Vital Statistics - Derby

Vital Statistics - Derby
PompeyFrippy's 'Vital Statistics' ahead of Pompey's trip to Derby tomorrow.

Derby County:
* After winning 6 of their first 8 games, The Rams have failed to win any of their last 5 league games.
* At Pride Park, Derby have only tasted defeat once this season in the Championship
* Despite their slip in form in the last month, Derby remain in the play-off spots, just 3 points behind West Ham in 2nd place.
* Last season, Derby lost more games than every other Championship team (excluding those who got relegated), tasting defeat in exactly half of their games (23).

Portsmouth:
* Pompey's recent revival has seen them take 6 points from 3 games since Steve Cotterill left.
* However, The Blues are yet to pick up maximum points on the road since their 1-0 win at Leicester last March.
* Portsmouth have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 away games.
* A win for the visitors will take them to within 3 points of Derby, who currently occupy a top 6 spot.

Head-to-Head:
* Pompey's 2-0 loss at Pride Park last season was the only time either side has failed to score in any of their last 8 meetings.
* In their last 23 meetings, Portsmouth have only scored exactly 1 goal on one occasion, that being in the most recent meeting at Fratton Park earlier this year.
* Derby have scored in every one of their last 13 games against the blues.
* In form Luke Varney is set to line up against his old club tomorrow, after scoring 3 goals in his last 3 games.

Special Treat:
* Love him or not, Robbie Savage was always a bit of a character, and this was shot prior to the game against us last season (where he scored a penalty). He has since hung up his boots.
