Derby County will be looking to build on some impressive recent showings in the Championship, when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.
The Rams have won their last two league matches under the management of Wayne Rooney, and will be in a confident mood after beating relegation-threatened rivals Wycombe Wanderers in their last match.
That win over the Chairboys means that Derby are sat 17th in the Championship table heading into this one, and they’ll be well-aware of the threat that Watford will pose them on Friday evening.
Wayne Rooney has named his starting XI for the game, with the Rams boss making five changes to the team that started against Wycombe in midweek.

George Edmundson is one of the players to come into the starting XI, in what is his first start for Derby, after signing on loan from Rangers late into the January transfer window.
Plenty of Derby County supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on Rooney’s latest team selection for the game at Vicarage Road.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
I know jozwiak may need a rest but he’s always in the 11 for me, if we win fair play to wayne, but i’m not a fan of that 11

jesus, dropping jozwiak and not waghorn, clueless.

Waghorn has had more impact than Jozwiak of late and Menai did not look entirely comfortable at Wycombe. This IMO is the best available line up to play the formation

Whoever is picked, people are going to moan. Trust Rooney in his selection and moan all you want if players don't perform. COYR 🐏🐏🐏

I like it. Clarke injured and he’s shuffled the team to be more defensively compact but with counter attacking options

Amazing! Can’t believe joswiak is on the bench tho!
