Promotion hopefuls went head to head at the Baseball Ground
18 October ~ When they meet today Derby and Wolves will be striving to put pressure on those currently lying just above both clubs in the play-off positions. One particularly memorable encounter between the two was played out 20 years ago, as the 1994-95 season came to a head in April. The Rams were hopeful of closing the relatively narrow gap between themselves and the play-off positions while Wolves – fourth in the table – still had aspirations of an automatic promotion spot. Don Goodman opened the scoring for the visitors, but Derby struck back as a Paul Simpson brace came either side of a Marco Gabbiadini effort. Wolves were not to accept their fate though, as centre-back Dean Richards notched a double to secure a point for his team.
Neither side were to reach the Premier League that season. Derby finished in ninth, while Wolves succumbed to a play-off semi-final defeat to Bolton, after winning the first leg. Nick Roberts
