Blaming Covid-19

Derby County have appealed against the 12-point deduction they received for going into administration.

The automatic punishment was triggered when the Rams officially entered administration on 22 September.

The club is arguing the situation was caused by the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and therefore the points deduction should not apply.

Derby are bottom of the Championship, on two points, seven adrift of fourth-bottom Hull.

The English Football League said the Rams' points total will continue to reflect their deduction "at this current time".

Without the deduction, Wayne Rooney's side would be 14th in the

"The administrators at Derby County have lodged an appeal against the 12-point deduction imposed on the club's 2021-22 season total on 22 September 2021," an EFL statement said.

"As a consequence, this matter has been referred to an independent arbitration panel who will consider representations from both parties before making a determination."

They'll appeal anything, but they've got zero chance of winning this one.

It is clear in the rules and regulations that a team will be deducted points for entering administration with no exemptions.

Besides, all the evidence points to the fact that the reason they went into administration was down to more than Covid.

The majority of Championship clubs haven't gone into administration and aren't going to so, legally, it's a poor argument.

EFL are going after them as it is, due to Derby appealing literally everything. They're not helping themselves with this.
