Derby opened their pre-season account with a 1-0 win at League Two newcomers Burton.
Nigel Clough took his Rams side back to old club and watched Chris Porter grabbed the only goal of the game in the 19th minute, heading home Patrick Kisnorbo`s goalbound effort from Dean Moxey`s corner.
Clough fielded a completely changed XI in each half, with the exception of trialists Kisnorbo and Mark Fotheringham who played the entire 90 minutes.
