    Derby County Team News:

    • There are no fresh injury concerns for Derby County, with Jayden Bogle remaining their only injury absentee ahead of this match. The 19-year-old suffered an ankle injury during the 0-0 draw against Swansea City 10 days ago.
    • Other than him, manager Phillip  Cocu has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

    Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

    • Still, Phillip Cocu is expected to make changes to his playing 11 from the last game, considering there have only been two days in between this fixture and the last game.
    • However, Cocu is not known for making wholesale changes and it won’t be a surprise if the 48-year-old ends up naming very much the same XI.

    Derby County Probable XI:

    Roos (GK), Lowe, Bielik, Keogh, Malone, Knight, Huddlestone, Jozefzoon, Dowell, Lawrence, Waghorn

    Bristol City FC Team News:

    • Jay Dasilva remains a long-term injury for Bristol City and will not feature here. The 21-year-old is expected to be on the sidelines for up to five months with a tibia fracture.
    • Pedro Pereria, the 21-year-old defender who arrived from Benfica on a season-long loan, is expected to be fit after missing the last weekend’s action due to a knock.

    Possible ins or outs of this game:

    • Head coach Lee Johnson preferred 5-3-2 over 4-4-2 in the last two games and the difference was there to see as City recorded their first win of the season last weekend. Expect Johnson to continue with the same tactics.

    Bristol City Probable XI:

    Bentley, Hunt, Moore, Kalas, Wright, Rowe, Nagy, Palmer, Brownhill, Weimann, Afobe

    Potential Game Changers:

    • Benik Afobe
    • Adam Nagy
    • Martyn Waghorn
    • Tom Lawrence

    Likely to score:

    • For Derby County: Martyn Waghorn, Florian Jozefzoon, Tom Lawrence
    • For Bristol City: Benik Afobe, Andreas Weimann

    Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

    Martyn Waghorn: The 29-year-old scored twice in the last game against Stoke City, including a 70th-minute match-saving penalty.

    He is the main man for Derby County and more often than not, he delivers.

    Last Season:

    • Games: 44
    • Goals: 14
    • Assists: 04

    Florian Jozefzoon: Was in and out of the team last season due to an injury, but he is fit now and is an integral part of the team.

    The 28-year-old Dutchman can be devastating on the right-wing, with his pace and dribbling certainly his assets.

    Last Season:

    • Games: 28
    • Goals: 02
    • Assists: 01

    Strength and attributes:

    • Good Dribbling skills
    • Short Passes
    • Free-kicks

    Tom Lawrence: The versatile Welshman is a talented player who can set the tempo of the game with his passing. The 25-year-old has added goals to his repertoire as well.

    This season:

    • Games: 03
    • Goals: 02

    Lawrence last season:

    • Games: 40
    • Goals: 07
    • Assists: 02

    Benik Afobe: Stoke City’s £12 signing has arrived at Bristol City on a season-long loan. And the 26-year-old is feeling at home already, as quoted by him after the match against Queens Park Rangers.

    An old school striker who loves to play on the shoulder of the defenders, and good in the air. With his confidence back, he can help Bristol to mount a serious challenge for the promotion.

    This season:

    • Games: 02
    • Goals: 01

    Andreas Weimann: The former Aston Villa star is a fan favorite at Bristol City. His overall influence on the team is in both the direction, with his pressing and an added advantage.

    Last season:

    • Games: 44
    • Goals: 10
    • Assists: 05

    This Season:

    • Games: 03
    • Goals: 01
    • Assists: 01

    Suggested combination:

    BRI vs DER Dream11 potential winner:

    Being the hosts, Derby County will start the match as slight favorites.
