was less than a year ago, in April 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Championship match.
