Coach Andy Garner has set Derby's players the target of winning their remaining two Championship games to match last season's points tally.
The Rams won 64 points during the 2011/12 campaign to finish 12th, their highest placing in five years.
Garner's team are currently 11th in the table with 58 points following Saturday's 3-1 win over Peterborough at Pride Park.
Garner hopes Derby can finish the season on a high with victories at Blackpool and at home to Millwall, and hopefully clinch at top-10 finish in the process.
"There is no way the players are going to relax and think it is job done, no way are we going to allow that," said Garner following the win over Posh.
"We have two more games and we want two more victories. We want to finish on 64 points. That's the number we got last season and it would be great if we could match that total.
"We have got a chance of a top-10 finish and we are going to give everything we've got to try and do it. We want to finish as high as we possibly can."
It will be the official's first match involving Chelsea since last autumn's racism row involving John Obi Mikel.
Clattenburg was accused of using "inappropriate language" towards Mikel but was cleared by the Football Association.
The matter arose from the Blues' fiery clash with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on October 28 with Chelsea making a complaint based on reports from their players.
Clattenburg did not referee for four weeks while the FA investigated but the governing body determined the official had no case to answer.
Police also dropped their separate inquiry and Chelsea later issued a statement expressing regret at the way it was handled.
Since resuming duties, Clattenburg has been eligible to referee Chelsea but five months have passed before being appointed to another fixture involving the London club by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited.
Chelsea have no issue with the appointment and are ready to welcome Clattenburg back to Stamford Bridge.
In a joint statement issued with the Premier League and PGMOL last November, the club said: "Chelsea FC made it clear they would welcome Mark Clattenburg back to Stamford Bridge in the future and PGMOL would have no issue in appointing him to a Chelsea FC match going forward."
