Derby County will remain rooted to the bottom of the Championship table even if they come away with all three points from their visit to Coventry today. It's been a reasonable start to the season for the Rams so far but their points deduction weighs heavy. As for Coventry, there's all to play for. Make sure you know how to watch a Coventry City vs Derby County live stream wherever you are in the world.

The team news is in and Derby's Ryan Allsop is absent with illness, while Jason Knight misses out with a slight muscle problem. Kelle Roos and Festy Ebosele come into the Rams' starting line-up. Coventry Manager Mark Robins has made three changes: Matty Godden returns to the starting XI, as does Jake Clarke-Salter, while Ben Sheaf starts in midfield for Liam Kelly.

Wayne Rooney's side haven't looked too bad on the pitch so far. Without the 12 points lost for the club going into administration, Derby would be in a not-too-terrible 16th position and looking towards steadying the ship and Championship safety. Instead, they'll need at least two more wins to start climbing the table.

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has an altogether more pleasant manager's headache to deal with, with four fit and in-form strikers ready to play. It's the goals against column where more work is needed, though. The Sky Blues have a goal difference of just three. The three sides above them have that stat in double figures.

It's a 3pm BST kick-off (10am ET) today, Saturday 23rd October. Read on to find out how to watch a Coventry vs Derby live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Coventry vs Derby live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Coventry vs Derby rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Coventry vs Derby, you may wish to choose 'Australia' to access Kayo Sport.

3. Then head over to Kayo on your browser or device and enjoy a Coventry vs Derby stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
