Captain Wayne Madsen says this week's LV= County Championship fixture with Warwickshire is an 'exciting prospect' as Derbyshire attempt to secure Division One cricket for 2014.
Speaking ahead of the final four-day game of the season, Madsen said: "If you had given us this position a month or two ago we would have taken it.
"The boys are buzzing for it, like they were last year when we entered the last game knowing that we needed to win our last game to get the Division Two title. So it's a similar thing this year.
"We have to win. It's an exciting prospect for all the guys as it's been a long season, but it's all been worth it to get to this position.
"A lot of the guys over the last three or four games have made some real good contributions and can take a lot of confidence into the last game.
"We are going to need to play well as Warwickshire are a fantastic team and have some top players so we will have to be on top of our game.
"They also want a result out of the game as they chase a top three finish, so it could make for a good spectacle."
