Sky coverage just adds to the pressure. We'll gift Reading a couple of goals, and we'll miss out on the playoffs.

Yay.

Derby 1-2 Reading

Much as I hope you guys lose, I just can't see it. Even if it means a last minute Bent goal to equalise. Again.

3-1 Derby.

We've won 1 league game in 13, scored 1 goal in 5.5 games. Players gave up with the league as soon as avoiding relegation was confirmed a few weeks ago. We'll play a few fringe players. No chance of any points.

Want to win, but with our defence who knows.

We'll fail so badly in the PO's anyway, so either way it won't matter.

Seems to be too big of an ask to rely on Reading at the moment, they seem to have been in holiday mode ever since they beat Bradford in the cup (Wembley game aside).

Derby 3-1

"Chalobah picks it up and finds Chris Gunter down the right. He rolls it down the line to McCleary who steps past Forsyth with ease and charges to the byline. McCleary plays one to the back post to Cox who nods it back across the face of goal FOR JAMIE MACKIE TO WIN IT FOR THE ROYALS IN THE SIXTH MINUTE OF ADDED TIME"

The sound of 400 bus drives going potty in the away end is drowned out by the sound of laughter coming down the A52.

I think we might get a cheeky result here (please do check me for drug usage after this post). The players (I hope) would not like to end the season on such a pathetic note as has been the case in recent weeks.

Southbank, put your straightjacket on as that is crazy talk...

Another stat to add to the pessimism. In 2015 we are the lowest goal scorers in the Championship, and second worst points gatherers.

I want what you have been smoking Southbank.When you say cheeky result you mean we may only lose 1-0.

Don't be daft. The bus drivers are back in their vehicles long before then!

I haven't got many great memories vs Reading to say I've seen a fair few games of ours. The 1-0 cup win this year probably shades the 2-2 draw the other year when Hendrick announced his arrival to our first team with a screamer. Missed a few good ones.

I can remember plenty of bad ones though..
-Losing 4 nil on the final day of that PL season
-Drawing 2-2 at Pride Park, Shane Long literally pushing Lee Camp out the way to grab a scummy equaliser late on.
-Losing 1-0 at the Madj in that PL season, Doyle?
-Noel Hunt scoring a diving header at Pride Park a few years ago to either win/draw.
- 5-0 at the Madj in your record breaking year.

Decent.

Yeah it was Doyle who scored in the Prem game.Shocking game that was.Not great viewing for the people watching it on Sky.

That 2-2 was probably one of our worst performances that season.Thanks to Sky that game was on New Years Eve at half 5.Think Andrew Davis got sent off for Derby.

No way Derby lose this. Any Derby fan who genuinely thinks defeat is the most likely result is lying to themselves. Despite their car-crash form it would be a big shock if Reading got anything here, let alone a win.

I have never been so sure of a team getting at least a point. Genuinely don't understand why Derby fans are so pessimistic.

I'm pinning our hopes on a Blackburn win. Though it is not at all guaranteed we'll win at home, and by 2 goals which seem to be needed. Dropped a lot of points at home of late against "bad" teams.

One team has Premier League football and millions of pounds to play for, in front of a sell-out home crowd. The other has been on the beach for weeks, has nothing to play for and are set to have their lowest finish in years.

Could be a cricket score, Derby 0 Reading 5.

Is there going to be highlights shown of other games on this fixture on Sky?

That Keogh is a bombscare of a defender every time I watch Derby, he's useless. Did I see that he was in the team of the year?

Reading aren't playing like a team with nothing to play for, pressing very well so far
