‘I’m getting a beer’ – Derby County fans react as Sheffield Wednesday draw secures Championship survival
Derby County have been relegated from the Championship following their 3-3 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
Wayne Rooney’s Derby County side have suffered relegation from the Championship on the final day of the season, after an enthralling 3-3 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday today.
The Rams had been placed precariously above the drop zone throughout the course of 2021 and went into today’s game knowing that a win would see them remain in the second tier.
The game was drab as expected in the opening stages, but Sam Hutchinson would break the deadlock ahead of half-time to put the visitor in front.
Sheffield Wednesday though would find themselves behind soon after the restart, with Martyn Waghorn and Patrick Roberts scoring in quick succession.
But Wednesday would then do exactly the same – goals from Callum Paterson and Julian Borner gave them a 3-2 lead on the 70-minute mark.
But Martyn Waghorn’s penalty with little over 10 minuets to play proved the difference for Derby.

Terrible season and we’re so lucky to survive. Rooney needs to go. Mel needs to sell and there needs to be BIG changes for next season but at least we’re staying in the Championship #dcfcfans https://t.co/WUBDygKR0x
