Manager Frank Lampard knows the Sky Bet Championship's play-off race will go down to the wire - but is concentrating on each game as they come.

Queens Park Rangers are the visitors to Pride Park Stadium on Easter Monday and the Rams know they need a victory to keep themselves in the hunt for that final play-off spot.

Middlesbrough currently occupy sixth-position, whilst Bristol City sit in seventh.

Both have tricky away games on Monday, whilst the Rams have been dominant in recent fixtures in front of their own supporters.

A 6-1 victory over Rotherham United and a 4-0 win over Bolton Wanderers have lifted expectations at home.

With tough away fixtures for Derb coming up, including a trip to Ashton Gate to take on Lee Johnson’s Bristol City, the manager knows nothing in the Sky Bet Championship is a given.

“We can only focus on ourselves,” he told RamsTV. “We have a game in hand on Boro and we play Bristol City so it’s so tight.

“You can’t count out anyone below us, even though the gap is slightly bigger at the moment. We firstly have to focus on QPR back at home and we need to rest and recover in preparation for that game.

“It’s easy to talk about it but we have to win games. We need to understand that other games around that, we can win or lose and so can they so there are four games in the Championship and that is a lot of football and a lot of twists and turns too.

“Monday is our only focus at the minute and we need to be ready for it.”
