Derby County

Last updated: Tue 01 January 2019 19:40
In Brief

Derby in miraculous late win at Norwich. Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne injured. Tom Lawrence, Scott Malone and Joe Ledley doubtful.

Looking Back

Claimed an incredible 4-3 win at Norwich on Saturday with two late goals completely a stunning turnaround. Were also 2-0 down in that game.

Badly needed victory too with the Rams failing to win in three matches previously.

Looking Ahead

Frank Lampard has made various changes in recent line ups and could well rotate again. No new injury concerns have been reported though.

Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne all remain sidelined. Tom Lawrence, Scott Malone and Joe Ledley are all still doubtful.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, four draws and two defeats at home this term.

Middlesbrough

Last updated: Tue 01 January 2019 19:40
In Brief

Boro back to winning ways with Ipswich victory. Sam McQueen injured. Ryan Shotton doubtful.

Looking Back

Enjoyed a straightforward 2-0 win over bottom club Ipswich on Saturday in a win which included a goal from the spot for Jordan Hugill.

Well set despite problems with consistency which include three defeats in their last five matches.

Looking Ahead

Tony Pulis rotated his side on Saturday and could well make changes. No new injury problems have been reported though.

Rudy Gestede was back on the bench on Saturday but Sam McQueen is still out while Ryan Shotton is again a huge doubt.

Points of Interest

Decent away record with five wins, five draws and two losses on the road. Drew 1-1 at home to Derby earlier in season.
