Derby County team news vs Port Vale: Paul Warne names ...
Derby County head coach Paul Warne has named an unchanged side to face Port Vale in Tuesday night’s League One encounter.
The Rams travel to Vale Park looking to extend their unbeaten record to 19 games, following the weekend’s 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers. And the Derby boss has gone for an unchanged starting line-up from that clash.
Eiran Cashin and Louie Sibley have lost their fitness race to return for the game meaning that captain Curtis Davies retains his place in the centre of defence. Haydon Roberts also continues in the left-back position.
