Rams Team News

Right-sider Joe Ward (heel) and Callum Elder (hernia) have almost two weeks of full training and match minutes for the Under-21s under their belts and therefore could return to the fold.

Midfielder Liam Thompson (quad) is progressing well in his recovery but is still a number of weeks away from a return to training.

Tyreece John-Jules (quad) remains out for Saturday's trip to Stevenage but is edging closer to returning to training with the squad.

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 Saturday's trip to Stevenage.

He said: "I know how good they will be at attacking set-pieces and stuff like that. I know how hard they work and they've done really well at the start of this season.

"They will want to beat us and they will want to beat Derby County. Every away game is tough but this will be a real extreme test."

Winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing sat down with RamsTV after scoring his first goal of the season against Exeter CIty on Tuesday evening and previewed another tough test on the road.

He said: "It will be a very physical game and we know that. We'll do some clips on them but we expect a very physical game, a tough game, the same as Tuesday night.

"Hopefully we've turned a bit of a corner and we can live off of that performance and take it into Saturday."
