There are four changes to the Derby County team to face Cardiff City in their final game of the season. Goalkeeper Ryan Allsop, Liam Thompson, Louie Sibley and skipper Tom Lawrence come in and Kelle Roos, Festy Ebosele, Louie Watson and Luke Plange make way.

Lawrence returns following his two-match suspension after being sent off against Queens Park, his second red card of the season.

There is no Nathan Byrne in the squad. Krystian Bielik misses out through injury. A groin problem forced the Polish international midfielder to sit out the last two matches against Bristol City and Blackpool.

"Krystian won't be fit. He tried to train on Thursday but he didn't finish the session," manager Wayne Rooney said.

"Lee Buchanan the same, he didn't finish the session. So those two are out."

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards remains sidelined with the ankle injury he suffered in the defeat at Blackburn in March.

Looking ahead to the Cardiff game, Rooney said: "It is an important game, last game of the season, there is going to be a big attendance and so we hope we can get three points to finish off the season."
