Injury Roundup

There has been mixed news on the injury front ahead of the visit of Norwich City to Pride Park this weekend with two ruled out, one returnee and one long-term injury getting ever closer to a return to the side. In long-term news the ever unlucky Steve Davies looks set to make his comeback over the Christmas period after missing all of the season so far with knee ligament damage picked up in pre-season. Davies will be hoping to make an impact and steer clear of injury for the rest of the season after having made only made fifteen league starts since joining from Tranmere Rovers in 2008 and is now in the final year of his contract. This, coupled with the return of Chris Porter, will be like having two new signings in the squad ahead of the busy festive period although whether either can stay injury free remains to be seen.

Russell Anderson will miss the Norwich game with further hamstring woes having already missed large portions of the season with a groin problem. Alberto Bueno is also set to miss two weeks of action after tweaking a hamstring in the televised defeat to Burnley last weekend although the injury is not as bad as first feared and he should make a swift return to the side. In better news Kris Commons, who missed the Burnley clash, has recovered from his illness and will be back in the squad this weekend. Talking to the official website about his frustration at missing the clash Commons said:

'I was bitterly disappointed to be unwell and miss Burnley, it was not nice sitting on the sofa watching. I would have loved to have been involved, especially as the game was live on TV."
