History of the Derby County v Wimbledon fixture

Derby County prepare to entertain Wimbledon at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Rams have the slight edge, having won 3 of the 9 games compared to Wimbledon's 2 wins.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was just last season, in November 2002, as the Rams squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Derby County have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The Rams's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Wimbledon's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Dons have hit 4 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Derby County are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 19 points from 20 matches. Wimbledon find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 20 games have yielded only 14 points.
