The Rams vs. The Hornets

Pride Park Stadium

Preview: Derby County vs. Watford

The Rams take on Watford as Nigel Clough´s side look to bounce back from their 2-0 away loss to Millwall. Previous to the revers in London, The Rams had gone undefeated in their last six games and they will be keen to start another run. Watford are one of the Championship´s top away teams; only QPR and Cardiff City have picked up more points on the road this team.

Vital Quotes:

Midfielder James Bailey is keen to get back to winning ways and recognises the threat that Watford carries: 'Watford are going well, so they'll be no walkover, not that any game is in this division,' said Bailey.

'Every game is as hard as each other.

'We've got to show every team respect and if we don't, we will get punished.

'There's no point talking and saying this and that, it's up to us to work hard, get the fans behind us and get the three points.'

Malky Mackay has confirmed that his dangerous strike duo will start against The Rams on Saturday: 'Marvin has been training today, Danny has also trained but his was a lighter session,' Mackay confirmed yesterday afternoon.

'So Marvin should be available for selection. It was a lighter session for Danny so he will be with the physios again today and will be back in with us tomorrow, so he should also be ok.'

The Rams Team News:

Derby will be without central defender Russell Anderson for the Pride Park clash as he has picked up a slight muscle strain. Stephen Pearson has been out for three matches but may earn a bench role. Luke Moore looks likely to start following the extention of his lone from West Brom.

Player to watch: Alberto Bueno

Bueno will be keen to get on the scoresheet again at Pride Park, a ground where he likes to score. He has three goals on home soil this season.

The Hornets Team News:

Strikers Danny Graham and Marvin Sordell have shaken off minor knocks to face The Rams. Hornets full-back Lee Hodson may miss out with an injury to his back.

Player to watch: Danny Graham/Marvin Sordell

The strikeforce of Graham and Sordell has pocketed twelve league goals this season, six being netted each. They are potent at this level and Graham has come on since his poor loan spell with The Rams many years ago.
