Derby County are set to appoint an administrator today or tomorrow, as per an update on Twitter from Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett.
According to Dorsett’s tweet, when this process begins, that is when The Rams will be docked 12 points.
Dorsett has also outlined that Mel Morris is set to hold talks with the vast majority of the club’s workforce this morning.
The tweet states that he will be addressing the club’s staff to inform them of the administration process.
Are these 22 Derby County stats real or fake?
Derby released a statement on Friday evening, which outlined the club’s intention of appointing administrators.
John Percy of The Telegraph has also suggested that Derby could face even further punishment in the form of deducted points, indicating that an additional nine points could be taken away for financial breaches.
It is certainly an extremely difficult time for Derby fans and club staff, who face extreme uncertainty about the security of their jobs.

In regard to the start of the season, Derby can take a load of positives to how they have begun the campaign, surpassing the vast majority of expectations and only losing two of their opening eight matches.
However, -12 points will seemingly undo all their hard work, but given how they have started the 2021/22 campaign, it does not make relegation a certain. If the figure eventually ends up being -21, then the task seems too steep, and they would have to be showing promotion form to stay in the division.
In the long run, entering administration could be pivotal in Derby’s fight.
