Steve McClaren could tinker with leaky Derby defence

Derby boss Steve McClaren could consider making changes at the back for the visit of Burton.

The Rams have conceded seven goals in their last two home outings and the likes of Jason Shackell and Cyrus Christie are vying for recalls.

There are other places up for grabs, too, with Ikechi Anya's place in attack under threat from Johnny Russell and Abdoul Camara.

David Nugent is still waiting to make his full debut for the club after appearing four times from the bench since arriving from Middlesbrough.

Former Derby manager Nigel Clough could recall John Brayford, who played for the hosts between 2010 and 2013.

Brayford has been struggling with a knee injury but only just missed the weekend win over Wolves and is eyeing a return to the squad.

Chris O'Grady should return to the 18 and Lloyd Dyer could once again be kept on the bench given Michael Kightly's form.

Kyle McFadzean (toe) and Damien McCrory (hamstring) are working their way back from injuries.
