Confirmed: Derby County v Charlton lineups

Derby County Away Flag

Here are the teams as Derby host Charlton in the Championship this evening.

Derby County have worked hard to get a lead at the top of the Championship and they will be determined to build on it even further when they host Charlton. The job for Steve McClaren’s team this evening is going to be a difficult one, but they should be determined to start quickly and get in front which gives them a lead they can protect and gradually look at improving over the course of the game. Heads could drop in the Charlton ranks if the Rams get their noses in front.

Charlton are currently down in 14th place and could move up three places in the table with a win, should other results go their way. Charlton are in good form having scored six goals in their last two games without conceding a single strike. If they show the same attacking prowess in this game against the Rams, it could be difficult for Derby to deal with the counter attacking play and pace throughout Charlton’s midfield. Charlton need to defend well and rely on one of their key attacking players maintaining their recent good form.
