Preview: Peterborough United V Derby County

Tomorrow the Rams face an away trip to league strugglers Peterborough United.


The Posh lie in the relegation zone in 22nd place. The Cambridgeshire side have only won one home game in the league this season that was a 3-1 win over Huddersfield on Tuesday. Perhaps confidence will be higher amongst their squad having got off the mark at home in midweek, on the other hand the Rams go into the game on an unbeaten run of 5 games.

Last year Derby failed to beat Peterborough. At London Road Nigel Clough’s side threw away a 2 goal lead to lose 3-2, Will Hughes made his senior debut as a substitute in the match. The sides met again on the final day of the season and drew 1-1, this time Will Hughes made his first senior start.

Rams winger Paul Coutts is a former Peterborough player.

On the team new front, Gareth Roberts is likely to return after playing in the under-21s’ midweek victory over Birmingham City. The full-back has missed the last three games through a hamstring injury.

Attacker Jamie Ward is set to return to the squad after recovering from an injury which forced him to be subbed in the 1-0 win at the City Ground on 30 September.

Frank Fielding is still out with injury so Adam Legzdins is set to continue between the sticks. Meanwhile, Jeff Hendrick could return to the side after missing the win over Ipswich with an ankle injury.
