It’s a frustrating time to be a football supporter, with recent off-the-field events calling a halt to fixtures across the globe.
No scheduled return date has been put in place as of yet by the EFL, as they wait for an update from the relevant authorities before making a decision, with the health of the public being the most important matter.
Derby County will be hoping that they can pick up where they left off when football does return, with Phillip Cocu’s side well in contention to challenge for a top-six finish.
The Rams have won their last two league matches, which has seen them move up to 12th in the Championship table. More importantly though, they’re just five points adrift of the play-off places with just nine games remaining in this year’s campaign.
One player that will be hoping the break from competitive action can be a blessing in disguise is Kelle Roos, who has struggled for consistent game time this season with Derby.
The shot-stopper has been restricted to 23 appearances this season for the Rams, and will be keen to get back into the starting XI at the earliest of opportunities.
Roos took to Instagram to issue his thoughts during the lockdown period currently imposed on the UK, and revealed that he is excited to get back playing again.

He’ll be keen to showcase his talent at the earliest of opportunities.
Roos has found game time hard to come by with Phillip Cocu’s side this season, and he’ll know that he needs to up his performance levels soon.
He’s shown that he can perform to the required standard in the Championship, but with Ben Hamer impressing recently, he’s found himself having to be content with a place on the substitutes bench.
It’s going to be an interesting few weeks ahead for Roos, as he looks to fight for his long-term future with Derby County.
