I expect Ellis to be back for this and Ojo which would be a huge boost. Should be a decent game if the pitch thaws out we generally perform in these games so hopefully be good for a point at home.I'm hoping the game is off to be honest. We're not in any sort of form as we've barely played . 3 or 4 of our better players out injured and we've still brought no new faces in. Derby on a roll and look to be a different beast since last time we played them. It could get messy.
Our home form is dire but we are doing better now under Jackson than we have any time previously this season. Eisa has just scored a brace. Leko seemed to fit in OK and hopefully Jackson has now decided that Grigg is past his sell by date.Franchise away for us.
We head into this one on the back of two consecutive four goal wins so with confidence being sky high, Cotterill should name an unchanged team yet again. Good opportunity to extend our winning run to three here and keep our slight play off hopes alive.
Franchise 0-1 Salop (Saydee)
Seems a lot of your fans aren't as sympathetic, including one demanding compensation on TwitterYeah I've seen pal. Shame but it is what it is.

Another has also asked why we didn't turn on our undersoil heating - which is also brilliant.
Seriously though, it's barely been above 0 over the past 10 days or so and the pitch covers shouldn't be on for more than a few days at a time. By all accounts about 80% of the pitch is fine, but it's the bit in front of the away end that's solid. Just one of those things.
Personally, I'm glad it's off for a few reasons, 1. It's bloody freezing, 2. I'm due to be out nearly every night this week, so it gives me a bit of leeway from the wife, and 3. It gives us a bit of a break from playing teams at the top of the League.
