Derby take on Portsmouth on Wednesday 12th August, 2015, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1 .

Two of the bigger clubs outside the Premier League meet in the first round of the 2015/16 Capital One Cup, but while their histories are similarly starry Portsmouth and Derby are in two different places right now. The Rams nearly went up last year to the big time, while Portsmouth aren’t even a Championship club at this point in time, making this both a clash of titans and potential giant-killing.

Of course you’d favour Derby for their ability and the depth they can call upon, but Pompey players have been through hell and back in recent years, and will back themselves here.
