Max Bird opens the scoring for Derby County against Shrewsbury Town at Pride Park.

With a full week to prepare for their Saturday (3pm) matchup against Cambridge United, Derby County will look to secure the first of two victories needed to guarantee their promotion to the Championship.

The Rams defeated Leyton Orient 3-0 over the weekend to take a four-point lead over Portsmouth in the race for automatic promotion, while Portsmouth managed a 1-1 draw at Bolton, who are currently in third place.

With six points securing their return to the Championship, Derby is now clear on what they need to do. Meeting Cambridge, who are currently under Garry Monk’s management, is the first event on the schedule.

Paul Warne, head coach of Derby, commented after the team’s victory over Orient, “It is great,” despite having some injuries to deal with. This is the first. We now own a club record for points, we’re very near a record for wins away from home, and there have been no injuries in a League One match. Everyone is doing well and content.”

Here is the most recent list of players who are unavailable.

Elder Callum

After an inconsistent season due to injuries, the Australian defender is once again out of action. Elder sustained a groin injury during the victory over Bolton. Warne hinted at his impending comeback last week.

Joe Ward

A hit to his knee forced Ward to leave the game in the second half of the 2-2 draw at Portsmouth. Warne acknowledged that he might not play for the remainder of the season. May require a small operation.

Max Bird

Bird is scheduled to resume full training today after missing Wednesday’s match against Wycombe. Should return for Cambridge, which will be really beneficial.

Gayle Dwight

After hobbling out of the match against Bolton in the first half, the striker was transported for a scan. We’re hoping he can return before the season ends.

Craig Forsyth

Another calf injury had many fearing the defender would miss the remainder of the year, but the veteran Scot is getting better. According to Warne, he will not be returning for another seven to ten days.

Ryan Nyambe

The Namibian player hurt his quad during the match against Charlton, and as a result, he is out for the season. He had surgery, which regrettably means that his campaign is done.

John-Jules Tyreece

The attacker for Arsenal, who is on loan, hurt his hamstring against Reading. He is back on the grass and, if his rehabilitation goes well, he might play again for Derby before the season ends. Warne stated today that he is waiting for the next event and that a comeback is not out of the question.

Rooney Jake

Despite suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage in the September loss to Bolton, the center-back is healing very well. slated to get a second scan on his knee; if everything checks out, he might resume participating in some first-team training.
