Barker absent once again for Derby

07 December 2009 04:57
Barker is ruled out with a thigh injury, which also kept him out of Saturday's draw with West Brom.

The 27-year-old is also expected to miss Saturday's clash with Watford at Vicarage Road.

The injury to Barker means former Blackburn defender Jay McEveley will deputise once again at centre-half.

However, Clough has better news regarding the fitness of midfielder Paul Green.

Green has been sent for a precautionary scan after complaining of tight hamstrings but will travel with the team.
