Derby County v Blackburn Rovers - Preview

Double fitness boost for Derby ahead of Rovers clash

Kamil Jozwiak and Jack Marriott are both expected to be fit for Derby when they host Blackburn.

Poland international winger Jozwiak made his full debut against Luton, playing 87 minutes, but forward Marriott had to come off just after the hour at Kenilworth Road last weekend.

Both trained on Thursday, along with Duane Holmes, and Rams boss Phillip Cocu should be able to call on their services.

Saturday’s match may come too soon for Holmes but Mike Te Wierik is available again after a ban. New signing Jordan Ibe may be short of match fitness.

Rovers travel to Pride Park with an unchanged squad.

Sam Gallagher (groin) is edging closer to a return but, having not featured at all in pre-season, the striker will not be rushed back. Corry Evans (foot) is also nearing full fitness but Saturday’s game comes too soon.

It looks like Lewis Travis may require surgery after damaging knee ligaments in the Carabao Cup defeat at Newcastle and the midfielder could be out for several weeks.

Bradley Dack is working his way back from a serious knee injury, while summer signing Daniel Ayala is building up his fitness, having not played a competitive fixture since New Year’s Day.

    Derby County 0 - 4 Blackburn Rovers - Match Report

    Bradley Johnson condemns former side Derby to their worst start for 28 years

    Bradley Johnson returned to Pride Park to inspire Blackburn to a 4-0 victory and condemn Derby to their worst start for 28 years.

    Johnson, who left Derby in July 2019, scored twice as Rovers ripped County apart with Tyrhys Dolan and Adam Armstrong also finding the net.

    It is the first time since 1992 that Derby have lost the first three games of a season and the defeat could have been heavier but for David Marshall who made a string of good saves.

    Derby had started strongly with Max Bird seeing a shot cleared off the line but Blackburn stunned them with three goals in the space of four minutes.

    The home side were caught out by a rapid break in the 11th minute and after Ben Brereton’s shot came back off a post, Dolan tapped in the rebound.

    Derby were still reeling from that when Johnson made it two a minute later with a 25-yard drive that fizzed into the bottom-left corner of Marshall’s net.

    Marshall could do nothing about Johnson’s second in the 15th minute when another strike from distance took a big deflection on its way into the roof of the net.

    Rovers looked like scoring every time they went forward and Brereton almost added a fourth in the 20th minute when his back-post header was saved by Marshall.

    Derby’s defensive vulnerability was exposed again in the 33rd minute as Joe Rothwell surged into the box but his attempt to pass the ball into the net resulted in a simple save for Marshall.

    The Scotland international rescued Derby again when Lewis Holtby played in Armstrong but Marshall made a brilliant save.

    Derby had strong appeals for a penalty turned down and Louie Sibley had a header tipped over before Blackburn almost added a fourth on the break at the end of a remarkable first half.

    Derby switched formation for the second half but Blackburn still created chances with Brereton firing over from a good position before Rothwell ran into the box but again failed to find the power to trouble Marshall.

    Both sides were finding space and Kamil Jozwiak got in on the right in the 65th minute but could not get enough bend on the ball to find the far corner.

    Derby had another chance seven minutes later when Nathan Byrne’s cross from the right was met by Lee Buchanan but he headed over from eight yards.

    Any doubts about the outcome were removed in the 77th minute when Harry Chapman broke clear on the right and set up Armstrong for a close-range finish – his sixth goal of the season.
