Great news for Derby County ahead of trip to Fulham on Saturday

Published

on

Derby County boss Gary Rowett has provided fans with a full injury update ahead of his side’s return to action following the international break, in an interview with the club’s official website.

The 43-year-old confirmed that midfielder Joe Ledley would be available for selection following a hamstring injury that forced him to miss Derby’s defeat to Reading, expressing his delight that the injury was not aggravated whilst on international duty with Wales.

There was also good news surrounding captain Richard Keogh, with the October nominee for the Player of the Month award given the green light for the trip to Fulham, after being forced off in the opening minutes of the Reading tie.

Tom Lawrence is expected to be available after picking up a knock in Wales draw with Panama this week, and Bradley Johnson should be on the team bus despite a rib injury suffered in training on Tuesday.

Despite the positive update, Jonny Russell was confirmed as a doubt, after the winger felt his hamstring twinge in training on Tuesday, leaving him unable to train ahead of the weekend’s tie.

The Verdict

Despite Russell’s knock, this injury update will delight Rams fans, with several key men available for the big clash with the Cottagers in West London.

Ledley and Keogh will be a huge addition to the Rams squad, as will Lawrence and Johnson, with the quartet all set to push for a spot in the starting XI at Craven Cottage.

Derby enjoyed an excellent October in which they enjoyed a 100% record, and will look to return to winning ways against Slavisa Jokanovic’s struggling side following their disappointing home defeat to Reading.
