​​How far will Peterborough’s fans travel to Derby?

The driving distance between Peterborough and Derby is only 68 miles (109km) and on a normal day it should take around 1 hour and 45 minutes. However, the first day of 2024 is not shaping up to be exactly normal with storm Hank promising to bring road chaos over the weekend. 

Considering that some of the roads in the Peak District are prone to flooding we advise all away supporters to give themselves plenty of extra time to make it to the stadium on time.
