Former Derby County man Darren Moore has claimed the Rams can reach the Premier League, and be successful when they do so.
In an interview with the Derby Telegraph, the former central defender has stated his desire to see Derby get back into the big time, and he believes that they can achieve great things when they do make it back.
Moore said: “I’m sure that the club will get back to the Premier League soon. Hopefully next season.”
“Derby can look to the likes of West Brom and Bournemouth in terms of where they could be. At West Brom, we’re in a good position in the Premier League and have a great structure.
“The Championship is a difficult league to play in. It’s tough and promotion can take time”.
The Rams have fallen short this season once again in the race for the promotion places. They replaced Nigel Pearson early on in the season after a miserable start, with Steve McClaren steadying the ship and pushing them up the table.
However, a poor run of form then cost the former England man his job too.
Derby now sit in 10th in the Championship table, a massive nine points off the playoff spots with only eight games to play.
