Injury woes clearing for Clough
The Rams have seven Championship fixtures during the month, starting with Saturday's visit of Watford. Forward Steven Davies (hamstring) and centre-half Dean Leacock (knee) will step up their return to full fitness with a run-out in the reserves on Wednesday afternoon. Lee Hendrie is set to resume full training next week after being out for two months with hamstring and calf problems, while fellow midfielder Gary Teale is nearing a return after sustaining a calf injury at the end of January. In addition, left-back Jay McEveley will be back in contention following suspension when County travel to Reading in a week's time and on-loan defender Javan Vidal is expected to recover from illness. That would leave just Kris Commons (hamstring) and Miles Addison (foot) unavailable during March. "It is a really busy month for us so to potentially have almost everybody available is a massive positive and the competition for places is very healthy. We are just keeping our fingers crossed it stays that way," said Clough.
