Derby supporters are taking inflatable snakes to Stoke on Wednesday because they plan a reunion with Gary Rowett.
Three-thousand Derby fans will be at the bet365 Stadium, with many likely to take the objects to wave at Rowett, who walked from the club in-may controversially.
Rowett guided Derby to the play-offs last season but departed to become listed on Stoke following club’s relegation to the Championship. It really is understood one of many reasons Rowett thought we would quit Pride Park was after being informed his wage bill will be slashed almost in two.
Former Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard succeeded Rowett and has steered Derby in to the play-off positions before Tuesday night’s games, while Stoke are looking forward to lift-off in the next tier still.
But Rowett insists no regrets are had by him over leaving Derby and is ready for a hostile reception.
