Such has been Huddersfield’s form since the start of December that Carlos Corberan would have been disappointed with Friday’s 1-1 draw against Stoke City.
However, given that the Terriers were probably fortunate to remain with 11 players throughout the contest, the Spaniard may be content with their unbeaten record in all competitions being extended to 10 matches.
The stalemate at the John Smith’s Stadium has led to Huddersfield dropping outside of the playoff spots having played one game more than sixth-placed Middlesbrough.
Nevertheless, optimism remains high at the Yorkshire outfit, who now face a run of four fixtures in 10 days in all competitions where they will be regarded as the favourites.
Josh Koroma finally ended his wait for a third league goal against the Potters, the forward registering his first strike since September 14.
Bielik will almost certainly miss out for Derby after the midfielder suffered a shoulder injury when scoring his stunning equaliser against Blues.
With Ravel Morrison still suspended and Kamil Jozwiak joining Bielik in the treatment room, Festy Ebosele is expected to be handed a recall.
Lee Buchanan is also pushing for an opportunity at left-back ahead of Craig Forsyth.
Despite the temptation of reverting to a back three, Corberan should stick with a four-man backline.
However, the Spaniard must decide whether to go with 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, the latter potentially being more likely with Duane Holmes in contention for a start.
Levi Colwill, Alex Vallejo and Rolando Aarons all remain on the sidelines, while Tino Anjorin is unlikely to feature if he joins on loan from Chelsea.
