Teams: Derby County, Burton Albion
The preview thing of the official website, always find these an interesting read myself....
Also good to see we have the upper hand in this game, as we don;t against those tree huggers.
It's Derby 43 Leicester 25 over the years as the Rams hold the upper-hand in terms of victories over their near neighbours.
April 1894 saw the first meeting between the two sides, a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup, and it was Derby who took the honours with a 3-0 win in the replay.
The Rams also won the first league meeting in November 1907, an old Division Two encounter, by three goals to one.
The two clubs were rarely apart in the 1920s and 30s, but then met just twice in the space of the next 32 years - and their paths crossed again in Derby's first championship season.
Derby did the double over the Foxes in 1971/72, and then took three points off them in 74/75.
The 1990s saw some of the best battles between the sides, starting at Wembley in May 1994 for the First Division play-off final.
Tommy Johnson set the Rams on their way, Steve Walsh equalised for Leicester shortly before half-time, then with just minutes remaining Walsh rammed home a winner.
Leicester were relegated from the Premiership the following season, and in 1995/96 they were promoted to the top-flight via the play-offs, behind second-placed
Derby - having been the only team to win a league game at the Baseball Ground that season.
Derby won eight of the 12 meetings in the Premiership, with Leicester claiming the other four, and having gone up together the two teams came back down together at the end of the 2001/02 season.

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.
