Tomasz Cywka is expected to be restored to Derby's starting line-up. The Polish forward is likely to get the nod to replace Conor Doyle, who is away with the United States Under-20 squad for a training camp in Florida.
Former Celtic midfielder Stephen Pearson will play no part against the Blue Square Bet Premier promotion-hopefuls due to a knee problem.
Rams boss Nigel Clough must decide whether to keep the same back four that kept a clean sheet against Millwall last time out or recall Dean Leacock and move Paul Green back into midfield.
Centre-back Jake Buxton returns to the squad after a lengthy injury lay-off, but is expected to be on the bench.
Left-back Gareth Roberts is also back in contention after recovering from a calf problem and will compete with Dean Moxey for a place in the starting line-up.
The match will kick off at 8pm.
