Craig Forsyth set for long-awaited Rams return

Craig Forsyth could make his Derby comeback against Grimsby after 10 months out.

The defender suffered a serious knee injury last November but is in contention for the EFL Cup clash at the iPro Stadium.

Marcus Olsson will again sit out with the defender struggling with the concussion he suffered in a pre-season win over Sheffield United.

Andreas Weimann remains sidelined for a few weeks with a knee problem and Jacob Butterfield (thigh) is still doubtful but Abdoul Razzagui is closing in on a comeback.

Josh Gowling is banned for the Mariners.

The defender was shown a straight red card during Saturday's opening-day victory over Morecambe.

Craig Disley will also miss out as he continues to recover from concussion, along with Zak Mills (hamstring).

Rhys Browne was an unused substitute against the Shrimps after passing a late fitness test and is pushing for a starting spot against the Rams.
