Man. City travel to take on Derby County at Pride Park on Wednesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Sky Blues will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The last time the two teams met at Derby County was back in January 2001, over five years ago, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides
Derby County's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Rams have scored 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.
Man. City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.
Derby County find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 7 points. Man. City's 40 points from 23 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 7th position.
