Liam Lindsay returns to the side with Emil Riis - who had a spell with Derby as a teenager - dropping to the bench.

Lindsay missed last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Stoke City as he wasn't allowed to face the club he is on loan from.

If McAvoy sticks with the 3-5-2 he has favoured in his tenure, Lindsay will slot in between Jordan Storey and Andrew Hughes att he back.
