Predicted Derby County line-up to face Ipswich Town in the Championship

Derby County will travel to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town as Frank Lampard aims for all three points on Wednesday evening.

The Rams beat Hull City 2-0 at the weekend, thanks to a Martyn Waghorn brace. A win over Ipswich Town will see Derby County climb up the table and go level on points with fourth-placed West Brom.

Ipswich Town, meanwhile, are tottering at the bottom of the table and desperately need points to escape relegation.

Team News

Jack Marriott is back in training but the game against Ipswich Town might come around too quickly for him. Tom Lawrence and Scott Carson remain a doubt for the game with calf and thigh problems respectively.

Probable Derby County XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Frank Lampard

Kelle Roos (GK)

Roos continues to perform well between the sticks and he’ll keep his place in goal.

Jayden Bogle (RB)

Bogle was restored to the starting XI against Hull and put in a strong performance. He will start at right-back.

Richard Keogh (CB)

In the absence of Curtis Davies, Keogh has led the backline and performed extremely well.

Fikayo Tomori (CB)

Partnering Keogh in central defence will be Tomori, who has been one of the first names on Lampard’s team sheet.

Scott Malone (LB)

Malone will have a good chance to make runs down the left and pin back the Ipswich Town right-back. He will look to establish himself as an attacking outlet in this game.

Tom Huddlestone

Tom Huddlestone (CDM)

Huddlestone’s presence in the team is vital as he controls the game from the base of the midfield. He is a certain starter against Ipswich.

Duane Holmes (LCM)

Holmes should start on the left-hand side of the midfield trio and look to make a mark at Portman Road.

Craig Bryson (RCM)

Bryson is an energetic player who helps Derby tick. He should start in central midfield alongside Holmes.

Harry Wilson (RW)

Wilson is an indispensable figure to the Rams team because of the creativity, pace and movement he brings to the team.

Harry Wilson

Florian Jozefzoon (LW)

Jozefzoon is a tricky customer who will look to trouble the Ipswich backline with his pace and unpredictability.

Martyn Waghorn (ST)

Waghorn is in good form of late as it was his brace that gave Derby County a win over Hull. He will look to haunt his former employers on Wednesday.
