Derby County return to Pride Park Stadium on Tuesday evening when they take on Exeter City in Sky Bet League One action (7:45pm kick-off).
The Rams are looking for a positive response following Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town, their first loss since early September, but face a Grecians team eager for a result themselves after going down 2-0 at home to Wigan Athletic.
In the lead-up to the game getting underway, dcfc.co.uk has brought together all the key information you need to know...
Rams Team News
Right-sided Joe Ward returned to full training last week after two months out with a heel injury and could come into contention.
Left-back Callum Elder is also back in full contact training after undergoing a hernia operation last month and he could also be available for selection.
Midfielder Liam Thompson (quad) is still a way off a return but is progressing well in his rehabilitation work.
Tuesday's match will also come too soon for on-loan Arsenal striker Tyreece John-Jules (quad) though a return to training isn't far away.
Defender Jake Rooney (knee) has undergone surgery on his damaged ACL and will be out of action for a lengthy period of time.
On loan Sunderland midfielder Elliot Embleton has returned to his parent club after injuring his quad in training last month and, after undergoing surgery, is to be out of action for several months.
Head Coach Paul Warne spoke to RamsTV to preview the side's return to Pride Park Stadium for the first time in almost a month on Tuesday evening.
He said: "We need a good performance and we need to start the game well.
"It won't be easy though Exeter outplayed Wigan on Saturday and had something like 30 attempts at goal but the scoreline will say different as they lost 2-0. There's a lot more to the game than just the scoreline."
Skipper Conor Hourihane previewed the midweek fixture under the floodlights when he spoke to RamsTV on Monday morning.
He said: "It's down to the players; the performances and the results. If you want to be successful in any league, you need to put in good performances and results to get the fans on board because that's ultimately how it works."
Sunny Singh Gill will take charge of the midweek game and will be assisted by Ravel Cheosiaua and Christopher Husband.
Mark Jones is on Fourth Official duties for Tuesday evening.
Gill will referee his 14th game of the season in midweek. So far, he's distributed 62 yellow cards, zero straight red cards and awarded two penalties.
There's still time to secure your seat at Pride Park for Tuesday evening's game!

A minute's applause will take place prior to kick-off in memory of former Derby County forward Francis Lee, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 79. He was a key member of Dave Mackay's 1974/75 First Division title winning squad.
The EFL has guided clubs to wear black armbands following the passing of Sir Bobby
Charlton at the weekend and he will also be remembered as part of the minute's applause. An absolute great on and off the pitch, Sir Bobby won three
Football League First Division titles, an FA Cup and a European Cup during an
illustrious career. He also famously helped inspire England to the 1966 World
Cup triumph – a year in which he was also named the Ballon D’or winner.
