Derby v Ipswich: Blues boss Mick McCarthy has reverted to the team that started the 3-0 victory over Leeds last Saturday, for this afternoon’s Championship clash at Derby County.

That means McCarthy has made five changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Millwall on Easter Monday with Andy Drury, Carlos Edwards, Jay Tabb, David McGoldrick and Daryl Murphy coming in for Guirane N’Daw, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Lee Martin, Michael Chopra and Frank Nouble. Winger Martin misses out altogether through illness.

The Rams make one change from the team that won at Leeds with top scorer Jamie Ward replacing Ben Davies.

Town are chasing their first away win of 2013, having not scored an away goal since the 2-1 defeat at Bristol City.

Derby: Fielding, Freeman, Keogh, Buxton, Forsyth, Coutts, Hendrick, Bryson, Ward, Martin, Sammon. Subs: Legdzins, Davies, Jacobs, Gjokaj, Bennett, Roberts, Doyle

Ipswich: Loach, Stearman, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, Hyam, Drury, Tabb, McGoldrick, Murphy. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Hewitt, Kisnorbo, N’Daw, Emmanuel-Thomas, Nouble, Chopra
