DERBY V Coventry @ PPS 09.04.07

A must win game really, we'll wait and see what Brum and Sunderland do today, but I can't see Burnley doing us anyfavours, and all though Wolves is a tough game for Sunderland, the form there in, it would be no shock to see them win.

Destiny is still in our own hands 5 wins = promotion.

Howard is back from suspension, Jones and Barnes are fit, not sure about Pearson, we really could do with him back, it would be a big boost.

Looking at Brum's remaining fixtures, they've got to go away to Leicester, Wolves and Preston, the Leicester game their game in hand which they have to fit in, in the week, meaning they play 7 games in April. They also have Southampton and Sheff Wed at home, first up is Barnsley away.

Some tricky games in their, I'm starting to shift my focus towards them rather than Sunderland, as the team we need to stay above.

I'm fairly confident, we need to score 2 goals though as we can't keep a clean sheet anymore, Howard to get one on his return in a 2-1 win.

Well that was a poor performance, we had a lot of possesion, but created very little, I never thought we would score. And it took a rather bizarre goal, it was a great cross from McEveley, Howard headed it back across goal, but it went past Oakley, who then did some sort of Scorpion Kick too score I'll see if I can get some highlights up.

Amazingly though, with Brum losing again, it's still in ourown hands, 4 wins from 4 sends us up, so nothings changed in that regards. Sunderland are a shoe in for the title though.

Lucky for you that your poor form is coinciding with Birminghams too.

Billy Davies has issued a rallying cry to his Derby troops, insisting the time has come for them to make a big push for the Premiership.

The Rams now have their destiny in their own hands, as they sit four points clear of Birmingham following a drama-filled Easter Monday.

Derby had to battle back from a goal down to draw with Coventry, while Blues were beaten at Barnsley.

The Rams have four games left in their campaign and Davies is looking for his players to dig in and secure promotion.

"We've now got to go and grab this with both hands," said Davies.

"We've got to be confident, we've got to be positive and we've got to have that belief.

"We know it won't be easy, we know there's tough games ahead, we know there's still lots of twists and turns."

Coventry assistant manager Tim Flowers felt The Sky Blues merited three points from their trip to Pride Park, having led through Leon McKenzie.

"We've come here to the champions-elect, a team that have been playing some outstanding football, and arguably should have won the game," said Flowers. "We've restricted them to a great save from Mash [Andy Marshall] in the first half and then a backheel scissor-kick type thing which is fantastic piece of opportunist skill.

"I thought we asked questions going the other way. I thought [Isaac] Osbourne was outstanding on the right.

"McKenzie was a thorn down the left-hand channel. But what we did do this week was move the ball quicker, one and two-touch and switch play a little bit more.

You're still on automatic promotion place. Nice gap between you and Brum.

great goal another point on the board, and still with a bit of daylight from the 3rd position.
