Derby County fans have delivered their verdict on Wayne Rooney’s starting XI ahead of today’s Championship clash with Bournemouth.

Wayne Rooney’s Derby County return to action for the first time after their second points deduction, leaving them sat on -3 points and at the foot of the Championship table.

Roos; Ebosele, Jagielka, Davies, Buchanan; Bird, Thompson, Shinnie, Knight, Lawrence (C); Baldock.
