Burnley boss Brian Laws could hand on-loan Manchester City striker John Guidetti a debut.

The Sweden Under-21 striker, 18, has joined until January 3 after impressing Laws when scoring a hat-trick for City again the Clarets during a reserve match last season.

Laws said: "We couldn't believe how old he was. He's only a young boy but he's got a man's body and mental strength."

Meanwhile, centre-back Leon Cort has joined neighbours Preston on loan but the Clarets have no suspensions.

However, Laws has injury concerns as Danny Fox (ankle) is out and Martin Paterson (thigh) and Chris Eagles (back) are doubts.

Cameroon defender Andre Bikey is pushing for a start after recovering from a rib injury.

James Bailey will return to Derby's starting line up for the televised clash.

The midfielder had been an ever-present for the Rams this season until a sickness bug forced him to miss the home victory over Scunthorpe last weekend.

Shaun Barker could also be back for the game on Saturday evening. The centre-half served a one-match suspension against Scunthorpe, although it gave him chance to rest his troublesome knee.

"As long as he is fit, he should be straight back in. And we think he will be," said manager Nigel Clough. "It has been a good rest for him. He hasn't really trained but he might do something towards the end of the week."

Fellow defender Dean Moxey was only fit enough for the bench last weekend after he was affected by the bug that ruled out Bailey. But he is expected to return at left-back for Gareth Roberts, who must serve a one-match ban after his red card against the Iron.
