Derby County fans have been reacting to today's team news to face Reading.

Phillip Cocu has filed his team-sheet for the clash with the Royals, Derby's first game back at Pride Park Stadium after the coronavirus lockdown suspended elite football for over three months.

The Rams got back to business with a 3-2 win over Millwall last time out and the boss has made just the one change to the side that got revenge on Gary Rowett last weekend.

Chris Martin, fresh from signing a contract extension to the end of the season, starts up front in place of Duane Holmes.

Martyn Waghorn moves out to the wing, occupying Holmes' place at Millwall but otherwise it's as you were.

"Possibly the best lineup we could’ve used," said a third.

"Like it," a fourth fan said. "Holmes on the bench shows how strong the XI is."

"Class lineup," another added.

"What a team," said a sixth fan.
