Darren Bent celebrates Derby success on Twitter despite admitting being a spectator

The 32-year-old Derby striker has taken to social media.

Derby County forward Darren Bent has celebrated the club guaranteeing themselves a place in the play-offs on Twitter.

But the veteran striker admits he has been a 'spectator' of late.

He still says he is 'buzzing' for his team-mates, however, and everyone associated with the Rams:

So can Derby, under the guidance of Darren Wassall and Harry Redknapp, make it out of the play-offs, unlike when they lost to Queens Park Rangers at Wembley (then led by Redknapp)?

Whichever side of Brighton, Burnley or Middlesbrough ends up in the play-offs will no doubt be the favourites to go up.

Hull City aren't any slouches, either, while Sheffield Wednesday will perhaps represent the outside-chance contenders.

Derby had been on course for automatic promotion for much of the season and are one of the strongest sides in the Championship. But, after a topsy turvy campaign, do the squad believe they are capable of going up?
