Match Preview

Commons boost for Rams Kris Commons is expected to be fit when Derby resume their Championship campaign at home to Sheffield United. Alarm bells started to ring when a tight hamstring forced the Scotland international forward off a minute before half-time in the draw against QPR a fortnight ago. Commons was plagued by hamstring trouble for much of last season but he returned to training this week. With Rob Hulse and Luke Varney having departed during the transfer window and Chris Porter still a doubt with a hip problem, Alberto Bueno is likely to be involved. The Spanish forward is on a season-long loan from Real Valladolid and got his first taste of English football with a run-out for the reserves on Wednesday evening. Russell Anderson could be included on the bench. The experienced defender has been sidelined since suffering a groin strain in the victory over Leeds on the opening day of the season. Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan is expected to return to the starting line-up. Morgan sat out the 1-0 win over Preston due to a calf strain and either Kyle Bartley or Nyron Nosworthy will make way. Recent French signing Jean Calve scored a stunning winner on his debut against North End and will be fit despite leaving the field with cramp. Blades manager Gary Speed will be without long-term absentees Darius Henderson (hamstring), Lee Williamson (back) and Ryan France (knee). Speed will be taking charge of his third game following the departure of Kevin Blackwell last month as the Blades chase only their second league win of the season.

Match Report

Cresswell batters Rams Richard Cresswell's first goal of the season was enough to clinch Sheffield United a second successive npower Championship win and send Derby spinning to their third defeat in five matches. Blades striker Cresswell converted Jean Calve's cross from close range in the 15th minute and the only surprise at Pride Park was that the visitors failed to add further goals in a game they dominated. Ched Evans, Cresswell and Nick Montgomery all spurned chances to add to Derby's woes, while Nigel Clough's side had only two notable efforts on goal, both from Kris Commons in the second period. Derby, without a win since their triumph at Leeds on the opening day of the season, made just one change to the side that conceded two stoppage-time goals to draw 2-2 with QPR in their last match, with Tomasz Cywka assuming duties as a lone striker in place of Conor Doyle. United, unchanged after clinching their first win of the season under manager Gary Speed against Preston two weeks ago, began full of confidence and went close through Evans before taking a 15th-minute lead. French defender Calve, whose long-range winner on his debut stunned Preston, wasted little time in making another telling contribution, sweeping over a cross from the right into the path of Cresswell, who made no mistake from six yards. Derby had plenty of first-half possession, but the Blades carved out by far the better chances. Evans' low left-footed shot was parried by Derby goalkeeper Stephen Bywater and summer signing Johnny Ertl pulled his effort wide moments later. Evans and Cresswell again, with a header from another Calve cross, went close to doubling the visitors' lead before the break, while Blades goalkeeper Steve Simonsen did not have a save to make in the first period. Commons had Derby's first effort on goal 80 seconds after the restart, but his angled drive was blocked by Blades midfielder Montgomery. Evans continued to make a nuisance of himself, firing wide and testing Bywater with another angled shot, either side of Derby manager Clough's decision to send on new signing Alberto Bueno in place of Robbie Savage to help ease the burden on Cywka. Bueno, on a season-long loan from Real Valladolid, was given a crude welcome to English football soon after when Nyron Nosworthy clattered into the 22-year-old Spaniard and received a booking. But United continued to carry the greater threat. Calve crossed again, this time for Jamie Ward to plant a firm header just wide in the 69th minute. Cresswell lashed a shot over the crossbar and Montgomery dragged another wide before Commons forced Simonsen to hold his raking 20-yard shot. Ward was off target with another shot as Derby failed to lift themselves for a rousing finale and it was Cresswell who went closest to adding to the scoresheet in the five minutes of time added on when he rifled a 20-yard effort over the crossbar.
