What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it’ll be all smiles or disappointment when this tie is done.

Due to a previous postponement in Derby’s first round tie it caused a delay in this all-Championship second round meeting with Barnsley at Oakwell.

The Tykes have made a solid start but the Rams will head into this game having recorded a resounding league win over Hull – playing in the Premier League last season – on Friday so should have plenty of confidence.

A third round tie against Premier League side Tottenham, which will be played at Wembley, awaits the winner.
