Mick McCarthy's Ipswich reignited their chances of finishing in the playoffs by overcoming fellow top-half side Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday in front of a jam-packed Amex Stadium.
Consistency has been the problem for Ipswich of late, with Saturday's encouraging victory preceded by three losses in the previous five games, and a solid end to the season will be needed if they are to squeeze into the top six.
McCarthy added Manchester City youngster Alex Henshall on loan earlier today and the left winger could be on the bench but is unlikely to start.
West Bromwich Albion loanee George Thorne got his first start for the Rams and could continue as John Eustace serves the last game of his two-match ban.
The reverse fixture between these two was an incredible night at Pride Park last October as Derby came back from 4-1 behind at half time to earn a point.
Possible starting lineups
Ipswich: Gerken; Chambers, Berra, Smith, Cresswell; Anderson, Hyam, Wordsworth, Hunt; Williams; Murphy
Derby: Grant; Wisdom, Keogh, Buxton, Forsyth; Thorne, Hendrick, Bryson; Bamford, Martin, Russell
Sports Mole says: 1-2
