The Rams travel to the West Country to face relegation-threatened Bristol City.
Derek McInnes' side sit just one point above the relegation zone ahead of Coventry, but look to be in serious trouble given the Sky Blues' good recent form.
The Rams still harbour play-off aspirations, and, no matter how unlikely the prospect of a 48/49 game season it, the fact that the side has got into such a good position is terrific.
Ex-Ram Stephen Pearson is keen to face his former side on Saturday: 'I enjoyed my time at Derby and there are certainly no hard feelings.
'I don't feel I have a point to prove to anyone there but it would be nice to play well and show the Derby fans what I am capable of.
'I'm looking forward to seeing some old friends and colleagues, and catching up but, once the game starts, I will be focused on doing a job for Bristol City.'
Liam Fontaine and defender Ryan McGivern are both missing for City but Cole Skuse could make his return from injury with a broken toe.
Former Derby man Stead has scored a couple of important goals for his side in the last few weeks.
He was a threat with The Rams and despite a few hard spells in his career, he has the quality to score good goals.
Steven Davies should be ok to play after leaving the field in the first half against Crystal Palace after feeling unwell.
With 10 goals to his name, Steve has enjoyed his most productive season to date as a Derby player.
With fellow forward Theo Robinson on 11 goals, the race for the honour of top scorer is hotting up...
