Derby County are in the midst of a fine run of form, with Saturday’s demolition of promotion rivals Middlesbrough at The Riverside Stadium, ensuring Gary Rowett’s side moved into the top-six.
The Rams endured a shaky start to the new campaign following the double loss of Tom Ince and Will Hughes to the Premier League in the summer, but with new signings including Tom Lawrence beginning to settle, the club are beginning to look like the real deal.
The good news keeps on flooding in at Pride Park, with midfielder George Thorne declaring on Twitter that he was ‘looking forward to the game tomorrow’, in reference to the visit of Ipswich Town.
Thorne has been plagued by injuries after joining the club from West Brom in 2013, making just 38 league appearances in over three years at the club.
Returning from his latest set-back, the classy midfielder has excited fans on social media, who are jubilant to hear of their midfield maestro returning to the squad…
