Derby County and Barrow meet in the opening round of the Carabao Cup at Pride Park on Saturday. The game signals Barrow's return to the big time after winning the National League last season, a trip to Championship side Derby is a tough start.

Derby County Form

Derby County finished the Championship season six points adrift of the play-off places in 10th spot. The Rams' chances of promotion were dashed by a five-game winless run which was only ended with a final day 3-1 victory over Birmingham.

The short pre-season has seen Derby play four friendlies. They were 2-1 winners over Peterborough United and drew 0-0 with another League One side Doncaster Rovers.

Derby lost 3-0 to beaten Championship play-off finalists Brentford and went down 2-0 to Premier League club Sheffield United.

Derby County Team News

Derby cleared out some big names at the end of the season with Tom Huddleston, Chris Martin and Ikechi Anya among the departures. Mason Bennett was also sold to Millwill. 

The incomings include goalkeepers David Marshall and Emmanuel Idem from Wigan and Canvey Island, defender Mike te Wierik from Groningen, Manchester United midfielder Olamide Ibrahim and forward Cian Kelly from Bohemian. 

Derby have also signed Matthew Clarke on loan from Brighton for a second season after he was voted player of the season in 2019/20.

Barrow Form

Barrow haven't played competitively since early March when they lost 2-0 to Notts County. Despite the defeat, they held a four-point lead at top of the National League and were crowned champions when clubs voted to end the season due to the global pandemic.

David Dunn's side will begin life in League Two next week, but the first task is a Carabao Cup tie against Derby. Barrow have warmed up for this with friendly wins over Holker Old Boys (4-0) and Southport (2-0), a 2-2 draw with FC United of Manchester and a 2-1 loss to Blackpool.

New faces brought in by Dunn for the League Two campaign include defenders Tom Beadling (Dunfermline), Bobby Burns (Hearts), James Jones (Altrincham) and Matthew Platt (Blackburn), midfielders Mike Jones (Carlisle) and Callum Gribbin (Sheffield Unitd) and forward Luke James (Hartlepool). 

Midfielder Harrison Biggins has joined on loan from Fleetwood.
