Paul Coutts is expected to be fit for Derby's final game of the season against Millwall at Pride Park.
Coutts missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Blackpool with a thigh problem but the midfielder has resumed light training and should return to the squad on Saturday.
Will Hughes replaced Coutts at Bloomfield Road and the teenager suffered no ill-effects following his first start in over two months after a groin injury.
Adam Legzdins will continue in goal despite Frank Fielding's return from suspension, although the latter is expected to come back into the squad.
Gareth Roberts will probably start against the Lions in what will be his final appearance for Derby.
The veteran left-back, 35, is out of contract in the summer and will not be offered a new deal.
Millwall will be without James Henry for their final-day trip.
Henry limped off during the first half of Tuesday night's goalless draw with Crystal Palace after suffering a hamstring injury and joins fellow winger Chris Taylor (groin) on the sidelines.
On-loan Rams striker Nathan Tyson cannot play against his parent club and boss Kenny Jackett has lost patience with Rob Hulse and Dany N'Guessan following some poor displays - the latter came on as a substitute against the Eagles and was hauled off just 12 minutes later.
But Palace loanee Jermaine Easter returns after he was ineligible in midweek and will vie with Andy Keogh, Shaun Batt and John Marquis for spots in attack.
Midfielder Liam Trotter's ongoing knee problem will be checked over while defender Paul Robinson remains sidelined by a groin injury.
