Match Preview

Dyche in position of strength Watford boss Sean Dyche has no new injury problems to contend with for the visit of Derby. Midfielder Stephen McGinn is the only absentee as he continues to be sidelined with a knee injury. The Hornets threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Burnley on the opening day and have had a full week to rest after their Carling Cup tie at Bristol Rovers on Wednesday was postponed due to the disturbances in the city. Summer signing Chris Iwelumo is set to keep his place up front despite being replaced by Troy Deeney against his former side Burnley. Dyche is unlikely to make too many changes from that game with David Mirfin, Carl Dickinson, Prince Buaben and Tom James all vying for their debuts. Stand-in skipper Jason Shackell is expected to be fit. The summer signing from Championship rivals Barnsley, who missed the majority of pre-season with a calf injury, was substituted late on in the Carling Cup defeat to Shrewsbury on Tuesday night due to a stiff back. With fellow centre-halves Shaun Barker (knee), Jake Buxton, Russell Anderson (groin) and Dean Leacock (knee) already sidelined by injury, manager Nigel Clough`s options at the heart of defence are limited to just Shackell and youngster Mark O`Brien. Chris Riggott, who re-joined the club on a one-year deal this week, is still working his way back to full fitness following a series of injuries and is not yet in consideration for a first-team place. Clough expects Shackell, who scored Derby`s first goal of the season in the 2-1 win over Birmingham last weekend, to be available at Vicarage Road on Saturday. "Knowing the character that Jason is he will be fine for Saturday," said Clough, who will have striker Jamie Ward and midfielder Jeff Hendrick back in the squad following their return from international duty.

Match Report

Derby maintain perfect start A superb strike from Steve Davies early in the second half was enough to see Derby to make it two wins from two in the npower Championship as they prevailed 1-0 at Watford. Nigel Clough's side bounced back from the midweek Carling Cup defeat against Shrewsbury despite spending most of the game on the back foot. The strike from Davies, his second of the season having also scored the winner against Birmingham at Pride Park last weekend, secured the Rams' first victory at Vicarage Road since 2009 and their first away win in seven league games. The Hornets, unchanged from last week's draw at Burnley, should have taken the lead in the first five minutes after Mark Yeates set up Marvin Sordell inside the box, but his effort was well saved by Frank Fielding. Lloyd Doyley, making his 300th league appearance for Watford, set up Craig Forsyth just five minutes later, but he headed wide. It was all Watford early on, with Martin Taylor also missing from an inviting position. Derby's first sight of goal came after 17 minutes through Jamie Ward, fresh from international duty with Northern Ireland, but his long-range effort sailed over the crossbar. Sordell was in the action once again in the 25th minute but his 18-yard effort was comfortably saved by Fielding. Watford continued to dominate and Forsyth had another sight of goal five minutes before half-time but he shot wide from the right of the area. The Hornets continued to press and could have gone ahead after more good work from Yeates, but his cross was headed wide by Sordell towards the end of the half. Despite making all the running, Watford fell behind after 51 minutes, as Davies struck with a thunderbolt. He received the ball from Lee Croft 20 yards out, cut onto his left foot on the right side, and rifled an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net. The goal seemed to startle Watford, and Derby pressed forward with Ward's long-range shot being well saved by Scott Loach. Watford again poured forward to force an equaliser through the lively Sordell, and his fierce 20-yard effort was tipped around the post by Fielding to deny the Hornets. The home side went agonisingly close to an equaliser on 79 minutes, Yeates crossed to the head of John Eustace but once again, Fielding thwarted Watford, this time with his feet. Further invention from Yeates set up substitute Gavin Massey after 88 minutes with the goal at his mercy, but his header was held by the outstanding Fielding. Massey had another chance to salvage a point in injury time, but he could only head Yeates' corner over the crossbar.
