Derby County keep another clean sheet to equal club record

22 October 2014

Derby County kept their sixth successive clean sheet on Tuesday to equal a club record set in 1912.

The Rams were 1-0 winners at Bloomfield Road against Blackpool, and that followed shut-outs in their previous four league games against Reading, Millwall, Bournemouth and Bolton Wanderers, as well as their Capital One Cup tie with the Royals.

Even an injury to first-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant didn't effect their defensive stability, as debutant Jack Butland slotted in seamlessly to keep the Tangerines out, after joining on loan from Stoke City.

Cardiff City's Peter Whittingham was the last player to find the back of Derby's net, on 20th September - nearly 10 hours of football ago.

The Rams still have a long way to go to break the record for the most consecutive clean sheets in Football League history, which is 11 games, set by Millwall, York City and Reading.

11    Millwall - 1925/26    
        York City - 1973/74    
        Reading - 1978/79    

10    Charlton - 1997/98    

9      Stockport County - 2006/07   
        Chelsea - 1905/06   
        Leeds - 1927/28
