Derby County have been handed a fitness boost ahead of the visit of Rovers with news that attacking pair Kamil Jozwiak and Jack Marriott have both trained in the lead-up to the game.

Both were forced off in last weekend’s defeat at Luton Town with Polish winger Jozwiak making his debut for the club after a summer switch from Lech Poznan.

The 22-year-old had been on Rovers’ radar in January, only for the asking price to prove beyond them, and Derby making their move in the summer window.

Marriott was forced off moments after scoring in the 2-1 defeat, a third consecutive loss for Phillip Cocu’s side who are looking for their first points of the season.

Both now look set to be in a position to feature against Rovers, but Tom Lawrence, Martyn Waghorn and Kristian Bielik all remain out.

"If they don't have any reactions tomorrow (Friday) then they are available for Saturday, so that is a relief," Cocu told Derbyshire Live.

"Of course, we need Jack because we do not have a lot of options in the striker position.

"Also, to have a new signing (Jozwiak) injured after his first game would not have been a positive thing. So we are happy they could train again."

Winger Duane Holmes could return to the squad however, having not played since the Carabao Cup win over Barrow on September 5.

Jordon Ibe, signed as a free agent this week after leaving Bournemouth, is also unlikely to be considered as Cocu runs the rule over the 24-year-old in training.
