Billy Davies has made big changes to his Forest starting XI for their League Cup games against Hartlepool and Millwall and been rewarded with two victories and a nudge from his fringe players.
Wholesale alterations are likely to be made once again for the trip to Burnley.
Derby also face an all-Championship fixture as they visit Leicester and manager Nigel Clough is weighing up his options after the defeat by Reading at Pride Park on Saturday.
He told the Derby Telegraph: "We will see who needs a breather. We are in a run of Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday games, so we will probably make a couple of changes."
