Heading into the ultimate few weeks of the season, Derby have been left needing a miracle to acvoid the drop. And a dramatic day of Championship soccer on Easter Monday in the end noticed Derby succumb to relegation.
Derby have been unable to beat QPR, but it surely was Studying’s unimaginable comeback in opposition to Swansea which sealed their destiny. Swansea have been 4-1 up heading into the ultimate half-hour earlier than Tom Ince introduced Studying to inside two.
Lucas Joao then gave the hosts an opportunity of choosing up a draw minutes later earlier than Tom McIntyre equalised with the ultimate kick of the sport in stoppage time. The consequence pushed Derby 10 factors adrift of the relegation zone with simply three video games remaining.
They will now play within the third tier of English soccer for the primary time since 1986. American businessman Chris Kirchner was named as the popular bidder for Derby earlier this month and a suggestion had been accepted.
