Confirmed: Derby County line-up vs FC Utrecht

Derby County Huddle

Derby County take on Eredivisie side FC Utrecht today.

The Rams take on Utrecht at 14:00 BST on Friday afternoon.

Three pre-season games have brought one loss and two defeats, and although the side is starting to take shape under Paul Clement, the three fixtures have been far from excellent.

Only three goals have been scored, but the two victories have also brought clean sheets, and the number of signings made by the club this summer mean that the players need time to bed in together.

Johnny Russell has netted twice, whilst Tom Ince has also scored in pre-season, and Clement will be hoping to lead his talented side to another victory over the Dutch club.

Last season, Utrecht finished 11th in the Eredivisie, scoring 60 and conceding 62 goals in 34 league games. The dangermen in the side are Rubio Rubin and Tommy Oar, who led the scoring charts last term.

Clement will be hoping to lead his side to a third consecutive victory against a tough opposition, with two pre-season games to follow prior to the start of the Championship campaign on August 8.

Here is how Derby line up to take on FC Utrecht on Friday.
