At Pride Park, Derby County has just found a victory in the First Division.

Derby will not have Tom Huddlestone, Duane Holmes and Krystian Bielik in this match and Rushain Hepburn-Murphy will not be fit. Chris Martin will hope to be rewarded with a free start from a hat-trick over the weekend when the Lambs beat home owner Sheffield Wednesday with a 3-1 score in the English Premier League, this victory helps Coach Philip Cocu and his teachers ended the series of 4 matches without winning. Back after injury, Derby can rely on the experience of Curtis Davies in defense. The Rams have lost only 1 home game since August and have won 5 wins in the last 7 matches at Pride Park.
