Dean Saunders: Derby County will be tough nut to crack
WOLVERHAMPTON Wanderers manager Dean Saunders believes Derby County will be "a tough nut to crack" at Pride Park Stadium today.
The Rams have lost only twice in 15 home games so far this season.
Former Derby striker Saunders said: "It will be a difficult game as Derby are a tough nut to crack.
"They are a young side and they work hard, they play a certain way and they are hard to contain at home.

"They've got a good home record so I've got to get a team on the pitch that are going to stand up to them, hold their ground and come away with three points."
Saunders is wary of Derby's front pairing of Jamie Ward and Conor Sammon, comparing the latter to England international striker Andy Carroll.
He said: "Jamie Ward is on fire at the moment and Conor Sammon is a bit like Andy Carroll, in that he never gives you a minute and he'll chase things down, so I've warned the back four that they've got their hands full."
Saunders is expected to hand a debut to Latvian defender Kaspars Gorkss following his loan move from Reading.
