Whilst numbers may be worryingly light within the Derby County camp, you can’t help but admire their resilience and Wayne Rooney’s side proved during their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield last weekend that they certainly won’t be pushovers this season even with their depleted personnel.
Victory on penalties over Salford in the Carabao Cup midweek was a further boost to the Rams and they travel to a Peterborough side who have endured a nightmare start to the new campaign.
A heavy 3-0 defeat away at Luton in their first Championship game of the season was compounded by a 0-4 Carabao Cup thrashing at the hands of League One Plymouth in midweek.
With confidence surely hit hard within the home squad and their newly promoted side perhaps needing time to adjust to the step up in quality, Derby are more than capable of accruing at least another point in their first away league game, so consider them double chance.
Summer signing Jack Marriott is a doubt for Saturday’s return to Championship action, while Siriki Dembele has already been ruled out of the match against the Rams.
That leaves Jonson Clarke-Harris as Posh’s only fit striker and he is short of match fitness after a summer spent recovering from calf and knee problems. Posh signed midfielder Oliver Norburn from Shrewsbury this week and he should be involved.

Derby will assess Lee Buchanan (thigh) ahead of the trip to the Weston Homes Stadium. Kornell McDonald (hamstring) will not be ready for Saturday but is expected to be available before the end of the month.
Jason Knight (ankle) and Krystian Bielik (knee) remain longer-term absentees for Rams boss Wayne Rooney. Ravel Morrison is expected to make his league debut for the club after scoring a superb goal on his first appearance in the EFL Cup win against Salford.
