The Rams travel up to Lancashire to face Burnley in a live televised clash and will be looking to beat ex-Forest man, Brian Laws´, side. Burnley are the only side in the league without a win away from home but at Turf Moor they are a different team. They will provide another stern test, but Nigel Clough´s ever-improving side have risen to so many challenges this season already.
Derby captain Robbie Savage is looking forward to the reception he will get from the Burnley fans, having played for Blackburn Rovers in his spell previous to The Rams: 'I'm sure I'll get a good reception up there, being an ex-Blackburn player. I'm sure they will be getting their boos ready!
'We're on the TV again and, hopefully, we can play with confidence again and nick something.
'It's a tough place to go and we know that but we're looking forward to it. Games can't come quick enough for us at the moment.'
Burnley Boss Brian Laws is excited by signing Man City prospect John Guidetti, who signed on loan for The Clarets from the Premier League club: 'We noticed him against our reserves when we had a very strong side out..
'He did very well and scored a hat-trick against us and ran our centre-halves all over the place.
'Since then we've been keeping very close tabs on him.
'He's only a young boy but he's got a man's body and a mental strength.
'We wanted to get him on loan to get a good close look at him and see if he could bring something else to us.'
Chris Eagles and Andre Bikey are both on the verge of comebacks for The Clarets, but former Celtic defender Danny Fox will miss out. Excellent new signing, striker John Guidetti, will go straight into the squad.
Ex-Manchester United winger Eagles has netted six goals this term. He was one of their better performers in the relegation season last time around, and has carried on where he left off with a string of impressive displays.
Dean Moxey will come in at left-back for the suspended Gareth Roberts, who was dismissed in the home victory over Scunthorpe United. Moxey was laid low with a sickness bug for the game. Shaun Barker will be available for selection having missed the last game through suspension. This should see John Brayford take up his preferred role on the right side of defence.
Captain Savage loves responding to the boos of opposition fans, and they will probably give the 36 year old an extra yard of pace under the Burnley floodlights.
