‘Never a dull day’ – Many Derby County fans deliver verdict on ‘disheartening’ reports that could scupper 2020/21 feat



Derby County face a potential points deduction that could still relegate them from the Championship, despite the fact results over the weekend secured their place in the division for 2021/22. 

As per a report from The Athleticthe EFL have won their appeal against Derby’s breach of Financial Fair Play, meaning that either a fine or point deduction is on the horizon for the Rams.

Breaches of FFP stretch back over the last couple of years, including the sale of Pride Park and recording the value of the club’s players.

John Percy has also reported how Derby threatened legal action against the Telegraph if they printed this story, with the Rams now finding themselves in a position of limbo.

Any point deduction this season would relegate them and keep Wycombe Wanderers in the Championship, whilst there’s also the possibility that Derby could begin 2021/22 on a negative tally instead, similar to what Sheffield Wednesday had to endure in the campaign just gone.
