Derby County could only muster a draw from their game with Nottingham Forest at the weekend at the City Ground.
In isolation, a draw away at your fierce rivals’ is never a bad thing but, unfortunately for the Rams in the grander scheme of things, it wasn’t the best result.
Indeed, Villa, Fulham and Cardiff all won to stretch the gap between them and the automatic spots and now Gary Rowett’s men might have to make do with a play-off spot.
With that in mind, then, and their recent average at best form, we asked fans on Twitter whether or not they’d expect their side to get promoted this season.
And, rather strikingly, this was the landslide result:

Clearly, then, quite a lot of Rams fans simply don’t think their side is going to do it and that is probably thanks to the amount of close calls they have had in recent years.
The club has flirted with promotion for a while but never got over the line and it looks as though a lot of fans are concerned that history is going to repeat itself once again.
Thoughts, Rams fans? Let us know below!
