Derby County

Wisdom starts – The Derby XI we expect Lampard to play v Leeds tonight



Derby County are looking strong at the moment and will head to Elland Road tonight with belief and confidence that they can take the three points against Leeds United.

The Rams were on the wrong end of a bit of a hiding the last time these two met in the Sky Bet Championship but things have changed since.

Of course, Leeds are still big title contenders but in recent weeks they’ve shown signs of faltering, and the Rams have the attacking potency to take advantage.

Here, then, we take a look at the side we expect to take to the field tonight for them…

The headlines for us are that we think Frank Lampard will risk Harry Wilson playing out wide.

The loan-signing has been excellent this year and though he has had injury issues this week, he is near a return and you need players like him in games like this.

Elsewhere, we can see Florian Jozefzoon coming back into the side down the other flank to complete the front three with Jack Marriott.

In midfield, will Lampard be tempted to play both Craig Bryson and Tom Huddlestone against Leeds’ impressive attack? We could see it, with Mason Mount completing the central trio.

Then, in defence, Andre Wisdom comes back in on the left as Scott Malone continues to struggle with injury whilst Fikayo Tomori, Richard Keogh and Jayden Bogle largely pick themselves right now.

And, speaking of certs to start, Scott Carson will be in between the sticks for the away side this evening.
