Derby County boss shares his targets for the rest of the 2016/17 season

Derby County manager Gary Rowett is aiming for back to back victories in his final two games of the season to end with some personal pride, the club’s official Twitter account is reporting.

Gary Rowett has had a mixed start to life as Derby County manager.

During his first game in charge, the former Burton Albion and Birmingham City boss oversaw a 2-2 draw with fierce rivals Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands derby as a consequence of conceding an injury time equaliser.

He then masterminded three back to back wins to keep Derby’s play-off ambitions alive but they have lost two and drawn one of his last three games in charge.

Rowett wants to end the season positively and pick up two wins in the final two games, despite Derby only being able to achieve an eighth place finish.

Derby have two very winnable games coming up: a home clash against Wolves this weekend before a trip to bottom of the league Rotherham.

Rowett said:

“If we can finish saying that we’ve won five games, lost two and drawn two then that is reasonably positive.”

Derby fans – can you pick up two wins in the final two games? What have you made of Rowett so far? Let us know below…
