Derby County revealed their new blue-and-white-striped third shirt for the first time in the Coca-Cola Championship clash at Barnsley. 


It's a top not worn since the glory days of the 1970s but has been introduced following feedback from fans who have said that it was one of their favourite Derby County kits.


And it is being worn for a match earlier than planned after proving popular with the players - who have already tasted victory in the new home and slime-green away shirts.


Argentine striker Tito Villa and Rams legend Archie Gemmill both donned the kit for these exclusive verdicts and Villa is particularly keen to wear it in action for the first time.


He said: "I like the new kit. It is very different to our other kits but it is very nice.


"It also reminds me of the Argentina kit so I am looking forward to playing in it and hopefully I will score a few goals in it too."


Gemmill enjoyed success in blue and white during the 1970s and admitted that the kit re-ignited memories of some of his great times as a Ram.


"We wore blue and white under Dave Mackay and did well with that shirt," Derby's 1975 title-winning captain said.


"It is the same as the Argentina kit and they are obviously a very good team to follow so hopefully it can bring the players some luck this season.


"The kit feels absolutely superb to wear and if the players can play as well as the shirt feels there will be no problems for the rest of the season."


Revealing the new third kit now gives Derby fans the best opportunity to decide which one they prefer.
