This weekend Derby County make the lengthy away trip to Carlisle for their eighth game of the season as they currently sit in 11th place.
The last time that the Rams were victorious at Brunton Park was in 2014 playing in the first round of the League Cup when the Rams came away with a 2-0 win in front of a crowd of 3,400.
Here is where that winning team is now...
Goalkeeper: Lee Grant
Lee Grant has boasted a lot of accolades in his career. The 40 year-old is now a first team coach at Ipswich Town having just retired from playing in 2022 whilst in a reserve role at Manchester United.
He started his playing career at Pride Park in 2002 after which he won the club’s young player of the year award in his first playing season. He remained at Derby for seven years before playing for Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley.
Grant then made a return to Derby in 2013 where he remained until 2017 in which time he made 96 Rams appearances totalling 170 Derby appearances in his career.
In 2017, he joined Stoke City and then went to Old Trafford in 2018 for four years before retiring last year.
Left back: Craig Forsyth
Craig Forsyth is the only player on this list to remain with the Rams. At the start of this season, the 34 year-old recieved a testimonial game celebrating 10 years at Pride Park.
Forsyth has made over 300 appearances for the Rams and continues to be part of the first team today, a true club legend.
Right back: Cyrus Christie
Cyrus Christie was very much part of a Derby squad that had the Premier League set in thier sights. The talented right back joined the Rams in 2014 from Coventry City for £111k and stayed at Pride Park for three years when Derby sold him to Middlesborough for £2.8 million.
Christie was a regular member of the first team making 119 appearances for the Rams. The Irishman also earnt himself 30 caps and Premier League football as he joined Fulham after leaving Boro in 2018 where he remained until 2022.
Christie is now at Hull City with former Rams boss Liam Rosenior.
Centre back: Richard Keogh
Richard Keogh has somewhat of a mixed response from Derby fans. Keogh was Derby’s long time captain since when he joined in 2012 and left in 2019.
The Irish international was at times the Rams’ best player but other times was very mistake prone. Despite this, Keogh made over 350 appearances for Derby witnessing highs and lows along the way.
He left the club under controversial circumstances in 2019 when he was found to have gotten in a car with Tom Lawrence and drunk driver Mason Bennett. The trio was involved in a car crash and eventually the club decided to part ways with their long term captain.
Following his departure, Keogh had spells at Huddersfield, MK Dons, Ipswich and Blackpool.
He now plays for Wycombe Wanderers where he has made 11 appearances.
Centre back: Zak Whitbread
Whitbread only made 11 Rams appearances in two years with the club. The American had previously played for Millwall, Norwich and Leicester where he made the majority of his professional appearances.
He was released by Derby in 2015 and then joined Shrewsbury Town who would become his last team as a professional. He retired in 2016 after the Shrews released him.
Centre midfielder: Will Hughes
Will Hughes is one of the best academy products that Derby have produced in recent years. He made over 160 appearances for Derby at a young age helping him break into the England U17 and U21 teams.
Hughes made his professional debut for the Rams in 2011 and remained a Derby player up until 2017 when he was snapped up by Premier League side Watford.
Hughes spent four years with the Hornets making over 100 appearances and scoring seven goals.
He now plays for Crystal Palace and has been at Selhurst Park since 2021. The Rams never managed to make it to the Premier League, but Will Hughes is still flying the flag today.
Centre midfielder: Craig Bryson
We all know what happened to Craig Bryson. Somewhat of a Derby legend, the Scottish midfielder is now a fitness coach with East Kilbride, but he’ll be remebered for playing in black and white.
Bryson spent eight years with the Rams making over 270 appearances and scoring 42 goals. After he left the Rams in 2019, he has since had spells at Aberdeen, St Johnstone and Stenhousemuir.
Centre midfielder: Jeff Hendrick
Jeff Hendrick was another of the Rams who managed to break into the Premier League following a very sucessful career at Pride Park. He was a Ram for five years in which time he made over 200 appearances scoring 26 goals.
He left the Rams in 2016 to join Burnley for nearly £12 million. Following that he joined Newcastle in 2020 and remains at St James’ Park now although he is currently on loan at Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday.
Left wing: Simon Dawkins
Simon Dawkins was somewhat of an underrated player for Derby. The Jamaican arrived at Pride Park in 2013 on loan from Spurs where he began his career. After a successful loan season, Dawkins signed permanently for the Rams in 2014 and stayed at Pride Park until 2016 making 47 appearances and scoring four goals.
When he left Derby, he went over to America to play for the San Jose Earthquakes. The 35 year-old remains in the USA today playing for Montery Bay FC who are in the second tier behind the MLS.
Right wing: Jamie Ward
Jamie Ward is one of the few players who made the move from Derby County to Nottingham Forest. The striker had a very successful spell with the Rams which spanned over four years. He contributed 29 goals in 125 games before he left for Forest in 2015.
He most recently was player manager at Ilkeston Town.
Striker: Chris Martin
Chris Martin is one of Derby’s best goalscorers in recent years. The Scotsman played for Derby from 2013 to 2020 after he joined from Norwich City.
Martin scored over 65 goals for Derby and made over 190 appearances.
His best season came in the 2013/14 season when he scored 20 goals for the Rams helping them to a playoff final appearance at Wembley.
He left the club in 2020 and has since played for Bristol City and Queen’s Park Rangers.
Some Derby fans have called for a return for the 34-year-old who is currently a free agent.
