Group position

City currently sit in third place in Group C with three points, from their victory over Derby, from three matches. Derby are bottom of the table with just one point. Colchester lead the group with seven points while Hull City have six points in second.

Who to look out for

City will be happy to see striker Charles Vernam has joined Coventry City on loan. The youngster has already found the net three times against Simon Davies’ side this season following a brace in August before a consolation goal in December’s defeat.

In Vernam's absence, Derby boss Darren Wassall may be looking to 20-year-old Mason Bennett to provide the goal threat.
