Team news: Derby County unchanged for Birmingham City clash, Kieron Freeman and Mark O'Brien return to the bench
DERBY County manager Nigel Clough has named an unchanged starting line-up for today's Championship encounter with Birmingham City at St Andrew's (3pm).
Clough has kept faith with the side that held league leaders Cardiff City to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday night.
That means Albanian Under-21 international Valentin Gjokaj continues at right-back after making his full debut in South Wales.
Defenders Keiron Freeman (ankle) and Mark O'Brien (knee) are fit enough to return to the bench as Clough this time uses his full allocation of seven substitutes.

Derby are still without John Brayford (hamstring), Craig Bryson (groin), Jamie Ward (hamstring), Will Hughes (groin) and James O'Connor (knee) due to injury.

Midfielder Wade Elliott replaces injured defender Mitchell Hancox (hamstring), with Shane Ferguson expected to drop to left-back.
