Derby County were eliminated from the FA Cup on Wednesday night by Premier League opponents Leicester City – but the travelling support claim to have won the battle on the terraces.

In the fourth-round replay at the King Power Stadium, extra-time goals by Wilfried Ndidi and Demarai Gray settled the clash in the hosts’ favour.

Steve McClaren did not field a full-strength side for the game, suggesting that the Rams manager has prioritised finishing in the Championship top six this season.

Despite their team losing, the Derby fans are proud of the noise and atmosphere they created from the away end during the game.
