 Results in favor of direct competitors reduce Derby County’s chances in the relegation battle.

Wayne Rooney’s most impressive moments at Derby

In parallel with the exciting developments of the Champions League quarter-final series, the football village in the middle of this week also witnessed compensatory matches in the framework of the second division of the Championship. At Select Car Leasing Stadium, Reading welcomes rival Stoke City. Having to face the club ranked above, the home team took full advantage of the home ground to keep 3 points completely.

In the 13th minute, Michael Morrison opened the scoring for Reading. Despite being leveled by Romaine Sawyers at the end of the first half, the army led by coach Paul Ince still enjoyed the joy of victory thanks to Stoke’s own own goal by Taylor Harwood-Bellis in the 63rd minute.

An important victory helped Paul Ince’s teachers and students raise the total score to 37, the unbeaten run of 4 matches brought Reading to increase the gap with the relegation group. The home team of Select Car Leasing is currently ranked 21st, 8 points more than the 22nd ranked team, Barnsley.

 Reading takes advantage of the relegation battle.

The joy of Paul Ince and his students caused concern for Wayne Rooney’s Derby County. After 40 matches played, Derby County must accept the 23rd position. If it cannot improve its position in the rankings, Rooney’s team will have to accept tickets to League One next season.

In the last match, the Pride Park team welcomed Preston North End at the holy place. Occupying the numerical advantage after Liam Lindsay’s red card in the 32nd minute, but early in the second half, Derby County lost again when Max Bird was disqualified. Overcoming difficulties, the home team defeated the guests thanks to the only goal of the name on the field from the bench – Ravel Morrison.

 Derby County’s relegation door is very narrow.

The 3 points helped the club led by Rooney cut the circuit for 3 matches without knowing the smell of victory, but the hope of staying in the Championship is still very slim. In the context of the tournament with only 6 rounds remaining, Derby County is 9 points behind Reading in a safe position. Rooney’s teachers and students are even playing more than the team ranked right above Barnsley 1 match. In the last 6 matches, Derby County has 3 away trips and 1 of 3 home matches is the clash with Fulham – the club that occupies the top of the table.

Remember last season, Derby County was suffocated in the final round. However, the club’s troubles are too difficult this season, it is likely that Rooney will have to taste the bitter fruit of relegation for the first time in his coaching career. Unfortunately for the Shrek guy, if there was no penalty to deduct 21 points, Derby County would now be relegated .
