There is one change to the Derby County team for the clash with Championship leaders Bournemouth at Pride Park Stadium.

Nathan Byrne serves a one-match suspension following his red card in the draw at Millwall and in comes 19-year-old midfielder Liam Thompson for his league debut.

It is likely to mean Festy Ebosele moving back to right back.

Wayne Rooney has been impressed with Thompson.

"He has done fantastic for the under-23s, he has been consistently the best player in the under-23s now for a while," the manager said on Friday.

Ravel Morrison is available again after missing the Millwall fixture due to suspension and is among the substitutes. Morrison has been on international duty with Jamaica and figured in their World Cup qualifier against USA in Kingston in midweek.

Also on the bench for the first time is 16-year-old Omari Kellyman, the Northern Ireland Under-17 attacking midfielder/forward.

The Rams go into the game bottom of the Championship on minus three points having had 12 points deducted this season.

They are without a win in seven matches while Bournemouth have lost just one of their 17 league fixtures.
