It's been far too long since we travelled to Pride Park as favourites, but we'll have that tag this weekend, as we look to tame the wounded beast, I mean ram...
Despite being just three points behind Wednesday, Derby have endured a relatively poor start to the season by their recent standards, and Nigel Clough has come under fire.
Tuesday's trip to Cardiff City didn't help - the Rams falling to a thumping 6-1 defeat against the all-singing Bluebirds, and be rest assured that Derby will be looking to bounce straight back with victory against us on Saturday.
Derby's problems aside, Wednesday have enough in their locker to cause Derby problems, and come away with the three points if we're on song.
We're capable of doing that to the vast majority of the teams in this competition Championship league this season.
It's that expectation on Saturday, and expectation that Derby are there for the taking, which worries me slightly.
I've no doubts that, although confident of doing well at Pride Park, Brian Laws won't be underestimating County.
If anything, he could well be preparing his men for a backlash from Clough's troops, back in front of their home fans after their midweek humiliation, desperate to put things, almost, right.
It makes Wednesday's performance on Saturday even more important, for the focus to be on containing Derby and making the kind of start that will frustrate the living daylights out of the hosts, and their supporters.
Their confidence - if it's still there - will be brittle, it'll almost be hinging on the support that they get from what will no doubt be another bumper crowd at Pride Park, despite their current form.
We need to take that favourites tag and really make it count, kicking teams while they're down, and taking the points from them while we're at it.
I just hope that we do just that, and it'll go some way, at least, to repaying the Wednesday fans that have forked out £30 for the priviledge.
COME ON WEDNESDAY!
