Derby County and Reading lock horns at the iPro Stadium with a place in the last 16 of the Capital One Cup up for grabs.
Derby have made a decent start to the new season, racking up 13 points in the first eight games of the Championship season, which leaves them in ninth place, just two points off the top six. So far in the Capital One Cup, Derby have beaten Carlisle 2-0 and Charlton 1-0, meaning they enter tonight's clash without having conceded a goal in the competition.
Manager Steve McClaren has rung the changes tonight, with Kelle Roos, Ryan Shotton, Omar Mascarell, Johnny Russell, Jordan Ibe and Leon Best coming into the side from Saturday's 2-2 draw with Cardiff City, with Lee Grant, Zak Whitbread, John Eustace, Simon Dawkins, Jamie Ward and Chris Martin dropping out.
Their opponent tonight, Reading, are just two places below Derby in the Championship with the exact same amount of points so far. In the Capital One Cup, the Royals have seen off Newport County and Scunthorpe 3-1 and 1-0 respectively, with tonight's game clearly the biggest test that Nigel Adkins' side have faced so far.
He has named a youthful looking side tonight, with Mikkel Andersen, Michael Hector, Aaron Kuhl and Ryan Edwards in the starting line-up, and a host of youth team prospects on the bench too.
