Team News

Due to the international break, Derby are going to be without Conor Washington, Darren Robinson, Tyrese Fornah and Ryan Nyambe.

Jack Powell, Zac Williams, Owen Lunt, Joel Tabiner and Chris Long are all out injured for the visitors.

Derby and both teams to score in 90 minutes @ 7/4

After beating Barnsley 3-0 at Pride Park over the weekend, Warne's men head into this replay full of confidence and although there are likely going to be plenty of changes for both sides, the Rams should come through this game and progress to the second round.

Crewe certainly gave them a lot to think about two weeks ago and the League Two high-flyers will look to cause more problems for the side a division above them. After the 2-2 in the first fixture, we are certainly expecting to see a few goals fly in at Pride Park at both ends, but Derby should have more than enough to come away with the win.

James Collins to score in 90 minutes @ EVS

After making an appearance from the bench at Crewe in the reverse fixture, there is a good chance that striker James Collins will be given the nod to lead the line in Washington's absence, and he will be eager to open his FA Cup account for the year.

Collins has seven goals in 16 League One appearances this term, and he has also a further three to his name in the EFL Trophy. Following his brace against Barnsley over the weekend, the 32-year-old will be full of confidence ahead of the visit of Crewe Alexandra, and if he can put a scoring run together, he can cement his place in the starting lineup.
