Derby County’s 3-0 home win over Leyton Orient in Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon saw the class of 2023/24 set an impressive new club record.

Paul Warne’s side picked up a vital win in the race for automatic promotion from the third tier thanks to an early Kane Wilson strike and a pair of finishes from central defender Sonny Bradley.

The win was Derby’s 26th in League One this season which, alongside eight draws, has taken their points tally to 86 with two league fixtures remaining.

The points return is a new club record in a season since the English Football League increased the number of points for a win from two to three in 1981.

The previous record was 85, achieved in the Championship, during the 2013/14 season with Nigel Clough overseeing the early stages of the campaign prior to the appointment of Steve McClaren.

When two points were on offer for a win, Derby’s highest-ever return was 63.

That was a total achieved on three occasions, in Division Three North in 1955/56 and 1956/57 under Harry Storer Jr and in the Second Division in 1968/69 under Brian Clough.
