Derby County have underachieved this season after being among the favourites for a return to the top-flight before the 2016/17 campaign got underway.

The Rams go into the final few matches of the season with nothing to play for, having dropped out of the play-off race.

Sheffield Wednesday’s victory over QPR meant that it was mathematically impossible for Derby to make the top six, meaning their attentions have turned to next season.

Derby are onto their third permanent manager of he season after sacking two of their gaffers following poor form.

Gary Rowett replaced Steve McClaren in March, who succeeded Nigel Pearson, who lasted just nine league games.

Gary Rowett must use the final few games to assess his squad to see who he wants to keep at the club next season.

Recent performances under Rowett have been poor, despite a decent start.

There are several players that haven’t performed to the standards expected by the fans this season and they are at risk of being axed.
