Derby County v Queens Park Rangers – Sky Bet Championship
The Hoops are stuck in a rut since February, winning just two of their last 13 games and none in their last six.
Mark Warburton’s side lost five in a row before a 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town on Friday arrested the slide.
They remain in 12th position of the league standings with 60 points from 42 games with survival guaranteed.
Derby, however, are still fighting for their lives, sitting in 22nd place with 31 points, nine off the safe zone.
