Derby County’s Under-23s are back in Premier League 2 - Division 1 action on Easter Friday when they head across the East Midlands to face Leicester City.

The Under-23s will face the Foxes at the King Power Stadium (1pm kick-off) and has brought together all the key information you will need to know ahead of the game.

Team News...

Owing to Derby's first-team facing Championship leaders Fulham at Pride Park Stadium later in the day (8pm kick-off), it is expected that Under-23s boss Pat Lyons will have a youthful side to call upon to face the Foxes.

Goalkeeper Harrison Foulkes picked up a hip problem in the early stages of the 0-0 draw against Leicester City at Moor Farm Training Ground last month and is set to miss out once more.

Defender Max Bardell (hamstring) is sidelined for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.

The Season So Far...

Derby's Under-23s have played 22 games so far this term in Premier League 2 - Division 1 and have registered four wins, three draws and 15 defeats as they fight to stay in the league.

Their last league outing saw them fall to a 5-1 loss at Brighton & Hove Albion early last week, which leaves them 11 points away from safety with four league matches left to play.

That means the Rams need to win all of their four remaining league matches and need results elsewhere to go their way to avoid relegation to Premier League 2 - Division 2.

Leicester, meanwhile, are eighth in the Premier League 2 - Division 1 table with eight wins, seven draws and seven losses from their 22 league outings so far.

Derby and Leicester met in Premier League 2 - Division 1 at Moor Farm Training Ground last month, in the first meeting between the sides this season, which ended in a 0-0 draw in a game of few clear-cut chances.
