£2.7m-rated star in: Derby County’s likely starting XI to face Sheffield Wednesday tonight



Derby County saw themselves slip out of the automatic promotion places over the weekend, with Gary Rowett’s side seeing Aston Villa leapfrog them in the Sky Bet Championship table.  

The Rams were held to a 1-1 draw by Norwich City at the weekend, which opened the door for Villa to move into pole position in the race to secure the second automatic promotion place in the Championship.

However, Rowett’s side have an opportunity to pile the pressure back on this evening when they face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, with the Rams swiftly back in Championship action.

Tonight’s opponents are struggling, and haven’t made the push for promotion many were expecting them to this season, unlike the Rams.

Here at FLW, we assess Rowett’s options and take a look at the starting XI he could select at Hillsborough this evening, with changes seemingly on the agenda according to the Pride Park boss
