Derby captain Richard Keogh says that no other fixture comes close to the East-Midlands derby with fierce rivals Nottingham Forest.
The Rams take on Alex McLeish's Forest side hoping to complete a league double over them, after a controversial 1-0 win at the City Ground in September, where Dexter Blackstock was dismissed for elbowing Keogh.
The former Bristol City defender is keen to secure another three points, which would put them level on points with their opponents on Saturday.
Keogh revealed: "Earlier in the season at the City Ground, the atmosphere and the game was fantastic. It really gets your blood pumping and is the type of game you relish as a professional and the reason why you play football.
"I have played in Bristol derby but I think the Derby vs Forest rivalry pips it for me; the whole emotion that comes with the game is something that will always live with me."
The match-winner in September was midfielder Craig Bryson, and Nigel Clough is leaving it as late as possible to see if he can return from injury in time for the big game.
