Middlesbrough arrive in Derby tonight for what surely must be the most fascinating fixture in the Championship so far.
Last week David Nugent moved from Leicester to sign a three year deal at the Riverside and, with today’s game fast approaching, Rams fans feared a Boro side containing the lethal striker that always seems to score against Derby.
Well, here’s the stat – in 15 appearances against the Rams, Nugent has scored 8.
I remember doing a fan file for Four Four Two magazine’s season preview a couple of years ago and I put Nugent down as the opposition player I secretly admire. He is a great striker at this level with vast experience.
Anyway, on with the game tonight, make your prediction below.
