Exeter City 1 Derby County 0
Rams lose another pre-season friendly Derby county with a relatively full strength team fall to yet another lower league club in their round of pre-season friendlies. Exeter took the lead in the 26th minutes and held on for a deserved win. Nigel Clough will need to re-evaluate and inspire his side and the newcomers within it, if Derby are to reach the position indictated by Rams CEO, Tom Glick. With just one week until the season kicks off Derby have played five official pre-season friendlies, winning just the first game against Burton Albion (3-1). The Rams have plunged to two score draws against Macclesfield (2-2) and (1-1) against Morcambe. Earlier this week Derby lead for a while before eventually being beaten by Crewe Alexandra (1-2). Today's defeat doesn't bode well for the visit of Premiership Aston Villa on Wednesday night and many supporters may be asking themselves if Tom Glicks promise of a refund on their season ticket may be worth taking up...!
