Teams: Derby County, Burton Albion
Supporters fear they will be left counting the cost of Derby County's decision to launch another new home strip for next season.
The Rams changed their kit suppliers to Joma last summer and brought out new home and away kits in July.
A limited edition black shirt was also produced earlier this season, though the club say this was in direct response to feedback from fans who had seen the team wear black in a game at Brighton.
It means two new strips and a third shirt have been launched in the past nine months despite Football League guidelines encouraging clubs to only produce one new kit a season.
Another new kit will mean the current black and white home strip will be out of date after a year when fans expect their replica strips to last at least two years.
Derby have defended the move, saying that having changed suppliers last summer, they need to return to the Football League's recommended cycle of one new kit per season.
Rams operations director Paul Clouting said: “The Football League has guidelines but this can sometimes be difficult due to changes of kit sponsor or club sponsor.
“We are now making a positive attempt to get into that cycle but also being mindful of the pressure on people's wallets.”
Season ticket holder Mick Chell, from Uttoxeter, said: “The clubs know that the fans will buy a replica shirt - it's just typical of clubs today.
“I have three children between the ages of 14 and 18 who will all want new shirts but they'll have to buy their own as I can't afford to kit out the whole family.
“It's an expensive business but I still think I'll be buying one.”
Tony Hodgson, of Mickleover, bought a home shirt for his brother only three weeks ago.
“It's annoying because these shirts aren't cheap and you expect them to last two seasons,” he said.
“It was my brother's 30th birthday so I bought him a Derby top with the number 30 on the back. Now it will be out of date in the summer and that's irritating.
“You expect to get more wear out of them and I wish I'd known earlier that this was going to happen.”
Robert Walker, of Chaddesden, said: “I already give money to the club by sponsoring match balls and various kits and always buy the home shirts.
“I buy them for the whole of my family. I expected to get at least two seasons out of my current shirt but I'll still go out and buy one.”
The 2006-07 home strip will be launched in July.
General feeling...it's not really on, what there doing but we'll still buy the new one anyway, exactly why they can get away with it, no point moaning really.

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