Rams sweat over Brayford
Derby manager Nigel Clough will make a late decision about whether to include John Brayford in his squad when the Rams resume Championship action against managerless Hull at Pride Park.
Brayford has been out for just over a month after tearing a thigh muscle in training but the right-back is in the final stages of his rehabilitation and could go straight back into the starting line up.
"We will make a late call on Friday with regards to John," said Clough. "With a thigh injury the biggest thing is kicking the ball again but we hope that won`t be a major issue for him.
"We will be guided by John to a degree as to how he feels, but we have to be careful with him. If he is okay then he will go straight back in ."
Captain Shaun Barker is also close to a return after making his long-awaited comeback from knee surgery with a run-out for the reserves this week. The centre-half played his first 45 minutes since April on Wednesday afternoon along with fellow defender Chris Riggott (Achilles and calf) and midfielder Paul Green (knee).
Forwards Steven Davies (fractured skull), Nathan Tyson (groin), Theo Robinson (hamstring) and defender Russell Anderson (hamstring) were Derby`s other injury absentees prior to the international break. Davies and Anderson will definitely remain on the sidelines and Tyson is unlikely to feature, but Robinson could be fit.
Hull caretaker-manager Nick Barmby could receive a welcome boost for his first game in charge, with Cameron Stewart and Andy Dawson poised to return to the squad.
Winger Stewart has been sidelined since suffering knee ligament damage in February but is expected to be included in Barmby's plans following two reserve-team appearances.
Skipper Dawson is another key player likely to make a timely return following a long injury lay-off. The left-back, out since early September after injuring his knee in training, is hoping to play some part.
Goalkeeper Adriano Basso (tendonitis) missed the home game against West Ham last time out but is fit again and vying with Peter Gulacsi for a place in the starting line-up.
Striker Martyn Waghorn (hamstring), on loan from Leicester, and midfielder Martin Pusic (hip) are still out, as are winger Richard Garcia and midfielder Seyi Olofinjana, who have edged closer to first-team action by returning to training after long-term knee injuries.
Barmby reign starts with win
Nick Barmby made a winning start to his managerial career as Hull beat Derby 2-0 at Pride Park.
First-half goals from Matty Fryatt and the returning Cameron Stewart saw the Tigers roar into the play-off places in the npower Championship.
Both sides went into the game following back-to-back defeats prior to the international break.
After the rest, Derby welcomed back John Brayford. The right-back had been out for over a month after tearing a thigh muscle in training.
Barmby, named as caretaker manager following Nigel Pearson`s return to Leicester this week, was able to call upon Stewart. The winger had been sidelined since suffering knee ligament damage in February.
Hull went ahead after 17 minutes.
Liam Rosenior embarked on a rampaging run down the right before cutting into the penalty area and teeing up Fryatt, who swivelled and shot into the top corner from 12 yards out.
Aaron Mclean drilled wide when he had a half-chance before Stewart - back after a long injury lay-off - extended the lead with his first senior goal in the 23rd minute.
Stewart`s effort from the left-hand side of the area went through Frank Fielding`s hands and into the roof of the net.
Derby would have been back in the game just before half-time had Peter Gulacsi not tipped Ben Davies` curler past the post.
The hosts struggled to create clear chances after the break. Tomasz Cywka had an effort blocked by Jack Hobbs just before the hour mark.
At the other end, Robert Koren saw shots blocked by Mark O`Brien and Jason Shackell.
Stewart sent a 25-yard shot narrowly wide and it was to be the former Manchester United trainee`s final contribution before he was replaced by Robbie Brady after 63 minutes.
Brady made an immediate impact, forcing Fielding into a parrying save with a well-struck effort from the edge of the box.
The Irish teenager then set up Fryatt who should have really done better with his weak header in the 80th minute.
Soon afterwards, Mclean failed to get the connection he desired as he shot wide from 18 yards out.
Koren tried to add a third goal in injury time but his strike from 25 yards out went wide.
