Derby County return to Pride Park Stadium on Tuesday evening when they take on Reading in Sky Bet League One action (7:45pm kick-off).

The Rams go into the meeting with the Royals after back-to-back 3-0 victories in their last two outings against Port Vale and Bristol Rovers and will be looking to make it a hat-trick under the floodlights.

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

Team News

Midfielder Max Bird (calf) missed Saturday's 3-0 victory at Bristol Rovers and is expected to face around three weeks on the sidelines.

Fellow midfielder Tyrese Fornah (back) was also unavailable for Saturday's victory after suffering tightness in his back and Tuesday evening's fixture will likely come too soon for him.

Defender Callum Elder (ankle) has missed the last few matches but is back available for selection.

Defender Craig Forsyth (calf) is back in contention for Tuesday evening's game after his two-month spell on the sidelines.

Defender Ryan Nyambe (quad) remains out of action after being injured in the home defeat to Charlton Athletic last month.

Goalkeeper Josh Vickers (quad) is progressing well on the road to recovery but is yet to return to full training with the squad.

Striker James Collins (knee) remains out of action after being sidelined in the 3-0 victory at Exeter City in February but is stepping up his workload.

Striker Conor Washington (knee) is back on the grass but is yet to resume full training with the squad, having overcome a long-term ankle injury recently. He could re-join the squad for the first time since November later this week.

Striker Tyreece John-Jules (hamstring) suffered a severe tear in the defeat against Reading in January that will keep him out of action for the rest of the season.

Long-term absentee Jake Rooney (knee) returned to the grass for the first time last week after tearing his ACL back in September but remains a way off a return to full training.

Pre-Match Thoughts

Head Coach Paul Warne spoke to RamsTV ahead of a night under the lights on home turf.

He said: "I fully respect what Reading are doing. They are the best pressing team in the league, which cannot be underestimated. They've got goals throughout their team and they are a real threat, so we are well aware of how good they could be."

Wing-back Joe Ward spoke to RamsTV ahead of the Rams' meeting with the Royals.

He said: "We approach this one just like every other game. We're focusing on Tuesday against Reading, most importantly, going into it with positivity. We want to take the game by the scruff of the neck and try and get the win."
