‘Let it go’, ‘Waste of time’ – Many Derby County fans react to significant announcement

Many Derby County fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club have lodged an appeal against the points deduction that they received last month.

The Rams were docked 12 points by the EFL after entering administration and are currently bottom of the Championship standings.

As confirmed by the EFL’s official website, this particular appeal will now be referred to an independent arbitration panel who will consider representation from both parties before making a decision.

A report from The Athletic in September revealed that Derby made up to 20 of their staff redundant as a result of their financial difficulties.

Yet to find a new owner for the Rams, the club’s administrators will be hoping to sanction a sale in the not too distant future.

According to BBC Sport, Derby will try to convince the arbitration panel that the club’s current issues were caused by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
