Derby County face another huge game in their battle to avoid relegation from the Championship on Friday night, as they travel to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers.

The Rams have won just one of their last ten games, and go into the match one place and four points clear of the relegation zone, but having played two games more than 22nd placed Rotherham.

Blackburn meanwhile, go into the game having won just once in their last 15 outings, meaning this may be a decent opportunity for Wayne Rooney’s side to pick up a vital three points in the relegation battle.

Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Derby fans were keen to give their thoughts on their side’s starting lineup for the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Rams supporters had to say.
