**Official Match Day Thread - City v Derby**

on Sat Apr 02, 2016 6:30 pm
Okay, what have we all been up to for the past week? With excitement building elsewhere about the game today and perhaps the biggest ever Championship crowd at CCS, this place has been deserted. Not a single post in six days!

The club has done an admirable job to get bums on seats, so let's hope that this isn't a complete anti-climax and a stroll in the park for Derby. They certainly gave us a good stuffing up there earlier in the year and now they have the "Harry Factor".

It will be really interesting to see how the team responds to all this sudden positivity, but I have a feeling that they just might do that and fancy a City win 2 - 0.

That said, given our defensively dodgy full backs, Tom Ince & Johnny Russell worry me.

If we are serious about a promotion push, this is a must win game

Sadly, I think we'll scrape a draw.

A very good win indeed in the end. Shame that Wednesday grabbed the late winner at Huddersfield, but Derby are sinking and could be the ones to catch.

Would be a good idea to get out of the Championship this year, as it looks like Sunderland, Newcastle & Villa are on the way down. Can't see any of them hanging around here for long.

Good result! My heart sank when we conceded after half time but actually seems like we have some resilience now and a far cry from the 2-0 dirge I saw against Derby last season.

Yep, shame Wednesday snatched a win but I would have taken those results if offered to me before 3pm.

Burnley away will be tough in the week, and one I think we'd probably all take a draw from at this stage.
