Games for Mid-Week 26/11

Tuesday evening at the Cottage, this time we take on Derby County.

Fulham v Derby County

After a shaky start Friday evening the lads eventually came good with AK47 getting a couple of well taken goals.
Scotty Parker will have to think hard and long about his inclusion in the starting eleven now that Mitro has served his one match ban.
If the two of them could form a partnership they would be truly frightening to any team.

Derby also had a home win, their fifth successive home win, against Preston North End on Saturday however they’ve not had too much success on the road.

the Play-off’s

so after a record breaking unbeaten run we slip-up at Birmingham, unfortunate but what a run that was!

We now face Derby County to see who progresses to the play-off final.

Should you need a reminder of our two league games against them they were…
(home) 1-1  November
(away) 1-2  March

…so we’ve a reasonable record against them for this season.

The first game will be away at Pride Park on Friday evening 11/05, kick-off 19:45

Derby County v Fulham

The return leg will be the following Monday evening 14/05, kick-off 19:45, at Craven Cottage

Fulham v Derby County

I’m sure that Joka’ and the lads are disappointed that we didn’t get automatic promotion but with the run of form we’re in we’ve no-one to fear.

Derby’s last five results…
14/04/18 – Burton 3-1 Derby
21/04/18 – Derby 1-2 Middlesborough
24/04/18 – Derby 3-1 Cardiff
28/04/18 – Aston Villa 1-1 Derby
06/05/18 – Derby 4-1 Barnsley

whatever the result(s) we’ve had a fantastic season and this calendar year the lads have done us proud week in-week out.

I’d love a trip to Wembley
