The last time both sides were in the Premier League together, Tuncay Sanli scored the decisive goal at Pride Park when we faced off in December 2007.

Stewart Downing’s cross was well-swept on the volley by Tuncay, which was his third goal for Boro in as many games at the time.

Albert Adomah got Boro on the way to three precious points against the Rams in our promotion-winning campaign, where a 2-0 win at the Riverside kept us at the Championship’s summit.

Derby, sitting in second spot at the time, conceded two goals in the space of a couple of minutes as Adomah latched on to Grant Leadbitter’s through ball and chipped past Lee Grant to make it 1-0 before George Friend added a second a couple of minutes later.

Boro went on to claim promotion to the top flight that season by finishing in second behind Burnley, while Derby battled it out in the play-offs.

Ex-Derby loanee Patrick Bamford scored for Boro at Pride Park back in 2015, with the win taking us up to second place.

Bamford, who went on to be crowned the league’s best player for the 2014/15 season, rounded the Rams keeper and finished from a tight angle to earn Boro all three points.

Carlos Marinelli struck twice for Boro in 2001 in a 5-1 triumph at the Riverside over Saturday’s opponents, with his second making its way into the six of the best.

The Argentinian volleyed home his first and his second saw him skip past one Derby defender and picking out the left corner from a difficult angle.

Szilard Nemeth and Alen Boksic were also among the scorers that day for Boro in a convincing win at the Riverside.

Barry Robson’s featured a number of times in six of the best against other teams and his well-struck volley at Pride Park in March 2010 makes its way in, too.

Derby cleared an Andrew Taylor cross but only as far as the former Boro midfielder, who lashed home into the top right corner.

Christian Ziege spent just one season on Teesside, but his free kick against the Rams in August 1999 was one of his most memorable Boro goals, which came in a 3-1 win.

Brian Deane opened the scoring for the away side that day and Ziege, who went on to have spells with Liverpool and Tottenham, curled in a left-footed free kick from 25 yards out into the top right.
