Derby County Under-23s face their West Ham United counterparts in a crucial Premier League Two Division One encounter on Monday afternoon (3pm).
Going into what is their penultimate match of the season, the young Rams are second from bottom of the table, one point from safety and with a game in hand.
Victory for Darren Wassall’s side at Moor Farm would take them above Sunderland, who beat Leicester City 4-1 on Sunday to climb out of the bottom two.
Indeed, even a draw would lift Derby out of the drop zone on goal difference ahead of their final fixture of the campaign against Leicester at the King Power Stadium next Monday (April 23).
Derby thrashed West Ham 5-1 when the teams met earlier in the season.
However, United are fifth in the table and 10 points better off than the Rams.
A strong-looking Derby side features Richard Keogh, George Thorne, Jamie Hanson and Luke Thomas.
DERBY COUNTY U23S: Mitchell, Bogle, Keogh, Wassall, Buchanan, Bateman, Thorne, Hanson, Cresswell, Thomas, Eyoma. Subs: Barnes (gk), Bird, Walker, Sibley, Babos.
