Both teams are showing identical form heading in the game having picked up 13 points from their last 6 games.
The two club’s will be fully focused on promotion after they crashed out of the FA Cup to Premier League sides last weekend with Chelsea downing the Rams 2-0 thanks to goals from John Obi Mikel and Oscar while Leicester also conceded two goals in their defeat to Stoke.
Seven points separates the pair in the table, although Steve McClaren will focus on the fact that his side, currently fourth in the table, are just three points off the second automatic place.
Home form has been the key to Leicester surge to the summit. The club has collect 29 points from 36 in their 12 games to date and having beaten QPR and drawn with Burnley in recent weeks they will be out to put another promotion rival to the sword.
Nigel Pearson’s side have already beaten Derby twice this season.
When the two sides met in August Leicester won 1-0 thanks to a Lee Grant own goal and they repeated that feat in September knocking Derby out of the Capital One cup thanks to late goal from Danny Drinkwater.
Derby have improved since then however losing just four times in their last 15 games.
The club have suffered a small blip so far in 2014 losing both their games so far.
While the cup defeat to Chelsea would have been expected, the surprise defeat at home to Wigan would not have been, despite the Latics recent resurgence under new manager Uwe Rosler.
Despite the setbacks the level of performances have been most pleasing to McClaren with the former England man urging his side to build on the performance against Chelsea and secure automatic performance, starting against Leicester.
“The remaining 22 games are all vital in terms of where we want to be. We have got ourselves into a good position.” McClaren told the Derby Telegraph.
“The players have set the standard and the fans, ourselves and the players themselves expect that every week.
“Our belief must grow following the Chelsea game.
“The players experienced the occasion and we want more of it. We want that every week.”
Of Leicester he added “It will be a tough game, a different game. Can we handle that?”
