Sports Mole previews the action from the Championship showdown between Derby County and Huddersfield Town.

Derby County entertain Huddersfield Town in the Championship this weekend with just two points separating the teams in the table.

Nigel Clough's side, who start the game in 13th, will be looking to put last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers behind them and move towards the business end of the league.

The 16th-placed visitors go into this one on a high following a string of impressive results, including that 1-0 win against Crystal Palace in midweek.

Derby have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game, with striker Theo Robinson expected to play a part after returning from illness.

Huddersfield are expected to name an unchanged side from the Palace victory, with the in-form James Vaughan leading the attack.
