Cardiff boss Russell Slade will assess striker Kenwyne Jones after the international break but otherwise could field the same side that beat Reading.
Defender Fabio Da Silva (foot) and strikers Federico Macheda (back) and Idriss Saadi (hamstring) remain out but winger Peter Whittingham could return.
Derby head coach Paul Clement is set to name the team that lost to rivals Nottingham Forest last time out.
Injured left-back Max Lowe is his main worry after a setback in his recovery.

Cardiff are unbeaten in their last four trips to Derby in league competition (W2 D2).
Peter Whittingham has scored in two of his last three appearances against Derby at the iPro Stadium.
Derby have won their last four games on home soil keeping three clean sheets in the process.
Cardiff have scored more headed goals this term than any other side (7). Kenwyne Jones has scored with three of his four headed shots on target this season.
Chris Martin has scored or assisted six goals in his last eight appearances at home for Derby (five goals, one assist).
Patient performance, waited for the chance to come and never looked like conceding 5 clean sheets in the last 6 home games. Clement showing he has the tactical nous, and can convey it to the players how to beat these team who come and park the bus.
Second half George Thorne went more further forward and really took the game by the scruff of the neck and won it for us.
