Derby County are ready to welcome Southampton to Pride Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 3 of the 29 games.
The previous match played between the two at Pride Park was more than three years back, in November 2001, the Rams carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
