Teams: Derby County, Burton Albion
Yes, a fairly comfortable outing. Looks like 4231 could be the way forward, which is what I thought/hoped.
Would be nice to have a fully fit George Thorne in one of the DM positions against Sunderland, but might be a tad optimistic, and there's no sense in rushing him back, make sure he is ready first.
After the first look at the team last night, I think the first choice team at present looks like this...
Wisdom Keogh Davies ?????
Russell?? Nugent/Vydra ??????
That's 6 places I think are almost certain, Butterfield the most questionable, but if Thorne is missing we definitely need his passing ability in their, I actually quite like the idea of a Thorne/Butterfield partnership.
The left hand side of the team is very much up for grabs, young Callum McDonald impressing last night and throwing his name into the left back discussion as well. At the moment Russell will be in one of the 3 positions behind Martin, Vydra should be, but needs to find form and confidence and though I'm sure Nugent would prefer to be the striker, he's looked capable of playing behind the main striker.
Which clearly shows, why we are being linked with players like Jota and Lawrence, that's the player we need. Arguably 2. Then the fitness of Thorne depends on whether another DM is needed, but if we do sign one, I'd expect maybe 2 out of Johnson, Bryson & Hanson to leave. Otherwise that's 5 players for 2 positions, plus Baird and Wisdom who can play there.

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.
