  9. Listen: Rowett out to end the season on a high

    BBC Derby Sport

    Derby County boss Gary Rowett has said the club must play for pride and end the season as if they were going for promotion at Rotherham on Sunday.

    Ex-Birmingham boss Rowett said: "I've said to the players that if we can finish the season with five wins, two draws and two defeats in nine games that's virtually two points a game. 

    "As we know that gives you 92 points over a season, I know that's very easy to extrapolate, but that’s the type of form you'll need over a reasonable period." 

    The Rams can end the season in eighth if they beat Rotherham and Norwich lose to QPR.
