Derby captain Richard Keogh admits he cannot wait for their tonight's top-of-the-table clash at Bournemouth tonight.
The Rams head to the south coast level on points with Eddie Howe's surprise Sky Bet Championship leaders with only goal difference separating them after both sides ran out winners in Saturday's round of fixtures.
"It's a big game, first versus second, and we are really looking forward to it," he said. "What a game to be involved in, what a game to go there and enjoy. We are in good form, we are confident.
"We know it is going to be a really tough game because Bournemouth play great football as well. Eddie Howe has done a brilliant job there."
