Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Derby County host Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon as both sides look to regain some form in the Championship.

The Rams are currently in 10th place in the league table but their promotion challenge has stalled after picking up just one victory in their last six matches.

The dismissal of Gareth Roberts in Derby's 2-1 defeat to Hull City will force manager Nigel Clough into at least one change, with Jake Buxton in line to come into the side.

Struggling Wolves have failed to win in their first five matches under new manager Dean Saunders, but they have picked up three draws during that time.

However, their winless run has seen them plummet down the table and only goal difference separates them and Barnsley.

Saunders could hand a debut to defender Kaspars Gorkss, after the 31-year-old signed on loan from Reading earlier this week.
