If Pearson does start, Rams' manager Nigel Clough will be able to name an unchanged side for the fifth consecutive game, where they will be bidding for a fourth successive home league win in the Championship.

Midfield duo Lee Croft and Lee Hendrie made their comebacks from injury in the reserves' victory over Macclesfield in midweek and could make the bench if required.
