The Pride Park fixture was initially due to be staged on Saturday, July 18 but the game has been shifted to the Sunday due to United's mid-week hosting of Barnsley also being moved for Sky Sports coverage to a 5pm kick-off on Thursday, July 17.

The contest between the Rams and Whites has not surprisingly also been picked for live Sky Sports broadcast.

Sky had also initially picked United's forthcoming clash at Swansea City this Sunday for live broadcast but had to drop the game due to avoid exceeding the maximum number of times they can screen a club's games live during the course of the season.
