Derby County boss Phillip Cocu believes his team have a realistic chance of making the playoffs with another nine games left in the Championship season. The Rams have recently found form with back-to-back league victories and that has propelled them to the top half of the table for the first time since November.
Moreover, they are now within five points off sixth-placed Preston North End and Cocu feels the team could make a late push for a playoff spot, he told: “There is always a chance if you count the amount of games and points. We have some difficult games to play against teams above us, but if you have a result against them you get closer.
