Manager Phillip Cocu has no new injury worries as Derby attempt to extend an eight-game unbeaten home run.

Krystian Bielik has an ongoing hip issue but is fit and fellow midfielders Ikechi Anya (calf) and Tom Huddlestone (hamstring) are close to returning.

Sheffield Wednesday are without striker Fernando Forestieri (knee) and goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is still a doubt because of a shoulder problem.

Full-back Liam Palmer is available after serving a three-match ban.

Match facts

Derby County are unbeaten in their previous 11 home matches against Sheffield Wednesday in all competitions (W7 D4 L0).

Sheffield Wednesday have won two of their past 20 league matches against the Rams (W2 D7 L11).

Derby have lost five of their previous nine league games (W3 D1), though they haven't lost back-to-back Championship matches since a run of three in March.

Sheffield Wednesday are looking to secure three consecutive Championship victories for the first time since September 2018.

The Rams are the only Championship side yet to score a headed goal this season.

The Owls have the oldest average starting XI in the Championship this season, with their combined average age coming in at 28 years 166 days.

Garry Monk issues Sheffield Wednesday challenge ahead of away double-header with Derby County and Nottingham Forest

Manager Garry Monk believes the Owls have a perfect opportunity to lay down a marker this week.

Buoyed after Saturday's superb come-from-behind win over Brentford, Wednesday are braced for an away double-header with Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

Tonight, Monk's men face the Rams at Pride Park Stadium before rounding of a busy week with a trip to promotion rivals Forest this weekend.

Monk, who has no new injury concerns, wants his side to maintain their upward momentum.

"We wanted to start the week off well and we managed to do that with the comeback on Saturday," said Monk.

"We have got a chance to really try and put a marker down this week.

"We know it will not be easy. We are playing against two difficult sides.

"We need to try and keep that belief we are showing and momentum going.

"We are going to fight as hard as we can for the three points."

He said: "When our intensity levels and attitude is at its best, we are capable of winning and beating any team in this league. That is what we have tried to drill into the players and slowly but surely I think they have taken that more on board."

Derby have slipped out of the promotion race and into the bottom half of the Championship after an alarming slump in form. Philip Cocu’s team have won only two of their last seven matches.
