Derby County return to Sky Bet League One action this weekend following the October international break and it's a road trip to Shrewsbury Town that will get things off and underway once again (3pm kick-off).

The Rams are seven unbeaten in all competitions going into the contest and will look to pick off where they left off prior to the international break.

In the lead-up to the game getting underway, has brought together all the key information you need to know...

Rams Team News

Right-sided Joe Ward has returned to full training this 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.

Saturday'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 for the striker.

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.

Pre-Match Thoughts

Head Coach Paul Warne spoke to RamsTV to preview the return to Sky Bet League One action this weekend.

He said: "Shrewsbury haven't been conceding many goals but haven't been scoring loads, like us, either. I'd like to think that the best version of ourselves will give them a good game and hopefully we will come out on top and with three points."

Defender Craig Forsyth sat down with RamsTV and looked ahead to Saturday's trip to Shrewsbury.

He said: "There is a slight sense of disappointment even though we are seven games unbeaten because of the points we've collected, we should have collected more.

"Everyone is saying the same thing and that's that we all expect better, we should be taking chances and keeping clean-sheets so we're all on the same page."
