Team news

Owls: Michail Antonio is pushing for a start having returned to fitness from a knee injury.

Glenn Loovens is back available for the Owls having been sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Reda Johnson (hip) and Lewis Buxton (groin) are making good progress.

Giles Coke is available after serving his three-match suspension and loan trio Gary Gardner, Leon Best and Sam Hutchinson could all feature.

Elsewhere, Jermaine Johnson will sit this game out, as he serves the third of his four-match ban.

Derby: Under manager Steve McClaren, Derby have become firm automatic promotion contenders.

The Rams picked up a hugely important 1-0 win over QPR last time out, taking them to within one point of the R’s.

Young striker Mason Bennett is an injury doubt but otherwise, Derby will come to Hillsborough with a full strength squad.
