Kamil Jozwiak’s return to form ahead of Derby County Championship clash against Queens Park Rangers increases attacking options and gives manager Phillip Cocu a dilemma
The first three of Wayne Rooney, Tom Lawrence and Martyn Waghorn in the 3-4-3 Derby lineup caused problems for Bournemouth in the first half on Saturday
Does Cuckold stick to the three or remember Jozwiak, who missed the game this weekend with an ankle injury? If Jozwiak returns, who gives way?
Lawrence has made four straight starts since returning from a long spell with a shoulder injury and it seemed to catch up with him after an hour at Bournemouth Should we give it a break?
Playing with three center-backs and full-backs as well as the central midfielder duo of Graeme Shinnie and Jason Knight helped Derby on the defensive They seemed a much tighter unit than what we saw in the three Premier League matches against Reading, Luton Town and Blackburn Rovers
Is Cocu sticking to the lineup or going back to a 4-2-3-1 in which he can fit the trio of Jozwiak, Rooney and Lawrence behind Waghorn? Derby needs a win, they need to take the game to QPR
Shinnie and Knight’s energetic double shield midfielder was a big plus in a tough start to the season, but he tends to be more effective in away games than at home, which doesn’t is not surprising given that the responsibility lies at home side to bring the game to the opponents
Is Cuckold watching this and maybe moving Rooney to the midfielder position he held last season? You would lose energy and legs doing this, but gain more control over the ball and potentially increase creativity The Rams have only scored once in four home league games, they need more of creativity
Does Rooney pass between Shinnie and Knight in more of a 4-3-3 with Jozwiak, Waghorn and Lawrence as the top three?

A switch to a rear four would mean Nathan Byrne and Lee Buchanan would be used as full-backs rather than full-backs, as they seem better suited to a full-back role, and the balance of a pair of rear center in rear four is crucial
Or does Jozwiak start off the bench, ready to inject more attack threat after about an hour when the contest opens?
