Derby County

Oakwell Stadium

September 18th 2010

3pm

Barnsley look to keep up their 100% home record with another win in front of the Oakwell faithful but Nigel Clough's Derby County stand in their way.

Vital Quotes:

'Derby are a big club. They've had plenty of changes over the last 18 months. They are a threat. They'll be a handful. We've got to guard against any complacency. This is a different game with different threats. We're full of confidence and that's the way it should be.'

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley may welcome back Hugo Colace to the squad after his lay off through a calf tear, but after the magnificent 5-2 win over Leeds in midweek, Robins may wish to keep the same starting eleven.

Player to watch: Adam Hammill

Hammill has been in scintillating form of late, with 3 goals in his last four games, he is frightening defenders throughout the division and attracting a lot of interest from the division above.

Derby County Team News:

New signing Shefki Kuqi is fit to be included for his second start for Derby and will be looking to be amongst the goals.

Player to watch: Shefki Kuqi

This man has been a thorn in Barnsley's side on a regular basis since the turn of the millennium, scoring 5 goals in his 8 appearances against the Tykes, but he is perhaps best remembered now by Barnsley, for his incredible miss at the Liberty Stadium last season.

Match Facts & Stats

This the 55th meeting between the two clubs. Barnsley are looking for their 18th win over the Rams. The Reds are unbeaten in their last four games against Derby.

Match Prediction:

I'm backing the Reds to keep their 100% record and also get back to keeping clean sheets. 2-0 home win.
