    Derby v Swansea

    Steve Cooper will be tempted to rotate the players again for this game, although there is one player who has played in every game this season, full back Connor Roberts.
    Confidence will be high after the latest win at Cardiff and no goals conceded in the last three games.
    Derby are unbeaten in the last five games with 1 win and 4 draws as they try and claw their way back to safety, and away from the relegation dogfight, under the temporary charge of Wayne Rooney and Leroy Rosenior.
    They are still to win at home this season though with 4 draws and 5 defeats, but Rooney has tightened their defence with no goals conceded in the last three games, same as Swansea.
    I expect a tight match.

    We should be winning games like this if we want promotion. All the best sides are built on a solid defence and we’ve got that this season.
    I’m concerned we do not score enough goals though, hopefully the owners will rectify that in the January transfer window.
    Stats show that this will be a game of two tight defences, but football is unpredictable.

    I see Steve Cooper has been fined 3,500 by the FA after speaking out after the Sheff Wed game about the biased refereeing by Andy Woolmer.
    He didn’t give the hand ball penalty and disallowed the last minute goal, blowing up for a foul on their goalkeeper when there was no Swans player near him as replays showed.
    Cooper had already asked before the game to replace Woolmer due to previous problems with him in charge but the FA ignored him.
    You just can’t win with these people in charge. The ref should have been reprimanded and demoted for a few matches, instead he’s allowed to carry on with his inept refereeing.
