Derby County

Last updated: Tue 04 February 2020 08:34
In Brief

Superb win over Stoke. No new injuries. Max Lowe still banned.

Looking Back

Derby were excellent as they demolished Stoke 4-0 last Friday.

Wayne Rooney has been the recent hero, finding his feet at Derby with goals in each of his last two games.

Looking Ahead

Derby appear to be taking the cup seriously especially with limited hopes of any league success so should take this match seriously.

Max Lowe remains suspended while there are no new injury issues but Ikechi Anya, Krystian Bielik, George Evans and Tom Huddlestone all remain sidelined.

Points of Interest

Excellent home record in the league with nine wins, five draws and two defeats.

Northampton Town

Last updated: Tue 04 February 2020 09:48
In Brief

Scott Wharton back in contention; Jordan Turnbull and Michael Harriman doubtful; trio ineligible; quartet sidelined.

Looking Back

Northampton Town stretched their unbeaten league run to seven matches after beating Macclesfield Town 1-0 at the Moss Rose.

Manager Keith Curle made four changes to his starting line-up with Chris Lines handed a recall in the middle of the park.

Lloyd Jones, Mark Marshall and Callum Morton were all handed their full league debuts following their recent arrival.

Looking Ahead

Curle is boosted by the return of Scott Wharton for the replay at Pride Park. He is set for a recall after serving a three-match ban.

Jordan Turnbull (abductor muscle) and Michael Harriman will be assessed. Lloyd Jones, Mark Marshall and Callum Morton are ineligible.

Alan McCormack (knee), James Olayinka (ankle), Shaun McWilliams (knee) and Harry Smith (ankle) remain sidelined.

Points of Interest

Northampton Town haven't won any of the previous eleven meetings between the two sides.
