Derby County host Reading on Saturday knowing they need just a draw to confirm their place in the play-offs thanks to a vastly superior +32 goal difference compared to their rivals. Both Brentford and Wolves can equal them on points, but neither has a chance of matching them on goals.

Manager Steve McLaren also has no new injury problems to deal with. Jake Buxton, Zak Whitbread, and Craig Bryson are all still in the treatment room though. The Rams have gone unbeaten in their last six games after a terrible run of form which saw them drop out of the automatic promotion places. However, they have only won two of those matches.

Meanwhile, the Royals have dropped off alarmingly after it became clear they have no chance of being promoted or relegated. Steve Clarke’s men have lost their last four, and haven’t won in nine. The former West Brom boss could also be without Nathaniel Chalobah, Jamie Mackie, and Pavel Pogrebnyak, all of whom are doubtful for the fixture.
