Derby confront Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship. Coverage has Published live on Sky Sports Football in 7pm, whilst kick-off reaches 7.45pm.
Derby are without Jayden Bogle. Bogle has not featured for over a month because of an ankle injury, however, Rams boss Phillip Cocu states the 19-year-old full-back will return to instruction “a few days or a week”.
Krystian Bielik, Tom Lawrence and Richard Keogh can be found with been on international duty with Poland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland respectively. George Evans (thigh), Lee Buchanan (hamstring) and Ikechi Anya (calf) are sidelined, however Scott Malone, Florian Jozefzoon and Duane Holmes have recovered from injuries.
After returning from international duty cardiff midfielder Leandro Bacuna will be assessed ahead of the Sky Bet Championship game. Following playing on Monday, bacuna will link up late with the Bluebirds squad at the midlands.
Together with manager Neil Warnock stating the Canada winger could miss out as a family member is seriously ill cardiff are waiting on Junior Hoillett. Jazz Richards (ft ) was ruled out after bumping with fellow defender Aden Flint in practice.
Derby lost 3-0 in Brentford before the global break, meaning Phillip Cocu’s side are currently without a win since the beginning day of this season from the Championship, although they have also crashed from the Carabao Cup to fierce rivals Nottingham Forest in that moment.
Cardiff have drawn their last two matches, meaning the side of Neil Warnock have eight points from six games so far this season. They begin the weekend 13th at the table, whereas Derby are 19th.
Derby boss Phillip Cocu:”Their manager, Neil Warnock, has a great deal of expertise, he’s had success in the Championship therefore it’ll be a difficult game. The brief history between the clubs also make it bit game for the fans and the club. That is.
“They have very an immediate game so it’ll unquestionably be a hard match, but it’s down to people. We had a fantastic break, there’s a great feeling and great work done so we are very positive about the match on Friday.”
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock:”We’ve experienced an indifferent break It’s been good for the long term injuries, Sol Bamba, Neil Etheridge, Marlon Package have all done well. Matthew Connolly has another op.
“We have had a few little knocks that have not helped us. We’re a very long way from being aware of what our staff is currently for tomorrow. Leo (Leandro) is not even flying back before [Thursday] day, it is scandalous how nations can eliminate that. Friday night after an global fracture will not help us.”
Together with his kind for Portsmouth securing him a summertime trip to Brighton in the Premier League matt Clarke was the in League One final season.
He certainly looked the part in the first sections of this year for Derby, after joining on loan from the Seagulls, and he certainly wouldn’t have expected to be warming the bench at this phase, was dropped due to their last two league games and substituted by record signing Krystian Bielik in secret defence.
Clarke was back at the side because of their Carabao Cup drubbing at Nottingham Forest, however his 3-0 reverse at Brentford may induce Phillip Cocu to once again rethink his alternatives. If the Dutchman cannot locate a spot for him, the would have lots of takers from the Championship.
Derby have lost only one of their last five home league games against Cardiff (W2 D2 L1), losing 3-4 at February 2017 beneath Steve McClaren.
Cardiff City have won two of their past 10 Championship meetings together with Derby (W2 D4 L4).
Derby have dropped their last two matches in all competitions 3-0 from Nottingham Forest and Brentford – that the Rams haven’t lost three consecutive matches by 3 targets since November 1946.
Cardiff have completed just 916 brief moves in the Championship this season – just Millwall have completed fewer (805).
Derby have won not one of their last four home games in all competitions (W0 D2 L2), last enduring a longer run under Nigel Pearson in August and September 2016 (six games).
Cardiff’s Josh Murphy has been included in four of their last eight league goals (1 goal, 3 assists).
It’s not looking good for Phillip and Derby Cocu. It’s five with no win and he got stuck to his group after they had been thrashed by Brentford before the global break.
Cardiff have experienced more of a mixed beginning and Neil Warnock seems to be lacking a little spark. There is a bit of recent history in this fixture and Warnock is not one to immediately forget anything! I fancy them to make a triumph.
David Prutton forecasts: 1-2 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
