Nigel Clough is ready to start Nathan Tyson against his former club on Sunday.

Having struggled with a groin injury since leaving the City Ground for Pride Park in the summer the striker inspired a Rams fightback at Barnsley on Tuesday when appearing as a substitute.

"He looked strong physically and a threat and it just highlighted what we have missed in the first half of the season," said Clough, quoted in the Derby Telegraph.

"It was a big boost towards Sunday's game.

"Nathan is getting close to a start."
