Confirmed: Derby County and Leeds United line-ups

Here is how Derby County and Leeds United will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Derby County starting XI: Carson, Forsyth, Keogh, Hendrick, Martin, Russell, Baird, Shackell, Ince, Hanson, Thorne

Derby County subs: Grant, Dawksin, Bent, Pearce, Weimann, Shotton, Warnock

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Berardi, Cooper, Bamba, Taylor, Adeyemi, Cook, Mowatt, Byram, Dallas, Wood

Leeds United subs: Turnbull, Wootton, Bellusci, Murphy, Phillips, Doukara, Antenucci

Derby County take on Leeds United at the iPro Stadium this afternoon with both sides seeking their first league win of the season.

That said, both sides are undefeated in the Championship thus far, with Leeds 15th in the Championship table on four points and Derby one place below them.

Derby have a great home record against today’s opponents, winning their last six games against the Whites and undefeated in their last eight encounters at the iPro.

Leeds have only won one of their last 13 league games against Derby, with that victory coming last season when Mirco Antenucci scored both goals in a 2-0 victory at Elland Road.

How Leeds boss Uwe Rosler could do with a repeat of that result this afternoon, but Derby will have other ideas and it is likely to be a very close encounter.

But of course if recent form is anything to go by, a draw looks the most likely result…
