Simpson And Barton - Their Chance To Return!

Last updated : 22 May 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

Derby stormed into the Championship play-off final by hammering Brighton 6-2 on aggregate and but can QPR stop them on Saturday?

Steve McClaren's men were a class above the Seagulls over two legs, winning the clash at the iPro Stadium 4-1, and that was their seventh win in the last eight games.

Even when they went a goal down at Brighton there was not an ounce of panic as they turned the first leg around to win 2-1 and romped to victory in the return.

They've got goals from all over the pitch, not just leading scorer Chris Martin, as well as pace going forward with the likes of Jamie Ward, Johnny Russell and Will Hughes.

On the vast open spaces of Wembley this could well be a factor against QPR's ageing squad.

Rangers will look to keep it tight for as long as possible in the hope experienced campaigners Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar will create a chance for the lethal Charlie Austin.

There's also more pressure on QPR given their financial outlay in recent seasons and Harry The Bung could be on his way if his side comes off second best.
