History of the Derby County v Wolverhampton Wanderers fixture

Derby County prepare to entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at Pride Park on Tuesday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rams are clearly on top, winning 55.07% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was just last season, in November 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Championship match.
