The Rams as they are popularly called got relegated to the third tier of English football after losing 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers ( QPR) on Monday, April 18th, 2022. QPR ended a six-match winless run to move up to 10th in the table and to within two points of the top six, although sixth-placed Sheffield United could increase that gap if they beat Bristol City later on Monday.

Derby’s season suffered a collapse following a 21 points deduction which was melted on them by the organisers of the league as their punishment for breaches of profitability and sustainability rules.

If not for the 21-point deduction this season, for entering administration and breaching the EFL’s financial regulations, Derby would be 17th in the table and almost as close to the play-off places as the relegation spots.
