Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Derby County and Watford at Pride Park.

Gianfranco Zola takes his Watford side to Pride Park on Saturday looking to build on a decent start to their Championship campaign.

John Eustace is likely to sit out yet again due to the back injury he picked up in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

Prince Buaben also misses out with a thigh problem, while Fitz Hall and Alex Geijo have come back into contention following their spell on the sidelines.

Derby Country welcome Jake Buxton back into the fold and he could take his place next to Richard Keogh in defence.

Theo Robinson may have earned himself a place in the starting lineup with his equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers last week.

Current form:

Derby: DLD
Watford: WLW

Possible lineups:

Derby: Fielding; Brayford, Roberts, Buxton, Keogh; Bryson, Coutts, Hendricks, Hughes; Robinson, Sammon

Watford: Almunia; Taylor, Doyley, Nosworthy, Yeates; Hogg, Murray , Pudil, Abdi; Iwelumo, Vydra

Sports Mole says: 2-2
