Team news: Chris Martin handed full Derby County debut against Crystal Palace
CHRIS Martin will make his full debut for Derby County against Crystal Palace at Pride Park Stadium tonight (7.45pm).
The on-loan striker, who had a spell with Palace last season, replaces Michael Jacobs in the Rams starting line-up as manager Nigel Clough makes three changes to his side following last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Watford.
Gareth Roberts returns at left-back after serving his three-match ban and centre-half Jake Buxton is fit enough to start following a knee injury.
That allows John Brayford to reverts to right-back, so Ben Davies and Michael Hoganson drop to the bench, having shaken off groin and hip problems respectively.
