The Rams will be looking to add to an impressive run of home form, when Alex Neil’s Preston North End visit Pride Park.
Derby currently occupy 16th place in the Championship whilst Preston sit in the automatic promotion spots.
Preston come into the game with an impressive start to the season, finding themselves in second place as well as the league’s highest scoring team with 31 goals.
Alex Neil has Preston setup, typically, in a 4-2-3-1. They tend to enjoy slightly more possession than the opposition and have a 1.6xG compared to a 0.97xG against.
The visitors could end the day on top of the Championship table if they gain all three points and West Brom fail to win
Derby are unbeaten against Preston in 12 head to head fixtures, picking up a win and a draw against the visitors last season. The first of which was a 2-0 win at home, with thanks to Mason Mount and Richard Keogh both netting.
The second game was at Deepdale in February, which ended with neither team able to break the deadlock in a 0-0 draw. The Rams appeared lucky to take a point in front of the Sky Sports cameras, as they looked unconvincing.
The Rams could be without Tom Lawrence, who missed out in Wales’ Euro qualifier against Hungary through illness but might be involved with the Rams.
Preston are set to have Ben Pearson back, who missed their last match against Huddersfield due to racking up five cards so far this season.
