The Clarets are unbeaten in six visits by the Rams, writes James Bird.
Last time out
Goals from Charlie Austin and Michael Duff secured three points on Boxing Day last season. It was a familiar sight for Clarets fans as defenders failed to deal with a Kieran Trippier cross allowing Austin to sweep the ball home. Derby should have levelled soon after but Mark O’Brien could only head wide. Ross Wallace hit the post on the hour mark before his far post corner found Duff rising highest to nod home. Derby suffered their seventh away loss of the campaign as the Clarets recorded their first win in five.

One for us
The Clarets were 3-0 winners on a very foggy day at Turf Moor. All the goals came early in the game with Kevin McDonald opening the scoring after six minutes with his first goal in a Claret shirt. It was a half volley that left Roy Carroll with no chance after Steve Caldwell had headed the ball down from a half cleared corner. Martin Paterson added the final two goals. His first coming after 14 minutes as he finished a sublime move by the team and his second after 22 minutes as he slid in to meet a Chris Eagles cross. The fog then descended on Turf Moor, prompting an orange ball to be used for the second half! But neither side could find the net again, with the game finishing 3-0.

One for them
A Friday evening tie saw the Clarets beaten 2-0 by a determined Derby side. Burnley never looked likely to score in a game that brought a nine match unbeaten run to an end for Steve Cotterill’s men. The man keeping the Clarets as bay for the Rams is a familiar face to Burnley fans now as it was our very own Lee Grant, with Danny Coyne between the posts for us. Tudgay got the first for the visitors as he headed into the bottom corner from a curling free kick after 57 minutes. Marco Reich then finished the game off as he rolled the ball into an empty net after Grzegorz Rasiak squared having made Coyne commit to coming out of his net.
