The 2013/2014 near-miss season
When it comes to close-run seasons, this really was one for the Rams, who were so close to reaching the Premier League.
They lost 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers in the play-offs and whilst some consider this a failure, it must be recognised how well the Rams did throughout the campaign.
They were only eight points behind Burnley in the race for the second automatic promotion place and they made quick work of Brighton in their play-off semi final.
It was a cruel way to finish a season and you’ve got to credit the Rams for keeping pace and coming so close. It just wasn’t to be.
