Derby County v Sheffield Wednesday – Live

May 08, 2021

Derby County face Sheffield Wednesday in a relegation showdown at Pride Park Stadium.

The Rams sit one place and two points above the drop zone with a -22 goal difference.

Rotherham United are 22nd on 41 points but have a better goal difference of -16 while Wednesday are 23rd on 40 points (-21 goal difference).

A win would keep Derby up. A draw might also be enough should Rotherham fail to beat Cardiff City in South Wales.

Should Derby lose, they will drop down into League One – the third tier of English football – for the first time in 35 years.

The Rams have won just one of their last 14 matches and they have lost their last six.

Rooney Selects Side For Final Game Against Sheffield Wednesday

Manager Wayne Rooney has made one change to his Derby County side for this afternoon’s crucial Sky Bet Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday (12:30pm kick-off).


All eyes are on Pride Park Stadium as Derby know a victory against the Owls will secure their status in the Championship for another season.

A draw could be enough, should Rotherham United fail to beat Cardiff City, whilst a defeat would see the Rams drop into Sky Bet League One.

It’s set to be a tense day and Rooney has made one change to the side which faced Swansea City a week ago as Patrick Roberts replaces Kamil Jozwiak, who reverts to the substitutes' bench.

Big news comes in the form of club captain Curtis Davies, who is named as a substitute and features in the matchday squad for the first time since suffering an Achilles injury against Brentford in December.

Derby County: Roos, Forsyth, Shinnie (C), Edmundson, Waghorn, Lawrence, Byrne, Kazim-Richards, Clarke, Roberts, Knight.

Substitutes: Marshall, Jozwiak, Bird, Sibley, Cashin, Buchanan, Ebosele, Davies, Watson.

Sheffield Wednesday: Westwood, Palmer, Paterson, Hutchinson, Pelupessy, Bannan (C), Reach, Borner, Windass, Rhodes, Dunkley.

Substitutes: Wildsmith, Harris, Green, Dele-Bashiru, Urhoghide, Shaw, Hunt, Brennan, Kachunga.
