FA Carling Premiership
Bradford City vs Derby County
Saturday 21 April 2001
Kick Off: 3.00pm
At the Bradford & Bingley Stadium

If results go against us, we could find ourselves relegated by 4.50pm on Saturday following the visit of Jim Smith's Derby County who themselves are battling to avoid joining us in the drop. They will be keen to build on Monday's success over Leicester City, their first win in five attempts. The Rams though have not won away from home since 2 December and with the Premiership's top three providing the opposition for their final trio of games, victory on Saturday is a must.
