Derby County

Last updated: Sat 05 January 2019 07:57
In Brief

Derby could only draw with Middlesbrough. Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne injured. Harry Wilson ruled out. Tom Lawrence, Scott Malone and Joe Ledley doubtful.

Looking Back

Could only draw 1-1 at home to Middlesbrough on Tuesday, a game in which Harry Wilson scored his 10th goal of the campaign.

Now just one win in five matches and have lost their way somewhat recently.

Defender Alex Pearce has left the club to join Millwall on loan.

Looking Ahead

Wilson has been ruled out after he limped off on Tuesday. Tom Lawrence, Scott Malone and Joe Ledley are also still big worries.

Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne remain definite absentees.

Points of Interest

Have a good home league record with six wins, five draws and two defeats.

Southampton

Last updated: Sat 05 January 2019 09:22
In Brief

Held Chelsea to away 0:0 draw at start of 2019. Long FA Cup run not a priority. Yoshida on international duty. Bertrand and Obafemi ruled out. Ings, Romeu and Gabbiadini major doubts. Targett passed fit. Hojbjerg suspended.

Looking Back

Southampton showed passionate defending on visit to Chelsea and earned uplifting 0:0 draw at start of 2019.

Definitely perform with much better organisation under Hasenhuttl, but gaffer revealed that Board doesn’t have any expectations about FA Cup, with all the focus on survival in the league.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hasenhuttl likely to use many youngsters and fringe players in this one. Bertrand and Obafemi ruled out. Ings, Romeu and Gabbiadini serious doubts. At least Targett passed fit.

Yoshida away with Japan for the Asian Cup, plus Hojbjerg suspended.

Points of Interest

Played well in League Cup earlier this season, 3 matches against fellow Premier League sides, just 1 goal conceded in them and eventually beaten on penalties.
