Manager's Comment
“Rovers beat us 2-0 in the league and also in the League Cup and nobody likes losing matches especially Derby matches.

They're a good side they pose a real threat up front with the likes of Twigg, Baker, Amond and Purcell and we'll have to show the same levels of intensity as we did against Bohs to get a result on Saturday night” - Jeff Kenna.
