Derby, like Saints are without a win in the new season. In fact, the last time Derby won a competitive game was on 17th Sept 2007. Nearly one year ago. Paul Jewell has brought in 12 new faces to his squad and will be looking to gel very soon.

Very raw still, but definately one to be watching. Well according to my mate Goose who is a Derby fan.
