Pride Park Stadium
Leeds United provide the opposition for the hotly-anticipated Boxing Day clash at Pride Park.
Following the 2-1 home vicroty over Bristol City, a much-needed shot in the arm, Nigel Clough's Derby succumbed to Ipswich with a controversial 0-1 defeat at Portman Road.
The last time The Rams met Leeds, Derby ran out 2-1 winners with a Ben Davies screamer the difference between the sides. In fact, the last three meeting with Simon Grayson's team have ended up as 2-1 wins for The Rams.
Here's hoping for a bit of Christmas cheer and the continuation of that run.
No quotes this week folks, just season's greeting from the Vital Derby team!
Rams midfielder Jeff Hendrick is out with suspected ligament damage, with Paul Green tipped to come back into midfield, meaning John Brayford will return to right-back.
Leading scorer Theo Robinson will be back in the squad and Nathan Tyson should also be involved.
Ward is the most creative outlet at Pride Park by some distance, at the moment.
He scored the equaliser against Leeds last season.
Andy Lonergan and Alex McCarthy are battling it out for a place in the Leeds United goal.
Ross McCormack, Andy Keogh and Luciano Becchio are in the frame for Leeds' two striking spots.
Striker McCormack has hot and cold spells in front of goal, but when he is on song, he is capable of scoring spectacular goals.
Afer a barren spell last season following his move from Cardiff City, he is flying and is one of the division's danger men.
