Both teams to score – yes

Derby County will be able to relax with McGoldrick back among the goals.

David McGoldrick to score anytime

David McGoldrick is back in the goals and he has now scored in consecutive matches. The 35-year-old was on the scoresheet in emphatic fashion back in October when he claimed the hat-trick against Bristol.
