Duo missing for Clarets
Burnley will be without Martin Paterson and Junior Stanislas for the visit of Derby.
Both players suffered hamstring injuries in the second half of the Clarets' 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough last weekend.
Forward Paterson is facing three to four weeks out of action and the prognosis is worse for winger Stanislas, who is set for up to eight weeks on the sidelines.
Charlie Austin may partner top scorer Jay Rodriguez in attack in Paterson's absence, while Keith Treacy or Marvin Bartley could replace Stanislas.
Bartley stepped into the breach when the former West Ham man hobbled off at the Riverside Stadium, while Treacy maintained match sharpness by turning out for the Clarets' reserve team against Preston in midweek.
Striker Danny Ings came off the bench to net the winning goal in that match and could push for a place on the bench as he targets a Burnley debut after a five-month knee injury nightmare following his summer move from Bournemouth.
Nathan Tyson has suffered a minor setback with his groin injury and will miss out for Derby.
Tyson has been plagued by a groin problem since joining the Rams in the summer, making just two starts and two substitute appearances. He started the back-to-back home victories over Leeds and West Ham last month but has sat out the last three matches.
"The scar tissue Nathan has from some of the procedures he has undergone for his groin injury is causing him a little bit of a problem," said manager Nigel Clough. "It's not a long-term thing but he is not quite comfortable enough to get out there on the pitch. We hope this is just a small setback."
Fellow forward Ryan Noble will be included in the squad after rejoining the Rams on loan from Sunderland.
Meanwhile striker Steve Davies (skull fracture) and midfielder Jeff Hendrick made their comebacks in the Derbyshire Cup this week and could come into Clough's thinking.
Davies wore a protective mask as he played the full 90 minutes in a 4-0 victory over Central Midlands League opponents Pinxton while Hendrick played more than an hour after missing five first-team games with an ankle injury.
Stingy Rams earn point
Derby held firm for their fourth clean sheet in as many matches to leave Turf Moor with a share of the spoils after their clash with Burnley ended 0-0.
Nigel Clough's side offered little in the way of an attacking threat, but Burnley also created few chances of note as strong winds made flowing football almost impossible in east Lancashire.
Clarets striker Charlie Austin brought an excellent save out of former England Under-21 goalkeeper Frank Fielding in the second half, while Fielding's most taxing task of the opening period was keeping the ball still as he tried to take goal kicks.
Burnley came closest to taking the points when a cross from Keith Treacy swirled over Fielding and against the upright.
Ryan Noble had Derby's best chance but headed off target from Jamie Ward's corner, before Austin and top scorer Jay Rodriguez almost snatched victory in a strong Burnley finish.
A first draw in 20 npower Championship games for Eddie Howe's Clarets leaves them three points from the play-off places, one point behind Derby.
Treacy and Austin replaced hamstring injury victims Junior Stanislas and Martin Paterson in the Burnley line-up, while Nigel Clough stuck with the same Derby XI for a fourth consecutive game.
Josh McQuoid took a place on the Clarets' bench after joining on loan from Millwall this week, while Noble was among the visiting substitutes having made a similar move from Sunderland.
Austin had a goalbound shot blocked inside the first minute by Derby defender Shaun Barker and Treacy headed narrowly over from Rodriguez's cross.
Rodriguez then drove at the defence and unleashed a 30-yard shot that had visiting keeper Fielding scrambling in blustery conditions.
Clarets full-back Keiran Trippier elected to use these to his advantage with a raking long ball in the 25th minute that caught out the Derby backline and saw Rodriguez inches away from finding the decisive touch.
Dean Marney aimed a half-volley narrowly wide when a Treacy cross was partially cleared, but chances remained at a premium and it took Derby until the 43rd minute to test Lee Grant in the Burnley goal as Theo Robinson's 25-yard drive produced a routine save.
Clarets winger Ross Wallace received treatment for a back injury during the first period, leading the introduction of McQuoid for his debut after the interval.
Fielding produced a splendid stop, plunging to his right to keep out Austin's header from Marney's cross before thwarting McQuoid from the rebound in the 55th minute.
Treacy was then inches away from breaking the deadlock when his cross from the left touchline arched over Fielding and came back off the inside of the post.
Burnley defender Michael Duff headed a 65th-minute corner over the bar before Noble spurned a chance from Ward's delivery at the other end.
Some slick interplay from between McQuoid and Austin resulted in the latter firing wide from 10 yards.
Fielding frustrated Burnley once more when he denied Rodriguez with his legs in the 80th minute.
