Match Preview
David Nugent a doubt for Derby

David Nugent is an injury doubt for Derby's home clash with Huddersfield.

Striker Nugent suffered a groin strain during the first half of Friday's 4-0 thumping at Brentford and was replaced by Darren Bent for the second 45 minutes.

Boss Gary Rowett could ring the changes following the Griffin Park nightmare - his first defeat since taking charge.

Jason Shackell (back), Nick Blackman (knee), Craig Forsyth (knee) and George Thorne (leg) remain long-term absentees for the Rams.

Huddersfield midfielder Philip Billing is a major doubt for the game after suffering a groin injury in the win over Preston.

Billing was forced off after 36 minutes of Friday's game, although his replacement Jack Payne scored Town's second goal in the 3-2 success.

Sean Scannell was an unused substitute after featuring for the Under-23s this week and Harry Bunn will also hope to be involved as he continues his comeback from injury.

Defender Jon Gorenc Stankovic is out for 10 months after tearing a cruciate knee ligament last month.
