Derby (10) v Rotherham (20)

Derby could be without Jake Buxton against Rotherham due to a hip flexor problem. Zak Whitbread (cracked rib) is also a doubt and Mark O’Brien (ankle) is injured, so Craig Forsyth may have to partner Richard Keogh in central defence with Lee Naylor coming in at left-back.

George Thorne is a long-term absentee after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury, but fellow summer signings Cyrus Christie, Leon Best and Omar Mascarell are all in contention.

Rotherham will be without new signing Frazer Richardson for their first game back in the second tier since 2005 due to a foot injury.

Another new face, Febian Brandy, is also unlikely to be involved as he battles to be match fit.
