The people will gather at the chapel of faith on Tuesday night, Men, Women and Children will unite in one common faith.

Fingers will be crossed and prayers said, unbelievers will have no place in our thoughts.

One voice will lead us forward, we are Derby, we are Derby, Super Derby, Super rams, we are Derby, Super Derby, we are Derby, Super Rams.

Team news - Reading

Steve Coppell awaits news on Noel Hunt's ankle injury picked up against Barnsley on Saturday. Kevin Doyle is also receiving treatment on a knee ligament problem. If neither are fit, Shane Long would start.

James Harper (groin) is still ruled out, but Brynjar Gunnarsson is closer to a return if required. Kalifa Cisse, Glen Little and Marek Matejovsky are all available to start if Coppell decides to change his midfield.

Ivar Ingimarsson is a long-term absentee and skipper Graeme Murty is only just back in full training.Team news - Derby

Luke Varney is back in the Rams' squad after a loan spell with Sheff Wed, and the striker signed off with two goals for the Owls in their weekend win over Southampton.

On loan Arsenal man Nacer Barazite is back after an illness and could come in if Nigel Clough shakes things up after their 1-0 weekend loss at ten-man Crystal Palace.

Dean Leacock (groin), Paul Green, Steve Davies, Miles Addison, Jay McEveley (all foot), Chris Porter (hip), and Ruben Zadkovich (groin) all remain out.

Form - Reading

The Royals have only won four games since the turn of the year, but they have been on a OK run away from home.

Their last away defeat was at Swansea back in January, and since then they have not lost in seven games on their travels, winning two and drawing the remainder.

Form - Derby

The Rams had a four-game winning run in the League soon after Nigel Clough took over, but since then they have only picked up two victories out of eleven. Their last home win was at the start of March against Bristol City.
