Ticket Information: Derby County Away

21 November 2019
The Scot welcomes back Ben Pearson after suspension and will hope to have a number of other players back from injury for the clash at Pride Park. 
 
Club captain Tom Clarke (knee) and Josh Harrop (hamstring) are also back in training, with other players having got through a behind closed doors game at Burnley on Tuesday afternoon to be ready for selection.
 
Alan Browne and Sean Maguire both returned unscathed from international duty with Ireland, with Browne having started both games. Louis Moult is the only definitive absentee, as he continues his rehabilitation after injuring his ACL at Swansea City back in August.
For Phillip Cocu, the Rams are yet to issue an update on Matt Clarke, but it does not look positive for the centre half, who picked up what looked like a serious injury in the clash with Nottingham Forest last time out.

How To Follow The Game: Derby County Away

21 November 2019
Scott Malone missed the clash with Forest, but he is expected to be fit enough to return to face the Lilywhites on Saturday. Tom Huddlestone, meanwhile, has been suffering with hamstring issues and must also be considered a doubt.
 
Tom Lawrence cut short his international spell away with Wales due to illness, but this is not expected to cause him any difficulties for the game, whilst long-term absentees Craig Forsyth and Ikechi Anya, are both nearing first team returns.
