Richard Jolly at Wembley

Derby County 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

It used to be 39 steps at Wembley. Now there are 112 that Matt Oakley had to climb to lift the Championship play-off trophy. And yet the strides Derby County have taken are far, far greater than that. Finishing in 20th place 12 months ago and burdened by huge debts, they are now a Premiership club. It is a remarkably rapid journey, albeit via the scenic route of the play-offs.
