Finally after 7 months out Captain Shaun Barker is in contention for the Derby County Squad following his injury comeback in the reserves game yesterday.
John Brayford has been out for around a month and Nigel Clough will take a late fitness check on him to see if he will take part in Saturday’s home clash with Hull City, under the caretaker management of Nick Barmby after Nigel Pearson left for Leicester. Paul Green is also contention after recovering from injury along with Chris Riggott. Barker, Green and Riggott should all be available for Saturday.
Prediction for Saturday’s game with Hull-
Derby County are expecting to attract a crowd of above 30,000 with tickets selling fast. Both teams are level on points in the table with the Rams just being ahead on goals scored in 8th place. Key players returning from injuries will hand the Rams a boost. In last seasons Pride Park encounter the Tigers won 1-0 to a out of form Derby side. I’m going for a 2-1 Derby win but certainly a tough game. Come on you Rams !
