Full back Jayden Bogle is hoping Derby County can contine their unbeaten run going into the upcoming international break.
The Rams have remained unbeaten since the last break, securing one win and three draws in their four games so far.
Tomorrow, Luton Town are the visitors to Pride Park Stadium and a positive result will extend the club’s run without defeat to five games.
“Unbeaten runs, clean sheets, those sorts of things, they mean a lot to the team and can turn out to be crucial points,” he told RamsTV.
“If we can go unbeaten in this little run then it will be massive going into the international break.”
However, Bogle knows the Rams face a tough encounter against Luton Town who are recently promoted to the division.
They finished as champions of Sky Bet League One last season, earning 94 points and have started their Championship campaign positively.
The Hatters have won three of their games so far, including two wins on the road against Barnsley and Blackburn Rovers so the Rams need to be wary of their threats.
“They will be physical, direct and I think we have played against that a few times this season already, so we know what to expect,” he said. “It will be a tough game.
“On set pieces they will be looking to put the ball in the box, and we have to defend it well. Set pieces are a massive part of the game.
“If you do let your standards slip then it can cost you and I think it did on Tuesday night. There are only so many videos you can watch.
“I think it just comes down to being in the moment and being switched on and wanting to go and defend the goal.
“Ultimately everyone wants to defend the goal, but switching off for a split second, that can define if it will be a goal or won’t be.
“If we keep focused and do the right things then we have a great chance of winning the game.”
Derby recorded their first home victory of the season last weekend against Birmingham City.
Goals from Chris Martin, Martyn Waghorn and Jamie Paterson secured the three points at Pride Park Stadium, with the Rams 3-2 winners, so there is a chance to make it back-to-back wins at home tomorrow afternoon.
“A home win is massive,” he commented. “The support was great against Birmingham, we needed it after a tough week for us.
“With that result it really boosted the fans and the club overall so hopefully more of the same tomorrow.”
