Daniel Farke has kept faith with the same starting XI for the fourth consecutive game, sticking with the young players who have played so well in recent weeks, for tonight’s game at Derby.
City’s head coach has kept faith with the likes of Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell despite some tired moments during Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Wigan, which extended their winning run to five games.
The Canaries are looking to go an eighth game unbeaten, knowing a draw at Pride Park will be enough to back up to fifth place, after last night’s Championship games saw them drop to eighth.
Frank Lampard makes just one change to the County team which lost 1-0 at Bolton on Saturday, with Scott Malone coming in for Craig Forsyth at left-back.
The Rams are just a point and a place behind City in the table after a mixed start to life under former Chelsea and England star Lampard – with former Canaries player of the season Bradley Johnson starting for the hosts.
