Bristol City v Derby County - Preview

Bristol City sweating on results of coronavirus tests ahead of Derby clash

Bristol City manager Dean Holden is anxiously awaiting the results of Covid-19 tests on his squad ahead of the visit of Derby.

The club confirmed an outbreak of coronavirus on Monday, with three unnamed players and three backroom staff members understood to have tested positive, and the training ground was immediately closed until Thursday when further tests were being carried out.

Former Watford and Crystal Palace centre-back Adrian Mariappa, who signed as a free agent in the international break, is set for a debut.

Callum O’Dowda returned home early from the Republic of Ireland squad with a dead leg and will be assessed.

Derby player-coach Wayne Rooney’s first job will be to decide whether to pick himself.

The former Manchester United and Everton forward took over running of the side along with Leroy Rosenior, goalkeeper coach Shay Given and first-team development coach Justin Walker following the departure of Phillip Cocu during the international break.

Winger Jordon Ibe, who has yet to make a first-team appearance after joining in September, has returned to training following a bout of illness.

Lee Buchanan, Jason Knight, David Marshall, Kamil Jozwiak and Tom Lawrence all returned from international duty with no issues.

    Famara Diedhiou goal means defeat for Wayne Rooney and Derby

    Wayne Rooney’s first game as figurehead of Derby’s new coaching team ended in a 1-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat to Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

    Substitute Famara Diedhiou struck the only goal on 78 minutes, latching onto an Antoine Semenyo cross from the right and beating David Marshall with a low left-footed shot from 12 yards.

    It was enough to settle a game of few chances and keep Derby pinned to the bottom of the table, while the hosts kept themselves flying high among the frontrunners.

    Rooney played the whole game but was unable to inspire his side to victory against a well-organised home defence.

    Derby’s four-man coaching team, including former Bristol player Liam Rosenior, who directed operations from the dugout, made three changes from the 2-0 home defeat by Barnsley, calling Andre Wisdom, Max Bird and Duane Holmes into a 4-2-3-1 formation.

    Bristol, whose training ground only reopened on Thursday after a Covid-19 outbreak, were unchanged from their 1-0 victory at Cardiff last time out.

    It took an outstanding Dan Bentley save to stop Derby taking a sixth minute lead. The goalkeeper arched his back to tip over a well-struck Martyn Waghorn volley from the edge of the box.

    Five minutes later Marshall was almost left red-faced when robbed by Jamie Paterson, but the City player seemed more surprised than anyone and a poor touch allowed the goalkeeper to recover.

    Both sides settled into playing neat passing football without an end product. The game was past the half hour mark when Semenyo forced a save from Marshall with a low drive.

    At the other end, Bentley was relieved to see a deflected shot from Holmes go wide. The busy Holmes then put Jason Knight in on the right, but his cross was blocked by Tomas Kalas.

    Bristol had the first meaningful goal attempt of the second half as Semenyo’s 59th minute was dealt with by Marshall at his near post. Seconds later Waghorn was just wide for Derby with a curling effort.

    Semenyo headed wide from a Jack Hunt cross as both teams again attacked with promise. Holmes fired over for the visitors before Paterson wasted a good Bristol chance by shooting over from inside the box.

    Both sides made changes, Bristol head coach Dean Holden sending on Diedhiou and Chris Brunt for Martin and Callum O’Dowda before Derby responded by replacing Holmes with Morgan Whittaker.

    It was Diedhiou’s introduction that reaped dividends. More changes followed for both sides, but while Derby threw men forward in the closing stages their finishing was not accurate enough to test Bentley.

    Matt Clarke was wide with a header as the hosts soaked up late pressure to claim the points.
