Paul Jewell’s men are travelling to Manchester in search of their first goal away from home, their defender Darren Moore reveals why Derby have plenty of reasons to feel positive.

‘Morale and confidence is what he wanted to tackle first. When your manager leaves, belief can take a nosedive because you’ve been a part of his vision, a vision to get into the Premier League and then stay there. It’s been a bit strange for us, but a new gaffer has come in and it’s important we start to regain belief and confidence in ourselves.

‘People ask me how you go about preparing to play a team like Manchester United. The honest answer is, you just prepare like you would for any other team. I’m not just saying that. Every team in this division has quality. They are no different.

‘United have such an array of talent. That’s why they have achieved so much over so many seasons. We are always going to be facing world class players at the level we are now playing at. Players of international pedigree like Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney. But that`s what makes playing in the Premiership so good.’
