Derby County will be keen to bounce back this evening as they make the trip to 13th-placed Exeter City.

The Rams come off the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Shrewsbury at Pride Park on Saturday where they'll feel they did enough to win.

However, despite the poor result, Paul Warne's side are still second in League One and full embroiled in the promotion race.

Defender Sonny Bradley has been getting more and more gametime lately after signing for the Rams in the summer. Ahead of tonight's game, he spoke to Rams TV on what Derby need to do to earn promotion.

He said: " We've got experienced players, real quality and players that between us have earned a lot of promotions in that dressing room. From a fans' point of view, you can see why they expect us to be up there and I completely agree.

"It's just about finding a way to win as many matches as we can and hopefully by the end of the season that's enough to get promoted.

"We're at that time of the season now where we are looking around us to see what everyone else is doing. Having said that, if we win our games, we will give ourselves a great chance."

The Rams missed a chance to gain some ground on their promotion rivals at the weekend against Shrewsbury. It was a possession heavy game for Paul Warne's side, however they conceded a late equaliser meaning they left Pride Park with just a point.

Bradley says that the disappointment was clear to see: "It stung, it still hurts a little bit. It's a little bit raw. It hurts more because it was such a sloppy goal to concede.

"Up until the goal, we'd defended really well. Maybe it was just a bit naivety from ourselves and it was a punch in the nose in the end. It's important now that we look at it, recognise why it happened and make sure that it won't happen again.

"It just shows that it doesn't matter who you play against in this division, if you do switch off then you'll concede goals and that's what happened on Saturday."

Bradley and his teamates will be desperate to right a wrong tonight and beat an in form Exeter City side to put some pressure on the teams around them in League One.
