Daniel Farke: Derby are dangerous opposition

"Phillip Cocu has experienced everything in his career. He knows how to stay calm and show a reaction. I would prefer to play this game when Derby weren't under as much pressure, because they'll be switched on and motivated to show a performance.

"To be a work in progress and thrown into the cold water, he's proven already he can swim."

The boss gave us his thoughts on our opponents in his pre-match press conference at Lotus Training Centre on Friday afternoon!
