Derby are on a five-game unbeaten run in the EFL Championship, but will that continue when high-flying Swansea City visit Pride Park on Wednesday? Wayne Rooney has made the Rams hard to beat but they face a Swans side who are in third place.

Derby Form


Derby have won just one of their last 14 matches in the Championship, but it did come as part of the club's current five-match unbeaten run.

Interim-manager Wayne Rooney has seen his side draw four and win one of his five games in charge since taking over the reins at Pride Park.

Rooney's time in sole charge started with two 1-1 stalemates at home to Wycombe and Coventry. A two-month wait for a Derby win was then ended with a 1-0 victory at Millwall thanks to Jason Knight's goal.

The last two games have ended in 0-0 draws away to Brentford and at home to Stoke on Saturday.

Derby Team News


Derby midfielder Tom Lawrence is a major doubt after limping out of Saturday's draw with Stoke after 33 minutes. Louie Sibley or Morgan Whittaker could replace him in the starting line-up.

Swansea Form


Swansea find themselves in third spot in the Championship table, four points off top spot following a run of one defeat in their last seven matches.

Steve Cooper's side claimed the honours in the Welsh derby on Saturday as Jamal Lowe double sealed a 2-0 win at rivals Cardiff City.

The Swans have also beaten Rotherham (1-0) and Luton (2-0) at home and Nottingham Forest (1-0) away during their recent run of form.

Swansea collected points from draws at home against Sheffield Wednesday (1-1) and Bournemouth (0-0). Their only loss came at Middlesbrough in a 2-1 defeat.

Swansea Team News


Midfielders Morgan Gibbs-White and George Byers remain out, but otherwise Steve Cooper has a full squad to choose from.
