    Derby 1-0 West Brom

    Back at Pride Park, Derby's Lee Buchanan has been treated for a knock, but he's carrying on. The Rams still lead thanks to Martyn Waghorn's early penalty.

    West Brom's Darnell Furlong has headed narrowly wide with the visitors' best chance to equalise so far.

  4. Bury latest: Shakers given Tuesday extension

    Bury FC

    BBC Radio Manchester has just been told the club have been given an extension until Tuesday 17:00 BST to complete the sale and avoid being expelled by the EFL

    The club were waiting to hear if a last-ditch offer to buy the League One club would save them from being expelled from the English Football League.

    Owner Steve Dale told BBC Radio Manchester he had agreed a deal with analytics company C&N Sporting Risk, led by Henry Newman and Rory Campbell yesterday.

    Bury had been given until 23:59 BST on Friday to prove their financial viability.

    For the sixth time this season the Shakers have seen a fixture suspended and they are yet to play a game in any competition this campaign.

  5. SUBSTITUTION (West Brom)

    Derby 1-0 West Brom

    Left-back Kieran Gibbs has a knock and he's coming off. The Baggies bring Darnell Furlong on instead.

  6. CLOSE!

    Derby 1-0 West Brom

    Nice build-up play from the Rams leads to Jack Marriott feeding a neat ball through to Tom Lawrence in the area, but his shot under pressure flies just wide.

  7. Rovers take the lead

    Doncaster 1-0 Lincoln

    In the EFL's other game Doncaster have just taken the lead against Lincoln in League One through Niall Ennis.

    The Wolves loanee steadies himself before firing the ball into the top corner. Good finish!

  8. Post update

    Derby 1-0 West Brom

    The unbeaten Baggies have responded well to falling behind. Nathan Ferguson goes on a great run down the right, but his powerful low shot is saved by the feet of Rams goalkeeper Kelle Roos.

  9. Post update

    Derby 1-0 West Brom

    Martyn Waghorn

    The Rams have had three penalties already this season, and Martyn Waghorn has been making up for his miss in their first one of the campaign, against Swansea a fortnight ago.

    He's since netted two in a row from the spot.

  10. GOAL: Derby 1-0 West Brom

    Martyn Waghorn, pen

    Cool as you like from Martyn Waghorn, who sends the keeper the wrong way and opens the scoring.

    It's his third goal of the season, and his second from the penalty spot.


    Derby 0-0 West Brom

    Martyn Waghorn is brought down by Kieran Gibbs and that's a clear penalty to Derby!

    Waghorn will take it himself...

  12. Post update

    Derby 0-0 West Brom

    There are an unusually-high number of empty seats around Pride Park, which is normally pretty packed. You can only assume the television coverage has had an impact there, as well as school holidays.

    But the atmosphere is still pretty decent and the home side have started brightly...

  13. Lincoln target mission Imp-ossible

    Doncaster 0-0 Lincoln

    Danny Cowley

    We also have an early game in League One today with second-placed Lincoln travelling to Doncaster.

    The Imps, who won the League Two title last season, are looking for back-to-back promotions and the chance to play in the second tier of English football for the first time since 1960-61.

    They face a Doncaster side who are coming off the back of a late winner in a 3-2 win over Fleetwood last time out.

    It's also 0-0 there, in the very early stages.

  14. KICK-OFF

    Derby 0-0 West Brom

    The Baggies have opted to change ends, so they'll be attacking towards their own fans in the second half.

    The hosts Derby get the game going, and immediately force a corner.

  15. Post update

    Derby v West Brom (12:30 BST)

    The players are out at Pride Park and the travelling army of West Brom fans are singing The Lord's My Shepherd, loud and proud as usual.

    Kick-off is coming up next, on this warm summer's afternoon.

  16. Post update

    Derby v West Brom (12:30 BST)

    Martyn Waghorn

    The Rams will be hoping for a repeat of the last time the Baggies visited Pride Park in May.

    Needing a win to secure a place in the play-offs the hosts registered a 3-1 victory to seal sixth place.

    There's been a bit of change at both clubs since then, not least in the dugout - with the Rams then under the management of Frank Lampard and West Brom under caretaker James Shan.

  17. Baggies team news

    Derby v West Brom (12:30 BST)

    West Brom hand first-team returns to Nathan Ferguson, Kyle Edwards and Kenneth Zohore, while striker Charlie Austin is on the bench.

    West Brom XI: Johnstone, Ferguson, Bartley, Ajayi, Gibbs, Livermore, Sawyers, Phillips, Krovinovic, Edwards, Zohore.

    Subs: Bond, O'Shea, Furlong, Brunt, Diangana, Pereira, Austin.

  18. Derby team news - Marriott starts

    Derby v West Brom (12:30 BST)

    Derby hand a first league start of the season to striker Jack Marriott, after he came off the bench to score in their defeat against Bristol City on Tuesday.

    Derby XI: Roos, Bielik, Keogh, Dowell, Waghorn, Lawrence, Marriott, Lowe, Knight, Huddlestone, Buchanan.

    Subs: Hamer, Shinnie, Paterson, Clarke, Evans, Bennett, Malone.

  19. Post update

    Derby v West Brom (12:30 BST)
