O'Connor, 28, has been sidelined since the end of January after damaging ligaments in training.

The versatile defender played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday as the Rams' Under-21 side lost 2-1 to Coventry at Pride Park.

O'Connor, signed from Doncaster last summer, is a right-back by trade but his best performances for Derby have been at centre-back and he has also starred at left-back for Nigel Clough's side.
