/r/Championship's Championship club by club season preview - part 1!

Part 2 here - Part 3 here - Part 4 here

On Friday at 8pm UK time, Reading and Derby County will kick off the 127th season of the English second division - also known as the Championship! 24 clubs will compete for 3 promotion spots to the Premier league (2 via automatic promotion and 1 via playoffs) and to avoid the 3 relegation spots to the third tier a.k.a League One.

Its looking like a really tight and competitive season. The league is absolutely full of ambitious player and managerial talent - the more time goes by the more it looks like a Premier League 2. If you want a competitive league with proper English football, that also has the spice of skilful players and forward thinking managers, it really is the place to go.

This is guide written by the fans who have come together on /Championship - an absolutely huge thanks to them. Do check out the sub, we try to keep it a good place to discuss the EFL, away from the rancid gloryhunting shithole that is /soccer (just kidding - I like this place). Lots going on, including a score predictor thread which is running all season.

This guide is in table order with the PL demoted sides first. Only 5 clubs today (because the Swansea one is a fucking novel and I can't fit any more in), the rest will be submitted tomorrow and Friday. Do bare in mind that not all the transfer news will be up to date as these guides were largely written a week ago. Point out to me if there are any clear errors with formatting or spelling.

How to watch in the UK: Live rights are owned by Sky Sports. They are upping the number of televised matches this season. Reading v Derby on Friday is televised. The weekly highlights show previously on Channel 5 is moving to Quest TV, which apparently is on Freeview.
How to watch abroad: Depends, but in most territories, the iFollow Service is available, which is £110 to watch all a single club's matches. Bargain. I think the clubs that aren't on iFollow have their own similar streaming services.
Check out club Youtube channels - quite a few of them post extended highlights now with their own commentary, including Derby, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford and more. (You may need VPN to watch if you're abroad.)

Swansea City by RafiakaMacakaDirk and my_knob_is_gr8

Location: Swansea, Wales
Nickname: Swans, The Jacks
Major honours: Football League Cup (2013), Championship Play-off Winner (2011), League One Winners (1925, 1949, 2008)
17/18 finishing postion: 18th (Premier League)
Transfermarkt squad value: €115.5 mil NOTE: This number is as of July 22nd, when we still have Mawson (€15 mil), A. Ayew (€15 mil), Bony (€10 mil), Clucas (€8 mil) and Fernandez (€8 mil), who are all pretty much expected to be sold, or loaned out, before the season starts. Without all of these players except Bony (who's injured for a while so it makes it unlikely he'll be sold soon), the squad value would be around €70 mil.
Manager: Graham Potter joined the Swans on 11th June 2018. In 2010, he became head coach of Östersund, who were in the fourth tier of Swedish football. 5 years later, he got the club promoted into the Swedish top flight and in 2017, they won Svenska Cupen which qualified them for the Europa League where they managed to get through the group stage. He’s been applauded for what he did at Östersund and the way he managed to build the club up from nothing. The year after his success in the Europa league he signed a 3 year contract with Swansea.
Potter is well respected by The Swans and after a few years of poor managerial and financial decisions his appointment is seen as a step in the right direction to bringing us back to our old ways of being a well-run club. Potter has been recognised for his "progressive" and "unconventional" coaching methods. At Östersund, he encouraged his players and staff to engage in community activities, such as performing in theatre and music productions which was designed to take them out of their comfort zone. Potter describes his style of football on the pitch as "tactically flexible, attacking, and possession-based". At Östersund, he deployed a flexible 3–5–2 formation centred on ball possession.
Best player(s)/ talisman:With many of our best players being rumoured with a move away what good players that remain at the start of the season is yet to be seen.
Alfie Mawson is probably our standout player. He’s been amazing for us since we got him and was a bargain at about £3m. He’s great in the air and is just an all round tank. Keeping him will be a huge boost for us and should be solid in the championship.
Federico "El Pajaro" Fernandez has also been strong at the back with Alfie. The pair played with each other for the majority of last season and together became a solid unit. We will most likely sell him to reduce wages though.
Jordan Ayew put in a great shift last season and was our top goal scorer. His work rate was immense and was able to drop back and defend when needed. He’s fast, able to beat a man and a decent finisher. Sadly all these players are transfer targets for other clubs and might not even be here at the start of the season. If we can keep a lot of our players we should have a decent season but who knows who'll be left by the end of the window…
Rising star: Swansea’s U23 had a great season last year and with Potter wanting a young and fresh squad, a handful have moved up into the first team.
Our standout youngster, Oliver McBurnie, joined Barnsley on loan in January last season where he went on to win a Championship player of the month award after 6 goals in 8 games and went on to win Barnsley’s Player of the year award. While only 22, he’s struggled to break into our first team but will most likely be our main striker for the coming season. Be on the lookout for his long legs, miniature shinpads and ridiculous sock length! LEGS LEGS LEGS!!!
Connor Roberts performed well at RB last season and adapted quickly to the premier league where he battled Kyle Naughton to be in the starting line up and did great when given the chance. Decent at going forward and professional at the back. Hopefully potter puts him ahead of Naughton.
What happened last season?: What Happened last season?: After our great escape the season before and with Paul Clement at the helm there was optimism that the 17/18 season could be our turning point where we start rebuilding 'The Swansea Way". How wrong we were.
After a disastrous transfer window where we sold Sigurdsson and never replaced him and started panic buying the week before the transfer window closed we were left an obvious hole in our team. We had no creativity in midfield and no one could kick the ball into the box to save their life. And just to rub it in further Renato Sanches turned out to be more disappointing than Bob Bradley. With the team sitting bottom of the table Clement was sacked in late December.
Then along came the wise talking Carlos Carvalhal who managed to rebuild the confidence the team had lost. Our results took a turn for the good, beating Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham consecutively at home. He pulled us out of the relegation zone and things were looking good. However, the good times were quickly followed by the bad times. Our form turned and we didn’t win a single one of our last 9 matches. We were quickly relegated after pitifully losing to both Southampton and Stoke in our last 2 games of the season.
Highlights (Or lowlights):
The pass by Renato Sanches that summed up his and our season
Swansea City 3-1 Arsenal
Summer transfer business (so far): At the end of last season, it was clear we needed several transfers, both in and out. However, this would all depend on the manager we got.
Yan Dhanda (Free, Liverpool): A 19 year-old Midfielder, Yan Dhanda left Liverpool this summer and joined the Swans in a free, before we even hired Graham Potter. At one time one of the most promosing youngsters in Liverpool's Academy, injuries slowed down his progress, and ultimately made him fall behind other players. Citing lack of first-team playing time, Dhanda decided to join us this summer in hopes of getting regular playing time in the senior squad. Through 3 pre-season games, Dhanda has been one of the brighest and most impressive players in the squad, even scoring a game-winning goal and smashing a penalty in a shootout against Genoa. With our current injuries and shenanigans involved in our midfield, Dhanda has a good chance of becoming a starter and hopefully guide our midfield during the season.
Jordi Govea (Free, Real Madrid): Another 19 year-old from Ecuador, Jordi was the first signing under Potter. Not much can be said about the lad, but this is what Real Madrid had as his bio:
Jordi is an Ecuadorian defender who possess three key qualities for a player in his position: he's skilful, is able to go past a player and has a good shot on him. He's left footed and is able to send in good crosses on the run.
With Martin Olsson currently as our starting LB, and Kyle Naughton as the backup, the hope is that Jordi can develop on our U-23 squad and hopefully move up to the senior squad in coming years. Also the only man I've seen do a medical while wearing jeans (https://twitter.com/SwansOfficial/status/1015251916132057089)
Joel Asoro (€2 mil., Sunderland): Yet another 19 year-old, a Swedish winger who has represented his country in the younger levels, he was Potter's first senior signing. With world-class speed, and some impressive skills, Asoro was able to score 3 goals and get 2 assists last season in 26 apperances for Sunderland. While these numbers may seem a bit disappointing, many of these games were sub appearances on a very dysfunctional team. Along with Dhanda, Asoro has been one of the most impressive players during preseason, constantly beating his man with either speed or skills, and whipping in good balls to Legs. At the current rate, Asoro appears to have a good chance of starting on the right wing spot, with Nathan Dyer and Luciano Narsingh backing him up.
Predicted starting XI: NOTE: This is gonna be assuming Mawson, A. Ayew, Clucas, and Fernandez are all sold by the start of the season. If by some reason they end up staying, they are pretty much guaranteed to start. Based on the pre-season games so far, a lineup looking like this would be plausible, with Rodon most likely to be replaced by a CB (possibly Scott McKenna) when we buy one. Our second unit is looking something like this.
Best case scenario: Graham Potter is able to motivate and make sure our senior players (Fer, Carroll, etc.) stay fit, along with our youngsters being able to make an impact as expected, and also we retain Mawson, Fernandez, and Clucas, we can finish in the top 2 and get promoted automatically.
Worst case scenario: Our worst case scenario, and something many of us fear of happening, consists of primarily 3 things. 1. Graham Potter isn't given enough time to build an identity with our squad and is sacked by the midway point of the season by the greedy, dumb American owners. . 2. We end up not replacing the players we sold properly like last summer, therefore having a squad with holes everywhere and no chemistry. 3. Our youngsters such as Asoro, McBurnie, Dhanda and company don't pan out and progress at all, thefore becoming mediocre players. This would all culminate in us looking like Sunderland, and making relegation a probability.
Prediction: Realistically I see us selling Mawson and company in the last days before the season starts and not replacing them properly until later on. Because of this, as well as our current injuries with Fer and Clucas, I can see us initially struggling to build an identity but over time, we will start playing like Potter wants us and finishing the season strongly.
8th place, missing the play-offs by 4 points
What will happen to your closest rivals?: The scum that is known as Cardiff City will break the record for lowest points ever accumulated in a Premier League season, getting 5 points all from draws, and will therefore get relegated with 17 games to spare.

West Bromwich Albion by Joelwba

Location: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, West Midlands
Nickname: The Baggies, The Throstles
Major honours: 1x League title, 1x League Cup, 5x FA Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 20th in Premier League (relegated)
Transfermarkt squad value: £101.16m
Manager: Darren Moore or Big Dave as he's known to Albion fans. A club icon as a player in the early 2000s, he returned to look after our U23 squad before being promoted to assistant manager by Alan Pardew in January. Following the end of Pardew's horrific reign, Moore took temporary charge with Albion facing inevitable relegation. He led us to wins over Newcastle, Spurs, Man Utd and a draw with Liverpool, somehow taking our futile battle for survival to the final week of the season. Following this he earned the head coach role permanently. Moore is loved among the Albion faithful, largely due to his reputation as a player here. He heavily favours a 4-4-2 formation and at the back end of last season, tended to soak up pressure and play on the counter attack. It will be interesting to see how his approach differs in a league where we are one of the favourites, not fighting to survive (hopefully)
Best player(s)/ talisman: It's an interesting situation for Albion currently. There are plenty of Premier League quality players still in the squad. A lot depends on if they are picked off before the deadline shuts. Chris Brunt is a club stalwart and likely to be reappointed as captain. He is adored by the fans and in my opinion will be an incredible asset in the championship. His set pieces alone will bring 10+ goals to the side. Kieran Gibbs is a high quality player who appears to be set to stay and should make a big difference. Jay Rodriguez, Craig Dawson, Salomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli should all make a big difference in this division IF they stay. In all honesty I expect to lose a few of the above. Sam Johnstone appears to be an astute signing to replace the outgoing Ben Foster.
Rising star: Sam Field he's one of our own! He looked completely at home against some of the top Premier League sides last campaign. A box-to-box midfielder, he's full of energy and looks so comfortable on the ball. I expect him to be a major part of our side this season, having just signed a new long-term deal.
Kyle Edwards is an exciting attacking midfielder who has been impressing in pre-season. He may have a part to play following a loan spell at Exeter last campaign.
Jonathon Leko looked like a potential world-beater when he first came through a couple of years back. A lightning quick winger full of tricks. A loan spell at Bristol City and limited appearances later he seems to be losing his way. Will be an interesting one to watch.
Finally, the enigma that is Olly Burke. After signing with us last summer for £15m, he failed to impress any of the four managers we had over the season. He looks exciting when he comes on, without any end product so far, and was unfairly blamed for a loss at West Ham by Alan 'Coward' Pardew. We all know the talent he's got. Hopefully we can see it this season.
What happened last season?: Let's not talk about it... We finally escaped the stranglehold of Tony Pulis, only to opt for the human joke that is Alan Pardew and duly hurtled towards relegation. Four of our players stole a taxi and then played (and lost) the following weekend.
Pardew was sacked about 3 months too late, and Moore took over, restoring pride with some notable wins over Man Utd and Spurs.
This season we also lost the great Cyrille Regis, and the outpouring of emotion and the coming together of the club during the weeks after his passing was something special.
Summer transfer business (so far): We started by releasing Claudio Yacob, Boaz Myhill and Gareth McAuley. Yacob and McAuley will be greatly missed but it is perhaps the right time for them to go.
Jonny Evans departed for Leicester for a cut-price £3m, Ben Foster left for Watford and James McClean has departed for Stoke City.
Sam Johnstone has been bought in to replace Foster, with Jonathon Bond arriving as backup. Kyle Bartley has joined from Swansea City and it appears that Harvey Barnes will soon be arriving on loan from Leicester.
Finally, James Morrison is currently out of contract but still with the club. His future is uncertain.
I am very happy with Johnstone and Bartley. It has been a quiet window for Albion so far but that is largely a good thing. The squad is packed with Premier League talent and the window is more about keeping hold of them.
There is major interest in Dawson and Rondon, along with interest in Rodriguez, Hegazi and Chadli. If any of the above go, then we would need to replace. Otherwise I would be happy with another striker and another CB.
It is also worth mentioning that every player in the Albion side suffered a 50% wage cut upon relegation which means that we are financially sound despite relegation, but may lead to more big names leaving.
Predicted starting XI: This is my best attempt. It will undoubtedly be 4-4-2. We may see Nyom in at right back and perhaps Barry in for Field.
Obviously about half of this side could leave, so we shall see.
Best case scenario: The bulk of the side remains and the quality in the side shines through as we breeze to automatic promotion.
Worst case scenario: The better players leave or do not put the effort in. Moore cannot transfer his great start into his first full season in management. We become embroiled in a relegation battle
Prediction: It will be somewhere in the middle. I'd like to think we'll go up automatically but I think play-offs are more likely. 6th
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Villa won't go down but will settle into mid-table, despite the recent takeover.
I think Wolves will do well in the PL, although I don't know how long Nuno will last before a big club comes in.

Stoke City by mrmariomaster

Location: Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
Nickname: The Potters
Stadium: bet365 Stadium, 30,089 seats
Major honours: 1972 League Cup
17/18 finishing position: 19th, Premier League
Squad value: £127.8 million
Manager: Gary Rowett signed from Derby in May. His honest attitude has brought lots of optimism to fans, who are looking forward to an overhaul of the Club. His style of play seems to change based on the squad he has available.
Best Player: Joe Allen was vital to the Club last season, giving us hope that we would avoid relegation. His massive new contract signed this summer shows how loyal and committed to the Club he is, and will be a vital player this season.
Rising star: Tom Edwards is a local lad who has won the Under 18 Player of the Year award twice in the Club. In the latter parts of last season he played some good first team football.
What happened last season: A pathetic attempt at a season that had been coming for a while under Mark Hughes. Paul Lambert was appointed in January, but a win rate of just 2 in 15 matches wasn’t enough for him to keep his job and miss out on the million pound bonus offered to him.
Transfer business so far: So far this has been a decent transfer window. Peter Etebo had an amazing World Cup for Nigeria and Benik Afobe looks really promising. Adam Federici has also been appointed to replace Lee Grant. Xherdan Shaqiri has left along with a few players like Stephen Ireland and Glen Johnson who will not be missed. Badou Ndiaye also looks to be on his way out, but it looks like Jack Butland will stay with us, which is massive. Perhaps most surprising are the new contracts signed by our 2 best players last season, Joe Allen and Moritz Bauer.
Predicted Line up: Here is our predicted squad. I’m not sure what formation we will have. EDIT: This is a new version, complete with our rumoured new signings and in the right formation.
Best case scenario: Stoke will finish top with an all-time Championship points record.
Worst case scenario: A mediocre start to the season will see Rowett sacked and Stoke with a disappointing mid-table finish.
Prediction: I think with our squad and our new manager, we will finish 1st.
What will happen to our closest rivals? Port Vale will be relegated to the Vanarama National League.

Aston Villa by trueschoolalumni

Location: Villa Park, Trinity Rd, Birmingham B6 6HE
Nickname: The Villans, The Villa, Prince William's Club, David "Twat" Cameron's Second Club.
Major honours: 7 First Division wins, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, 1 European Cup, 1 European Super Cup, 1 Intertoto Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 4th
Transfermarkt squad value: £67.77m and dropping fast
Manager: Steve Bruce (for now). Former Man Utd playing legend who's been a fixture of English football for decades. He joined Villa in 2016 after successful runs at Hull, Sunderland (yes they were good once) and Birmingham City. A bit of a promotion specialist, he's taken Championship clubs up to the Premier League 4 times in the past and just missed out last season, losing 1-0 to Fulham in the Playoff Final. Tactically, he's fairly old school who prefers 4-4-2 or a 4-1-4-1, usually involving a big man up top. Fun fact: while managing Huddersfield in 1999 he wrote three novels, "Striker!", "Sweeper!" and "Defender!", which focus on main character Steve Barnes, a football manager. Barnes solves crime and takes on terrorists, and the books have become prized rarities. The Guardian's Football Weekly podcast managed to get a copy and read out some of the copy - suitably awful.
Best player(s)/ talisman: There's only one Jack Grealish. A Villa boy through and through, he's been with the club since 2001 (aged 6), and made his way into the first team in the 2013-14 season. He's been the centre of controversy a few times, most notably getting on the beers and passing out on a Tenerife street. Playing as a number 10, his quick feet and dribbling skills provide a number of goals and assists, as well as fouls. He probably went down a bit too easily when first in the Premier League, but time in the gym has noticeably toughened him up and he's a much more solid player as a result. One of the better players in the Championship, and due to Villa's abject finances, a transfer target for the likes of Leicester.
Rising star: Keinan Davis could possibly be it, potentially Andre Green and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy as well.
What happened last season?: Have you ever walked into a casino, spotted the roulette table and popped £10,000 on red? It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off. You've doubled your money if you win, but look like a right git if you lose. Villa figured this was a good way to approach 2017-18: spend millions on players, get in lots of loans, gamble everything on achieving promotion. After a so-so start, Bruce got the team playing well, stringing together a number of wins and moving through the playoff spots. Unfortunately they ran into a few teams playing out of their skin - champions Wolves ran away with the league and boasted a squad that included several Champions League players. Neil Warnock's Cardiff couldn't stop winning and grabbed the second automatic promotion. In the playoff final Villa came up against a Ryan Sessegnon-led Fulham and were just pipped at the post 1-0.
Summer transfer business (so far): It's one-way traffic, due to absolutely abysmal finances. Loan spells for Lewis Grabban, Robert Snodgrass, Josh Onomah and Sam Johnstone have all ended, which is almost the spine of the team (Johnstone in particular - he was arguably the best keeper in the Championship and personally bagged a number of wins). Plus clubs are circling to pick off whatever assets we have left (eg. Jack Grealish, James Chester). With no prospect of anyone new coming in, it looks like the youth academy will be getting a lot more game time.
Predicted starting XI: Possibly this, but half these players could be gone before the first match.
Best case scenario: Mid-table anonymity would have to be best case - Villa are a mess and could go down this time around.
Worst case scenario: Our finances are the real issue - they are dire. Villa need to find £9 million this month to avoid going into administration. Owner "Dr." Tony Xia is a billionaire, apparently, but tax bills went unpaid and the question remains if he's able to support the club as generously as he has in the past. Administration, points deductions and potentially relegation to League One are all real possibilities right now. It's not looking good.
Prediction: Due to financial irregularities in the 23 clubs above us, Villa will get into the Champions League and take out the likes of Atletico, Bayern and Real Madrid on the way to our second European Cup. "Taylor, Green, prepared to venture down the left. There's a good ball played in for Jack Grealish. Oh, it must be and it is! It's Keinan Davis!"
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Unfortunately the Scum managed to avoid League One in the final rounds of the season. Here's hoping they go one better. Agbonlahor to re-sign for one game: the Derby. And score the winner, again.

Middlesbrough by OneSmallHuman

Location: The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough
Founded: 1876
Nickname: The Boro (Or just Boro)
Major honours: The League cup 2003-2004 season
17/18 finishing position: 5th
Transfermarkt squad value: 79.34m
Manager: Tony Pulis became manager of us in late December 2017, replacing the sacked Garry Monk after a pretty lacklustre few months of the campaign (despite where our league position was). Pulis is known in England for being the man that is never relegated when in charge of someone in the top flight. We are all aware of Tony Pulis' style of football. You start by having a strong and massive defence and maximise your use of set pieces to gain an advantage. Pulis is a lover of all set piece plays, whether that is crossing the ball in from a corner or free kick, or launching a ball into the box from a throw in, they're all in his arsenal of weapons. 'Pulisball' as it is pretty much known. Pulis has achieved promotion from the championship once before with Stoke, and I hope he achieves it again with us this season
Best player(s)/ rising star: I mean, where else do I begin. Adama Traore. Arguably the best player in the championship on his day and is one of the most frightening dribblers in English football, maybe even world football. The winger is known for his speed and dribbling ability although is usually criticised for his lack of end product. Before last season I would've agreed, however 5 goals and 10 assists, with all but 2 assists coming before Pulis' arrival show the progression of the Spanish winger.
As for other members of the squad, Ben Gibson, the prodigal son. Boro through and through he's progressed into a commanding centre half with the ability to play out from the back thanks to Karanka. He gained attention and emerged as one of the few given credit after our disappointing premier league campaign but was only the subject of one bid upon our relegation, from now manager Tony Pulis. It remains to be seen whether he'll be here come the first game of the season, but I hope he will be.
As for future stars, Dael Fry, already has played 2 championship campaigns for us and looks as assured as a veteran of the game. Another centre half produced by our academy and he is being played in cdm this pre-season by Pulis, to add to his versatility. Hopefully a standout season for him, especially if Gibson does end up leaving. Finally, yes, he does always look as confused as images of him show.
What happened last season?: Well, the first half of the season was tragic under Monk. We played really poor football at times and looked like we hadn't defended a day in our lives. There was also no consistency in the team, we'd win one game then lose the next. A key theme under both managers however, was our inability to beat those around us in the table. After Pulis' appointment the results picked up and it ended with us finishing 5th in the table. We ultimately lost in the playoff semi finals to Aston Villa but honestly, we didn't think we'd even be in the top half around Christmas.
Summer transfer business (so far): Just the three deals to talk about so far. We've acquired Paddy McNair from Sunderland who looks like a decent player. He's been utilised in right back and midfield during pre-season so it looks like they'll be his positions for the season. I imagine he'll play alongside Clayts and Howson in a midfield three.
Aden Flint was signed from Bristol City and I think I'm in the minority when I say I don't like how much we paid for him. Obviously the man is a Pulis player but I'm a bit unsure about his defensive ability. That being said he's looked strong during pre-season and I'm sure Pulis will get the best out of him. Fabio departed our club for Nantes so we'll need more full back cover.
As for the rest of the window, I expect Gibson to leave but will be delighted if he doesn't. One of our strikers will also leave and Braithwaite should follow after his decent World Cup performances. We'll probably bring in a striker and a winger and hopefully hold onto Adama. That'd be a successful window in my eyes.
Predicted starting XI: My best guess The only other guess I could make is that Gibson might leave and then Ayala would start, but he's injured at this point in time. Britt might play over Gestede too if Pulis is feeling fancy.
Best case scenario: It has to be top of the pile right? It's not out of the question to imagine us up there and if everything clicks then we've got a chance. A defence that scores more than some teams' strikers, Adama channelling his inner Messi and finding consistency, Rudy/Britt/Bamford scoring for fun. It could be carnage.
Worst case scenario: I can't see us finishing outside the playoffs, if we did then that would be gut-wrenching. But if we did then that would most certainly be the worst. Realistically, it'd be losing in the playoffs... again, and if it were in the final again then god help me. Although saying this, now losing Bamford and maybe Traore will be a worst case scenario in itself, definitely if they're not replaced.
Prediction: Have to be confident, although it always kills me. 1st or 2nd. Tony Pulis and his nice white trainers carry us to the promise land. That being said, we never do it the easy way.
Best Match of Last Season Sorry Leeds fans, but it had to be. "Hattrick Bamford" as our Twitter account tweeted, 3-0 against Leeds with Adama running the show. Leeds clearly found some positive from the game as they're set to sign him off us. This was the sign of what we should've done more last season. Showed what Paddy could've been too if given an even more extended period in Striker by himself. Oh well.
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Who even are our closest rivals in this league? We're in geographical purgatory. Can't say Sunderland anymore so what? Leeds? Bielsa either turns them into the well oiled machine they hope for or he succumbs to the old Leeds ways and is sacked by December. As for the Mackems, probably promoted from League 1.

'CHELSEA LOOK LIKE THEY ARE MOVING'

Chelsea are finally starting to get going in this summer's transfer window, according to Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.
"For me, Courtois is one of the best," the former Man Utd captain told Sky Sports' Premier League launch show.
"I absolutely love him. I know people say I’m critical of 'keepers, but I also love quite a few keepers and I absolutely love Courtois.
"He’s [Kepa] got big shoes to fill and it’s a big price. Pep Guardiola said in an interview with us that Chelsea are going to do quite a lot of business in the next few days and obviously the market talks and agents talk.
"Chelsea look like they are moving. They have been a little slow in the transfer market and a little bit less obvious in the transfer market over the last few years than they have been previously. It looks like they are making a move again."

'KEPA A BIG GAMBLE'

Chelsea's potential world-record capture of Bilbao 'keeper Kepa is a big risk, according to former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason.
"It is a big gamble," he told SSN. "It is going to be very difficult to replace Courtois because for me he is in the top three to five 'keepers in the world. He has proven that over a number of years now.
"I do not see many 'keepers who can come in and replace that. So to now go and sign someone for an extortionate amount of money that is not proven to be one of the so-called best in the world is a big risk."

CHELSEA EYE UP COURTOIS REPLACEMENTS

Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga is a goalkeeper target for Chelsea, Sky Sports News understands.
With the Blues resigned to losing Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid before the deadline after he missed training for a second day today, the club are focusing their attentions on securing his replacement.
Stoke’s Jack Butland remains their first choice because of the nature of the deal, according to Sky sources, which is expected to cost them £30m if they can act quickly - but that price will rise the close to the deadline it becomes.
Arrizabalaga would cost Chelsea much more, and a fee of around £70m would make him the most expensive goalkeeper in the world - eclipsing Alisson only weeks after the Brazilian joined Liverpool.
Maurizio Sarri would also like to go for Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak, but his £89m release clause is a stumbling block.

SWANSEA WANT YEOVIL DEFENDER

The Debate returned to Sky Sports last night as the build-up to the new Premier League season continued. And, speaking on the show, Jamie Redknapp said Liverpool must be considered as genuine title contenders after signing wisely to address their problems from previous seasons.

HAS ANYONE SEEN COURTOIS?

Chelsea are facing a race against time to find a replacement for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who seems intent on forcing through a move to Real Madrid.
The Belgium international failed to report back to Chelsea training on Monday as scheduled, where head coach Maurizio Sarri was expecting to hold face-to-face talks with Courtois about his future.
Over the weekend Courtois' agent revealed that his client wants to move to Madrid to be closer to his family.
Courtois has one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and is valued by Real at £32m, but Sky Sports News understands that Chelsea will not resume talks with the European champions until they find a suitable replacement.

NEV SEES FUNNY SIDE

Gary Neville has had his say on Twitter early this morning - and he certainly sees the funny side of Barcelona's bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
He's posted a laughing emoji - while responding to a tweet from Sky Sports Premier League detailing the offer.

UNITED REJECT POGBA SWAP OFFER

There’s only one place to start this morning and that concerns Barcelona reported interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
Sky Italy report that United have rejected a cash plus player offer for the France international from the La Liga champions.
It's understood Barca offered £45m plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes in exchange for Pogba. That deal has been rejected.
However, it's worth remembering that Spanish clubs are not subject to the early closure of the window like English clubs - and they can buy players until August 31.
Sky Sports News understand Barca are serious about bringing Pogba to the Nou Camp.

Pre-Match Thread - Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough

Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough
Competition: Championship
Kick-off: Tuesday 10th April 7.45pm
Team News:
Boro:
Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis has a clean bill of health as he heads into a potentially key clash for his promotion-chasing side. Only long-term absentee Rudy Gestede is missing as the sixth-placed Teessiders attempt to cement their place in the play-off berths.
Full-back Fabio da Silva, who has been out of action since December with a thigh injury, returned to the bench against Nottingham Forest on Saturday and will hope to make it on to the pitch this time around. Pulis made just one change for the 2-0 win at the weekend with Ryan Shotton replacing Martin Cranie, and he is likely to keep faith with the bulk of the team once more.
Sheffield United :
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has no fresh injury problems ahead of Tuesday night's Sky Bet Championship showdown with Middlesbrough.
Defender Richard Stearman, who missed Saturday's 3-2 derby defeat at Barnsley with a hamstring problem, will sit out once again, but could return for Millwall's visit to Bramall Lane at the weekend.

Midfielder Mark Duffy was used as a second-half substitute at Oakwell after two games on the sidelines with a groin strain and will hope to figure once again. However, keeper Jamal Blackman completes his three-match ban with Simon Moore again in line to deputise.

Predictions:
David Prutton (Sky Sports) predicts: 1-1
Sheffield United need a win here or you feel it will be curtains on their play-off hopes. There are four points between them and Middlesbrough in sixth, and a draw or defeat would probably leave them with too much ground to make up.
Boro will be aware, however, that if they are beaten then it will provide a real lift to the chasing pack. The Blades will absolutely go for it because they have to, Score draw.
Stats
Sheffield United have scored just two goals in their last seven matches against Middlesbrough in all competitions (W1 D2 L4).
Middlesbrough haven't visited Bramall Lane since April 2011, winning 2-1 in a Championship clash thanks to a late Marvin Emnes winner.
The Blades are unbeaten in five league games at Bramall Lane, with the last two ending level (W3).
The Boro have lost just one of their last nine Championship games (W5 D3), with that defeat coming at home to league leaders Wolves (1-2).
Billy Sharp's 12 goals have been worth 17 points to his team this season, more than any other player in the Championship.
Tony Pulis' last league meeting with Sheffield United was in December 2007 - his Stoke side won 3-0 at Bramall Lane in the Championship.

[Match Preview] Nottingham Forest v Derby County

Match Information - Nottingham Forest v Derby County
SkyBet Championship 2015/16
  • Date: 06/11/2015
  • Venue: The City Ground
  • Kick-off: 19:30 GMT
Previous Fixtures
Derby 1 - 0 QPR
Preston 1 - 0 Nottingham Forest
Match Preview
It's derby time, and both teams could not be heading in any differently. Derby County top the Championship's form table having won 6 and drawn 2 from their last 8 games, including a big win last time out against QPR. Meanwhile, Forest sit much further down with only 3 points to their name in the same amount of games.
However, last time the two met a similar story could be said - and it was Forest who ran out 2-1 winners at the iPro Stadium courtesy of Ben Osborn's late winner. Derby will require a different tale this time round if they are to keep their promotion charge going.
Their hopes will be dented somewhat by the news that Craig Forsyth will be sitting out the season with the same injury that felled Player of the Season Will Hughes on the opening day. Stephen Warnock will be available after a concussion scare came back all clear, but his fitness has been questioned in the past.
Forest have midfielders Henri Lansbury and David Vaughan back available after serving suspensions, however, they will be without Mancienne and Tesche.
The game will be broadcast live on SkySports as usual, with the Brian Clough Trophy at stake once again - with both set of fans wanting a win to break or maintain a run.
Pazzyboi's Prediction: Forest are in absolutely awful form, and you can tell watching them play why. But it was exactly the same when we last played and we ended up losing. We need a much improved performance, and I think we'll see it.
The starting lineup I would play is:
 Carson Christie Shackell Keogh Warnock Thorne Hendrick Johnson Weimann Russell Martin 
Really unfortunate to not have Forsyth for this game, or any other this season. Warnock almost has to play now, or maybe Baird will switch sides. I wouldn't bring Ince right back in straight away, he's coming back off injury and Weimann has scored 2 in 2 so it seems harsh to bring him out, and Russell has been solid most the season.
Normally I would like to rotate some players given we've played 2 games already this week, but so have Forest, and this is a derby game and we need to play our absolute best to make sure we get all 3 points this time. I could see some fresh legs coming on early into the second half though.
I honestly think we have to, and will, avenge last season's loss and beat them on their home turf. They have been a shambles but have rarely conceded more than one goal a game in the process. Therefore, it's hard to predict that they'll suddenly take 3's and 4's against them - and I can see them being really up for it...
However, I do think we'll pick up a 2-1 away win at the City Ground!

Preview
The international break has come and gone and after two weeks of waiting the first East Midlands derby of the season between Derby County and Nottingham Forest is almost upon us. It could not come at a more appropriate time, as the Brian Clough trophy will be contested at the City Ground just days before the 10 year anniversary of the legendary outspoken manager's death.
Last term both fixtures resulted in the losing club firing their respective managers in Nigel Clough and Billy Davies, but both Steve McClaren and Stuart Pearce will surely keep their positions this time round - along with the pride and 3 points should their sides be victorious Sunday afternoon.
The two last met back in March when Derby thumped an injury hit Forest side 5-0 in front of a rapturous home crowd to mark a historic win as the Rams marched into the play-offs. However, the reverse fixture last year would spell the end for Nigel Clough as the Rams slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the City Ground - their only loss against Forest in the last 5 meetings.
Forest come into the game full of confidence as they are undefeated so far this season, winning 6 of their opening 7 games in the process. New signings Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio have hit the ground running, both with 4 goals in all competitions already, and new manager Stuart Pearce has galvanized a side that felt lost at times last season. Indeed, Forest enter the fixture as slight favourites despite being embarrassed 5-0 just months ago.
Craig Bryson, who netted a historic hat-trick in the last meeting between the Rams and the Reds, has yet to hit the heights of last season but will surely be a key player if Derby are to take three points away from the City Ground. With Jeff Hendrick injured, Bryson will most likely be partnered by young star Will Hughes and will look to make plenty of runs into the box, the likes of which saw him net regularly last campaign.
Derby have had a relatively mediocre start to the season given the high expectations placed on themselves by the fans and management, but if there is a time to rediscover some of last year's form it is at the trip to Nottingham tomorrow afternoon. No team talk required for both sets of players, they should know what this fixture means to all involve, and more importantly, with both teams pushing for promotion this term - 3 points would be huge for either side.
A win for Forest would cement their place atop the SkyBet Championship table, giving them bragging rights and the Brian Clough trophy for the ten year anniversary of his passing. While, a win for Derby could catapult them into the play-off positions, and give their momentum a shot in the arm along with the pleasure of inflicting Forest's first defeat of the season.
Drama is guaranteed, the atmosphere will be electric, and the tribute by both sets of fans on the 10 minute mark for the late great Brian Clough will be emotional. Even the day before, this one is far too close to call.

Preview
On the back of a heated 1-1 draw at the City Ground with fierce rivals Nottingham Forest, Derby County must go again Wednesday night in another difficult away trip to Blackburn Rovers. Ewood Park has proved unfruitful for the Rams in recent times, with their last win at the ground coming back in 2001, and Steve McClaren's side have yet to replicate any of last season's form thus far.
Rovers are in the middle of a patchy phase to say the least, with their six fixtures alternating wins and losses, one week winning 3 - 1 only to lose their next fixture by the same scoreline. Manager Gary Bowyer will be looking to chain together his first consecutive wins of the season with a good performance over a Derby County side yet to make their mark on the new season.
Last time out loanee Ryan Shotton replaced a strong performer in Cyrus Christie at right back, but it is expected that Christie be reinstated Wednesday evening having not featured at the weekend.
Commanding centre back Jake Buxton will not feature tomorrow however, having picked up a red card against Nottingham Forest and it's relevant suspension. Zak Whitbread is therefore expected to slot in alongside captain Richard Keogh as the Rams look to keep their first league clean sheet in a month.
Blackburn will fancy their chances having won three and drawn three of their last seven fixtures with Derby, and one man to fire them to the points could well be hitman Jordan Rhodes who has three to his name so far this season. However, a draw could well be on the cards if last season's pair of 1-1 draws are anything to go by.
From this midweek fixture both managers will be looking to establish some form of consistency, and build up some momentum heading into another busy schedule in the SkyBet Championship. Two clubs with Premier League ambitions surely need to start racking up the points soon or risk being left some way behind the pack.
Team News
Derby County
  • Jamie Ward may make his return following an injury with Northern Ireland
  • Jake Buxton is suspended so will see no part of the action
  • Jeff Hendrick remains injured for around another 4 weeks with a dislocated shoulder
  • With many just having played at the weekend, the likes of Omar Mascarell and Leon Best could be inline for rare starts
  • Jordon Ibe came off the bench last time out, could he make his first start in a Derby County shirt?
Blackburn Rovers
  • Gary Bowyer has no fresh injury worries, so will likely pick a largely unchanged side with perhaps a few fresh faces
  • David Dunn is out with a minor niggle, while Tommy Spurr and Jason Lowe are also injured

Preview
Two teams of contrasting form enter their most anticipated fixture of the season tomorrow ahead of the 3pm kick-offs. Derby County have notched up 4 wins in a row, including 3 in the league, whilst fierce rivals Nottingham Forest are without a win since November, and find themselves mid-table.
Derby County claimed a hard-fought victory over promotion rivals Ipswich Town last weekend, and sit inside the automatic promotion places. Things are incredibly tight up there and only another win is likely to see them remain so, and what better time than against the old enemy Nottingham Forest.
Forest, meanwhile, had started the season on fire under new management in Stuart Pearce, and were in fact top of the league the last time the two played at the City Ground back in September. Forest took the lead through a Britt Assombalonga strike, but had to settle for a point on that occasion after an equaliser was bundled home by the Rams.
After that game there was a strong feeling of optimism in the Nottingham Forest camp, still unbeaten in the league, and a 1 - 1 draw was a vast improvement on the 5 - 0 annihilation that still haunts the mind from the back half of the previous campaign. That came on Derby soil, as tomorrow's fixture will, with a rampant Derby charging towards the playoffs.
This time Derby do not have playoff ambitions in their sights, but rather the top spot of the SkyBet Championship table. A win over the Reds would see them atop the table, whilst also retaining the Brian Clough Trophy, a poignant symbol of the bragging rights that are to follow.
However, form goes out the window in this type of game, and every soul inside the stadium will be motivated and ready to compete in the occasion. A win for Nottingham Forest win would come at a time when a win is desperately needed, with the added spice of denting their old rivals' promotion dreams, and avenging the 5 - 0 from last year.
Derby, of course, remain the favourites at home and against a side struggling for form and confidence. Steve McClaren's side also have an incredible record against Forest at home, losing only once since 1994.
The atmosphere will be incredible as always, and both sets of fans and players know that a win would provide a huge boost for their respective seasons. I will be doing a Match Thread starting at approximately midday at /DerbyCounty ! Come join in the excitement!
Team News
Derby County
  • Jordon Ibe has been recalled back to his parent club Liverpool, and so will be unable to take part in this important clash at the iPro Stadium.
  • New signing Raul Albentosa is unlikely to feature, given he arrived the day before the game, but such an important signing, especially fending off interest from top division clubs, will only be good for the feeling in the dressing room.
  • Fellow new signings Stephen Warnock, and Isak Ssewankambo are not expected to feature, having also only recently arrived.
  • Experienced midfielder John Eustace is out through a knee operation, so will not feature.
Nottingham Forest
  • Top scorer Britt Assombalonga is facing a race for fitness after a hip injury, and boss Stuart Pearce will be desperate to have him on the pitch - though has admitted it is unlikely he will be available.
  • Andy Reid has also been suggested to be losing a battle with fitness, and as such is also unlikely to be available.
  • Henri Lansbury is available for selection, but there are further injuries to Michael Mancienne, Matty Fryatt.
  • Dexter Blackstock and Danny Fox are unlikely to start but may find a position on the bench.

Another Saturday, another fixture in the SkyBet Championship as Derby County prepare for their third home fixture in a row before the much anticipated away fixture at Nottingham Forest in a week's time. Travelling to the iPro Stadium is an Ipswich Town side that are four games without a win, having not secured a win away from home yet this season in any competition.
Derby come off the back of two home victories, including a 5-1 thrashing of Fulham in their last league fixture, and so can be expected to be full of confidence. However, last time the two faced off in the SkyBet Championship as the Rams were flying towards their Play-Off spot, if was the Tractor Boys who were victorious at Portman Road.
It was this fixture last season that Steve McClaren first saw his Derby side in action, watching the first half from the stands, and seeing his side slump into half time 4-1 down. He saw the Rams at rock bottom, but after making changes at half time and giving the side a much needed team talk, Derby went on to rescue a dramatic 4-4 draw with a late Craig Bryson equaliser. Since then the Rams have gone from strength to strength, and count themselves unlucky to not be playing Premier League football at present.
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy guided his side to a 9th place finish last term, but after an opening day victory he has found the start to the new football league season tough. His Ipswich side came unstuck at league one side Crawley Town in the Captial One Cup, and have since lost twice by a single goal as well as rescuing their only other league point with a very late equaliser away at Birmingham.
Even still, Steve McClaren has labeled the fixture as his side's "biggest challenge this week" after having already secured two home victories against Fulham and Charlton. There will be no underestimating an Ipswich side that has the potential to overturn any Championship side on their day, as evidenced by their 2-1 victory back in March.
Jamie Ward had his best game in a Derby shirt for some time last weekend against Fulham, and should return to the starting XI after being rested midweek. John Eustace and Jake Buxton are two others that can be expected to return following a midweek rest. Meanwhile, for Ipswich Town loanee Connor Sammon is ineligible to take part in this fixture, due to Derby County being his parent club.
The Rams are odds on favourite with the bookmakers to take all three points tomorrow afternoon, however a tough contest can be expected with Mick McCarthy expected to make his side incredibly hard to beat and will look to pick Derby off on the counter.
Team News
Derby County
  • John Eustace, Jamie Ward and Jake Buxton are all expected to return to the starting line-up after their midweek rest
  • The Rams have just signed Liverpool's Jordon Ibe on a season long loan, so he will be available to make his debut against Ipswich
  • Will Hughes and Simon Dawkins made an instant impact against Fulham last week, and are likely to feature once more tomorrow
  • Ivan Calero came off the bench to net the winner mid week against Charlton, so will be looking to gather more minutes on Saturday
  • Ryan Shotton also impressed in the Capital One Cup fixture, so Steve McClaren will have a tough choice on his hands between Shotton and regular right back Cyrus Christie

Preview
Two teams of contrasting form enter their most anticipated fixture of the season tomorrow ahead of the 3pm kick-offs. Derby County have notched up 4 wins in a row, including 3 in the league, whilst fierce rivals Nottingham Forest are without a win since November, and find themselves mid-table.
Derby County claimed a hard-fought victory over promotion rivals Ipswich Town last weekend, and sit inside the automatic promotion places. Things are incredibly tight up there and only another win is likely to see them remain so, and what better time than against the old enemy Nottingham Forest.
Forest, meanwhile, had started the season on fire under new management in Stuart Pearce, and were in fact top of the league the last time the two played at the City Ground back in September. Forest took the lead through a Britt Assombalonga strike, but had to settle for a point on that occasion after an equaliser was bundled home by the Rams.
After that game there was a strong feeling of optimism in the Nottingham Forest camp, still unbeaten in the league, and a 1 - 1 draw was a vast improvement on the 5 - 0 annihilation that still haunts the mind from the back half of the previous campaign. That came on Derby soil, as tomorrow's fixture will, with a rampant Derby charging towards the playoffs.
This time Derby do not have playoff ambitions in their sights, but rather the top spot of the SkyBet Championship table. A win over the Reds would see them atop the table, whilst also retaining the Brian Clough Trophy, a poignant symbol of the bragging rights that are to follow.
However, form goes out the window in this type of game, and every soul inside the stadium will be motivated and ready to compete in the occasion. A win for Nottingham Forest win would come at a time when a win is desperately needed, with the added spice of denting their old rivals' promotion dreams, and avenging the 5 - 0 from last year.
Derby, of course, remain the favourites at home and against a side struggling for form and confidence. Steve McClaren's side also have an incredible record against Forest at home, losing only once since 1994.
The atmosphere will be incredible as always, and both sets of fans and players know that a win would provide a huge boost for their respective seasons. I will be doing a Match Thread starting at approximately midday at /DerbyCounty ! Come join in the excitement!
Team News
Derby County
  • Jordon Ibe has been recalled back to his parent club Liverpool, and so will be unable to take part in this important clash at the iPro Stadium.
  • New signing Raul Albentosa is unlikely to feature, given he arrived the day before the game, but such an important signing, especially fending off interest from top division clubs, will only be good for the feeling in the dressing room.
  • Fellow new signings Stephen Warnock, and Isak Ssewankambo are not expected to feature, having also only recently arrived.
  • Experienced midfielder John Eustace is out through a knee operation, so will not feature.
Nottingham Forest
  • Top scorer Britt Assombalonga is facing a race for fitness after a hip injury, and boss Stuart Pearce will be desperate to have him on the pitch - though has admitted it is unlikely he will be available.
  • Andy Reid has also been suggested to be losing a battle with fitness, and as such is also unlikely to be available.
  • Henri Lansbury is available for selection, but there are further injuries to Michael Mancienne, Matty Fryatt.
  • Dexter Blackstock and Danny Fox are unlikely to start but may find a position on the bench.

Preview
The international break has come and gone and after two weeks of waiting the first East Midlands derby of the season between Derby County and Nottingham Forest is almost upon us. It could not come at a more appropriate time, as the Brian Clough trophy will be contested at the City Ground just days before the 10 year anniversary of the legendary outspoken manager's death.
Last term both fixtures resulted in the losing club firing their respective managers in Nigel Clough and Billy Davies, but both Steve McClaren and Stuart Pearce will surely keep their positions this time round - along with the pride and 3 points should their sides be victorious Sunday afternoon.
The two last met back in March when Derby thumped an injury hit Forest side 5-0 in front of a rapturous home crowd to mark a historic win as the Rams marched into the play-offs. However, the reverse fixture last year would spell the end for Nigel Clough as the Rams slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the City Ground - their only loss against Forest in the last 5 meetings.
Forest come into the game full of confidence as they are undefeated so far this season, winning 6 of their opening 7 games in the process. New signings Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio have hit the ground running, both with 4 goals in all competitions already, and new manager Stuart Pearce has galvanized a side that felt lost at times last season. Indeed, Forest enter the fixture as slight favourites despite being embarrassed 5-0 just months ago.
Craig Bryson, who netted a historic hat-trick in the last meeting between the Rams and the Reds, has yet to hit the heights of last season but will surely be a key player if Derby are to take three points away from the City Ground. With Jeff Hendrick injured, Bryson will most likely be partnered by young star Will Hughes and will look to make plenty of runs into the box, the likes of which saw him net regularly last campaign.
Derby have had a relatively mediocre start to the season given the high expectations placed on themselves by the fans and management, but if there is a time to rediscover some of last year's form it is at the trip to Nottingham tomorrow afternoon. No team talk required for both sets of players, they should know what this fixture means to all involve, and more importantly, with both teams pushing for promotion this term - 3 points would be huge for either side.
A win for Forest would cement their place atop the SkyBet Championship table, giving them bragging rights and the Brian Clough trophy for the ten year anniversary of his passing. While, a win for Derby could catapult them into the play-off positions, and give their momentum a shot in the arm along with the pleasure of inflicting Forest's first defeat of the season.
Drama is guaranteed, the atmosphere will be electric, and the tribute by both sets of fans on the 10 minute mark for the late great Brian Clough will be emotional. Even the day before, this one is far too close to call.
Team News
Derby County
  • Jamie Ward picked up a hamstring problem, suffered during the international break, so Steve McClaren and his team will have to wait on the results of a scan to assess his fitness
  • Jake Buxton is now close to full fitness following a hip flexor problem last month, following his 2 weeks off
  • Jeff Hendrick remains injured for around another 4 weeks with a dislocated shoulder, suffered against Ipswich in the Rams' last fixture
  • Will Hughes is likely to be recalled to the midfield in his more suited advanced role alongside Bryson, with Eustace likely to be used in an Anchor role
  • New loanee Jordon Ibe has yet to feature for Derby, we could see him make his debut in this East Midlands Derby
  • Fellow loanees Ryan Shotton and Omar Mascarell are also pushing for places in the Derby County starting line-up
Nottingham Forest
  • Henri Lansbury and Jamaal Jascelles could return to the starting line-up following knee injuries before the international break
  • David Vaughn and Kelvin Wilson have also made progress from injuries, and will hope to be involved in some form on Sunday
  • Stuart Pearce will surely employ new signings Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio, both of whom have hit the ground running
  • Matty Fryatt will be searching for a recall to the Reds' starting line-up after being dropped to the bench in their last fixture
