Defender Nathan Byrne will return to the matchday squad after he missed Saturday's trip to Preston North End as a result serving a one-match ban for picking up five bookings so far this season.
Fellow defender Craig Forsyth is set to miss out again after also missing the trip to Deepdale, although he was ruled out of action due to illness.
Striker Sam Baldock is due to miss the visit of the Hatters after breaking his nose in Saturday's draw at Preston so youngster Jack Stretton could start up top.
Another striker, Colin Kazim-Richards, is set to feature on the bench once again after returning to the matchday squad at Preston for the first time in two months. The former Turkey international sustained an achilles injury at Peterborough United in August but needs to build up his sharpness before being considered to start.
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 afternoon and he said: “Luton are a difficult team to play against.
“They are quite direct and aggressive off the ball so we know we will have to be confident and keep control in terms of taking the ball because there will be pressure on us, so we are expecting a very difficult game.
“We have to keep playing the way we have been. We are creating good chances, good opportunities to score goals but we have to be more ruthless and take more chances and that come our way.”
FROM THE DRESSING ROOM…
Defender Phil Jagielka spoke to RamsTV on Monday after training and is looking forward to returning to action on home turf.
He said: “We are playing some good football and created a lot of chances.
“I think we have had a pretty good pre-season considering all the shenanigans off the pitch and it’s brought us all together.
“We have taken points at home and kept a few clean sheets and it’s all about momentum. It’s not nice to look at the table and see how many points we’ve got but realistically we have picked up a lot of points and we are playing better than it suggests, so we’ve got to keep on that wave.
“We can’t be too down and we have to just keep going. We are a confident team who are bottom of the league. It’s a strange concept but that side is out of our hands.
“We’ve just got to keep performing, keep doing the things that the manager and coaching staff want us to do and hopefully we will keep picking up points and climb up the table.”
Geoff Eltringham will oversee Tuesday's game at Pride Park.
Eltringham has overseen 10 games so far this season in all competitions, showing 38 yellow cards and one red in the process.
took charge of the Rams' 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield Town on the
opening day of the 2021/22 campaign, with Nathan Byrne and Louie Watson
picking up yellow cards.
Eltringham will be assisted by Jonathan Hunt and Shaun Hudson on the lines, whilst Robert Lewis has been appointed as the fourth official.
EFL SUBSTITUTE RULES…
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.
RamsTV will be providing worldwide coverage of the match to supporters.
The game will be available to watch LIVE in the United Kingdom and internationally on a pay-per-view basis with international market details available here, on RamsTV via dcfc.co.uk or through the Official Derby County App from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
