Warm-Up + Added Time
RamsTV’s regular Facebook Live shows, presented by Owen Bradley, will be shown as normal ahead of the game.
The Warm-Up will begin on Derby County’s Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon to preview the game, while Added Time will go live on Facebook shortly after the final whistle to review the match and provide post-game analysis.
Skipper Wayne Rooney will be unavailable for selection as he must self-isolate because of coming into contact with an individual that tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
Although the 34-year-old has been tested for the virus himself, with the results coming back negative, he must self-isolate until 29th October and will miss Derby’s next three matches.
Winger Tom Lawrence is pushing for a place in the starting line-up after impressing when coming off the bench in Friday’s 1-0 home defeat to Watford, after three months out of action with a dislocated shoulder.
Polish winger Kamil Jozwiak is available for selection after not being risked against Watford after his international commitments with Poland only 48 hours beforehand.
Martyn Waghorn is back in full training after missing the season to date with a calf injury, but the game may come too soon for the striker.
Recent signing Colin Kazim-Richards joined the Rams last week and, like Waghorn, the game may come too soon for the Turkish international frontman as he builds up his sharpness.
Midfielder Louie Sibley remains out with a muscle injury, while Jordon Ibe and Krystian Bielik will increase their sharpness with appearances for Derby’s Under-23 side against Southampton on Friday as they edge towards first-team contention.
Winger Ibe, who joined Derby as a free agent from AFC Bournemouth in September, is building up his sharpness after not playing first-team football for over a year while Polish midfielder Bielik is recovering from a long-term knee injury.
Speaking to RamsTV ahead of Tuesday's game, Derby boss Phillip Cocu said: “It’s a very important situation we are in now. We need some good results; everyone knows and is aware of it.
“We know that it is a big week with Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest coming up, but we take it one game at a time.
“Slowly the team will get together, the injured players will come back and then we will have more quality and be stronger. It’s something the team are aware of.
“There are still some positives from the game against Watford that we can take into the game on Tuesday at Huddersfield.
“We know the result wasn’t good but the way we played, that’s the way we have to continue so that is the main thing we focus on.”
More pre-match comments from Derby's manager and defender Lee Buchanan can be found across dcfc.co.uk and also on RamsTV.
GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY…
Goal line technology is, once again, being used at all Sky Bet Championship matches during the 2020/21 season.
The system was introduced for the start of the 2017/18 campaign and is now entering its fourth full season in the division.
WHO’S THE MAN IN THE MIDDLE…
David Webb will be the man in the middle at the John Smith's Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Webb has taken charge of five matches in the 2020/21 campaign to date, producing 13 yellow cards and no reds.
last Derby fixture was the 4-2 Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round replay win
over Northampton Town at Pride Park Stadium in February of this year,
while his last league fixture involving the Rams was the 1-1 draw at
home to Queens Park Rangers in November 2019.
Webb will be assisted by Natalie Aspinall and Mark Jones on the lines, whilst Mark Dwyer has been appointed as the fourth official.
STAY AT HOME…
Derby County is continuing to urge supporters to stay away from stadiums when matches are played, with the UK Government advice remaining the same relating to playing behind-closed-doors at this time in the 2020/21 season.
Matches are still being played behind-closed-doors with the safety of supporters, club personnel and the frontline services remaining the principle priority at this time.
Consequently, supporters will not be permitted entry to any area of the stadium and extra security measures around the immediate area including car parks will be in place when staging matches.
Supporters are also urged to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating outside stadiums or gathering
to watch matches, as part of a new campaign message: ‘When we play, please stay away’ ahead of all EFL matches.
The club and the Derbyshire Constabulary are united in one message to fans - support the Rams and 'Watch From Home'.
