Derby County vs Birmingham - Lampard could shake things up for Birmingham game

Derby boss Frank Lampard may opt to freshen up his side for the clash with Birmingham.

An unchanged County took Lampard’s former club Chelsea all the way in the Carabao Cup in midweek, narrowly losing 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea loanee Mason Mount shrugged off a knee injury to play against his parent club and may need a rest, with midfielder Bradley Johnson an option.

Craig Bryson (calf), George Evans (hip), Joe Ledley (hip/back) and Marcus Olsson (knee) were unavailable against Chelsea.

Despite hobbling off with a hip injury in the match against Sheffield Wednesday, defender Harlee Dean will be available for Birmingham.

Dean went off in the first half and was replaced by Marc Roberts, but manager Garry Monk said the injury was not too severe.

Winger Jacques Maghoma will not be available for the Derby match, with his recovery focused on a return in the derby against Aston Villa on November 25.

Forward Isaac Vassell and midfielder David Davis complete the injury list for Birmingham, with the former closing in on a return to training.
