Derby County return to Pride Park Stadium for their first of back-to-back home games when they take on Bristol City Tuesday evening, kick-off: 7.45pm.
Phillip Cocu’s side are undefeated through the opening three Sky Bet Championship fixture with one win and two draws. Here, dcfc.co.uk has gathered everything you need to know ahead of the clash with Lee Johnson’s side.
The game will come too soon for Jayden Bogle, who continues to recover from an ankle injury picked up against Swansea City in the last home game.
Duane Holmes has moved closer to a return from injury that kept him out of pre-season as he got minutes under his belt for Derby County Under-23s on Monday night.
WHAT THE BOSS HAD TO SAY…
Speaking to RamsTV ahead of the clash, Cocu said: “It is a team who play in different styles of football,” he said. “They are sometimes 4-3-3, sometimes 5-3-2, so we have to be prepared.
“We have to focus on our own game but be prepared for their qualities. We played them in pre-season so we know them a little bit better than other teams.
“However, we know that none of the games are easy so we have to show the best and put in a good performance with our home fans behind the team, we will do everything to get a good result.”
