Both sides have endured difficult starts to the season and both are searching for a first competitive win under their new managers.
Ultimately, this is going to be a contest which comes down to which striker heading each side can take their chances more effectively.

Wood is ahead in terms of goals scored so far this season and he’s taking fewer attempts per strike, which suggests that he’s in better form than the Rams man.
Wood also appears to be the more difficult player to get the better of when it comes down to confrontation.
He’s won more aerial duels so far this season and has also won more straight up physical duels, which suggests that once he gets onto the ball, it’s difficult for him to be brushed off effectively.
Where Martin excels is with the accuracy of his passing, as he seems to be better in terms of keeping possession and helping Derby maintain the pressure over their opposition inside the final third.
