It’s ana horrible wet and windy day on the Sussex coast.

Just as it was last time Albion enjoyed a win over Derby.

Ashley Barnes and Andrea Orlandi were on target in a 2-1 success at the Amex in January 2013.

But the match is perhaps best remembered for something not shown on these brief highlights - Gus Poyet’s spectacular and totally unprecedented use of the offside trap as his side defended the final free-kick of the game.

Albion took four points off the Rams last term and did the double in 2011-12 helped by a 2-0 home win memorable for a Vicente masterclass.

Right-back Inigo Calderon has done well at home to Derby. He scored two seasons ago and set up goals for Orlandi and Leo Ulloa in the last two campaigns.
