With nearly a full squad available for selection, City manager Aidy Boothroyd has an interesting selection choice to make ahead of tomorrow's televised game with the Rams at 12.15 at the Ricoh.
After a poor first 65 minutes last week at Watford, when any of the outfield players could have been substituted, it will be interesting to see if Aron Gunnarsson and Clive Platt make the starting eleven.
Boothroyd was full of praise for the duo after their part in clawing back a two goal deficit against the Hornets.
He told the Coventry Telegraph: "I've got to think long and hard about what team I pick."
Derby are waiting on late fitness tests for Rob Hulse and Chris Porter.
