ANDY Garner believes Derby’s main problem tonight could be the Blackpool fans.

Rams assistant boss Garner, who played for Pool from 1988-92, was at Bloomfield Road for Sunday’s game against Peterborough and said: “The Blackpool fans were absolutely magnificent.

“There were 12,000 of them and it sounded like 30,000. They never stopped and it must be great for their players to have that support.

“Nothing has changed from last season as far as Blackpool are concerned. They are very attacking and they like to play.

“I think Blackpool will be up there come the end of the season, no doubt about it.

“The back four is the same and very solid. Kevin Phillips will score goals and Gary Taylor-Fletcher is in form. They are a very strong side.”

Derby have won their first two league games for the first time since 1973, when manager Nigel Clough’s late father Brian was in charge.

The Rams haven’t won their first three since 1948.
