One of Derby's heroes, centre half Roy McFarland, in action during an earlier game.



Another hero in action, Kevin Hector against Arsenal.






Monday nights results went very much in Derby's favour as Leeds United lost 2-1 at Wolverhampton and Liverpool could only manage a goal less draw at Arsenal. Derby Champions by one point with the team already celebrating on holiday in Majorca.
