Wayne Rooney is expected to make his long-awaited debut in the match, though he is unlikely to start.

Barnsley sit 23rd in the table but have given their fans plenty to be optimistic about during an ongoing five-game unbeaten streak.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…

Derby have struggled for consistency all season but desperately need to exploit home matches against those below them.

Rooney may not provide a direct impact given that he hasn’t played weekly football since September, but his presence – likely from the bench – should give the Rams a lift in this one.
