The second international break of the season is already upon us and with eleven games played Vital Derby take a look at the new signings brought to Pride Park by Nigel Clough.
Clough brought in seven new signings on a permanent basis over the summer and, with four 'emergency` loans added since the transfer window closed, there has been an influx of new players compared to last season`s squad. It`s been an up and down start to the season so far with little consistency in results or team selection and a number of niggling injuries making it difficult for a settled side to develop.
In this third article we take a look at the new striking options:
25 Paul Dickov - Raised a few eyebrows when he was brought in at a time when the rumours of Middlesbrough`s interest in Rob Hulse were beginning to pick up pace. Has found his chances limited to number of substitute appearances and Nigel Clough`s persistence with playing one up front but made his first start against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and did well setting up the opener. Puts in the work and makes a nuisance of himself although his finishing has been wayward since his arrival from Leicester but may benefit from a run in the side after linking up well with Rob Hulse in the 3-0 victory.
31 James Vaughan - Looks as though his stint at Pride Park may be over after an operation to clear up a slight tear in his knee cartilage although his loan has not been cancelled. Added pace to The Rams` frontline and certainly looked to have the capabilities to make a success of this time on loan. Vaughan has had a rough time of things throughout his fledgling career with injuries and this has now struck again with the knee problem.
