Derby team news: Frank Lampard has three unavailable

Derby County will be looking to get back to winning ways on Tuesday night when they host Blackburn Rovers at Pride Park.

The Rams were defeated by Rotherham United at the weekend to end a winning run of three matches and Frank Lampard’s side will want to bounce back quickly.

However, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, the former Chelsea legend will be without Tom Lawrence for the game.

The attacker was sent off during their defeat to the Millers last weekend and will start his three-match suspension against Blackburn.

Lampard, who was also shown a red card by the referee in the same game, has no other injury concerns and could see both Craig Bryson and David Nugent make a return to the matchday squad.

However, experienced defender Curtis Davies remains sidelined with a hamstring issue, whilst George Evans continues to deal with a knee problem.

The Verdict:

Lampard will be looking for a reaction from his side on Tuesday night as they look to get back to winning ways.

The former England midfielder looks to have taken well to management, despite his red card at the weekend, however, he will already know it is not an easy career and will be looking to overcome the test of Blackburn.

Lawrence will be a big miss for the side, as well as Davies and Evans, however, with Bryson and Nugent both available, the Rams will feel confident they can get a win over the Ewood Park outfit on Tuesday night.
