Derby County vs Salford City preview
Rooney was positive about his side’s performance at the weekend and was particularly impressed with their reaction when they conceded.
The manager will know that the midweek game against lower-ranked opposition is a chance to build confidence and momentum at the start of a new campaign, although realistically he will be more concerned with the forthcoming clash in the Championship against Peterborough United.
Salford for their part knocked out Championship opposition at this stage of the tournament last season, beating Rotherham on penalties, and they will view Tuesday night’s clash as another chance for an upset which will further help cement their relatively new-found status in professional English football.
