The Rams will host Rovers over the weekend of January 26/27, meaning their Championship fixture away to Hull will have to be rearranged, after overcoming League One leaders Tranmere 5-0 at Pride Park on Saturday.

Derby drew 1-1 at home to Blackburn in the league in October and Clough is expecting another tough game.

He told the club's official website: "Blackburn, despite deciding to part company with manager Henning Berg at the end of last month, have been on a good run in the last few weeks and strung a few wins together.

"They proved when they came to Pride Park in October that they have some good players and it will be a difficult tie for us, but our form at home has been excellent this season and that will give us a great deal of confidence.

"It is a game to look forward to but in the meantime, we have got two important fixtures against Brighton and Nottingham Forest to play before we think too much about Blackburn."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
