Derby boss Wayne Rooney has no fresh injury concerns following Friday night's 2-0 loss at Birmingham City.

Midfielder Jason Knight came off the bench late on against the Blues to make his first appearance of the season, after picking up an ankle injury in pre-season, and could be pushing to start against the Baggies.

Polish international winger Kamil Jozwiak will return to the squad for the game at the Hawthorns after sitting out Friday's trip to Birmingham City as a result of being in action for Poland against England in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier last Wednesday.

Defender Craig Forsyth will serve the second of a three-match ban after the Football Association deemed a challenge he made in the 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest to be an act of violent conduct, so Lee Buchanan is once again in line to start at left-back.

Republic of Ireland Under-21 international full-back Festy Ebosele has missed the last month with a knee injury and will again miss out, but he is on course to return to training later this week.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards remains a long-term absentee with an achilles injury sustained last month and he will be out of action for a significant period of time.

Polish international midfielder Krystian Bielik, who suffered an ACL knee injury in January of this year, is making good progress in his rehabilitation work but is still not yet in a position to return to full training.


Manager Wayne Rooney offered his pre-match views to RamsTV on Monday and said: “West Bromwich Albion have started the season well and we know what to expect.

“It will be a physical game and lots of balls will come into the box so we will have to defend them well, be ready for that challenge and try to create our chances and win the game from there.

“They are similar to the way Barnsley played last year, which you’d expect given the manager moved clubs. It’s about long balls, second balls and it’s going to be a battle. We will be ready.

“We have to stand up to it and if we do that then we will have chances. When we get chances, we have to take them and be more clinical.

“I think the reaction from players, not just in this game but every week, is important. We know in games where we will go one down or things happen against us, that happens in the Championship especially, so we have to respond better to situations.”

He added: “I think the way we are playing, there are going to be mistakes. We are asking players to play a bit differently to how we were previously, so we are taking more risks with the ball.

“We are still early into that, we are only six games into the season so we will get better at it but when mistakes happen, that’s part of how we are playing. I take full responsibility for that because I’m asking the players to play out from the back.”


Manager Wayne Rooney staged his pre-match news conference with the local and national media on Monday afternoon from Moor Farm Training Ground.


Kevin Friend will oversee Tuesday night's game across the Midlands.

Premier League official Friend took charge of 31 games in the 2020/21 season, producing a total of 74 yellow cards and three red cards.

He oversaw Derby's 2-0 Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie at Chorley in January of this year, when the Rams were forced to field a team of Academy players under COVID-19 protocol rules.

Friend will be assisted by Derek Eaton and Wade Smith on the lines, whilst Will Finnie has been appointed as the fourth official.


The five substitutions rule has been scrapped for the 2021/22 season, the English Football League confirmed in July.

The rule allowing clubs to make five changes, as opposed to the usual three, was brought in following football's restart in June 2020 after a break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given that games had to be condensed into a short period of time it was thought beneficial and allowed managers to make as many as five changes in three intervals during a match.

Clubs had a longer post-break between seasons this time around and so the temporary rule has been changed.

Teams will be able to name seven substitutes but only use a maximum of three.


With COVID-19 capacity restrictions lifted and EFL fixtures being played in front of full crowds once again, the temporary change in streaming rules is no longer valid.
