Referee Darren Deadman has been a Football League referee since 2005 working his way up from linesman in the Isthmian League.

Ref Deadman has reffed Fulham once, in the 5-3 away horror collapse at Nottingham Forest in September 2014. He booked 8 players, 6 of them were Fulham players. Ref Deadman last reffed Derby in their 3-0 away win at Reading in October 2014 in which he booked 6 players, four of them were Derby players. Just a slight bias against visiting teams!

Last Season Ref Deadman reffed 33 games dishing out 122 yellows, an above average 3.7 cards a game, and a chart topping 10 reds.

This season he has reffed 21 games so far showing his yellow card 62 times, an average of 3.0 cards per game, and and just 1 red.

Ref Deadman seems to have calmed down this season so far hopefully that continues to be the case on Saturday

Fulham Head Coach Slavisa Jokanovic has a host of new faces at his disposal for Fulham's home clash against Derby.

The Cottagers signed midfield pair Zakaria Labyad and Rohan Ince on loan from Sporting Lisbon and Brighton respectively on transfer deadline day and brought in defender Michael Madl from Sturm Graz.

Centre-back Fernando Amorebieta is also in contention after his loan at Middlesbrough was cut short and the Venezuela international returned to west London early.

Young striker Moussa Dembele saw a proposed move to Tottenham collapse on Monday and he is likely to be involved.

Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann will return to the Derby squad.

Neither player has featured since the FA Cup win at Hartlepool on January 9 but head coach Paul Clement, who began his coaching career at Fulham and spent seven years at the club, will include both on Saturday as he looks at more attacking options.

Clement will make changes after the goalless home draw with Preston in midweek. Bradley Johnson was replaced by Jeff Hendrick in the only change on Tuesday night and he will be pushing for a recall in midfield.

Recent signing Markus Olsson is an option in defence as he awaits his Derby debut while Johnny Russell is also vying for a starting role.
