Manager Wayne Rooney made five changes to the squad that beat Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night in Sky Bet Championship clash against Watford (kick off at 7.45pm)

One of those changes was forced when Matt Clarke, who suffered a blow against the Chairboys, misses and is replaced by George Edmundson, who joined the Rangers club on deadline day earlier in the month

Edmundson impressed as a second-half substitute at Adams Park and will team up with Andre Wisdom at the back after scoring his first professional league goal in the dying minutes of Tuesday’s game

Elsewhere, Nathan Byrne and Lee Buchanan return to right-back and left-back respectively as Teden Mengi, who made his debut against Wycombe, and Craig Forsyth return to the substitutes bench

There’s also a first start for winger Patrick Roberts, who also joined Derby on Manchester City’s Deadline Day.The winger enjoyed a cameo midweek, winning the free kick on which Wisdom finally scored

Max Bird is the latest change for Derby as Lee Gregory and Kamil Jozwiak both move onto the bench
