The young Rams face the Premier League 2 Division 2 side in the Premier League Cup group stage clash with a chance to move to the top of the group.

RAMS’ RECENT FORM…

Darren Wassall’s side have been i-form recently with an unbeaten run dating back to the end of September and will face the reigning cup champions following fou wins on the bounce. Consecutive victories over Brighton and Hove, Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham United in Premier League 2 Division 1 has seen Derby move to second in the league.
