Derby v West Brom: Play-off payback

We all remember the pain and the disappointment as Billy Davies's Derby side popped up at Wembley and snatched the promotion play-off place from right under our noses. Editors and Baggies never forget!

Vital Quotes:

"I do expect a very hard game. Derby have gained 18 points of the 20 they have from home games - almost all their points. It`s going to be tough as well in front of their 30,000 fans.' Robert Di Matteo

Derby Team News:

Nigel Clough is confident that defender Shaun Barker will be able to shake off a thigh problem for the game on Saturday.

Player to watch: Rob Hulse

Former Albion man Rob Hulse has been banging in the goals again and could be a real threat up front for Derby.

West Brom Team News:

Filipe Teixeira has been given the all-clear following a scan on his thigh/groin problem. The Portuguese winger is available for Saturday's game, as are Joe Mattock and Jerome Thomas.

Player to watch: Jonas Olsson

Albion have the joint-second best defensive record in the division and adding to last weeks' clean sheet will be vital. Olsson will be the key to keeping the Rams' attack at bay.
