Tony Mowbray has named another unchanged team as his Rovers side look to record a fourth successive Championship victory.

Danny Graham leads the line again for Rovers against one of his former clubs, with Adam Armstrong, Bradley Dack and Joe Rothwell offering support behind the frontman.

Having both made an impact off the bench at Stoke City last weekend, Elliott Bennett and Sam Gallagher will hope to have a similar effect today.

Bradley Johnson joins the pair as being named as a substitute, and will be hoping to get one over his former team, for whom he appeared 140 times in four years.

The only alteration to the squad sees John Buckley come into the 18 in place of Amari'i Bell.

Phillip Cocu's side come armed with ex-Rovers loanee Tom Lawrence who appeared 23 times for the club during the 2015-16 campaign.

An experienced Derby side are captained by Curtis Davies, whilst Craig Forsyth will join him at the back for another start after returning from a year out of action through injury earlier this month.

In form forward Martyn Waghorn starts for The Rams, looking to add to his two goals in his last three outings.

Kick-off is at 3pm and if you can't make the game then you can track all the action on iFollow Rovers and our social media channels.
