The Derby County left-back picked up the knock in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Cardiff City, which forced him to be replaced just before the half-hour mark.

Rams boss Nigel Clough says the 34-year-old will have his fitness assessed closely ahead of the weekend trip to the King Power Stadium.

"Gareth's calf tightened up so we made sure we got him off pretty quickly," Clough told the club's website.

"We're hopeful hasn't pulled or strained it as he's had something similar to this situation before.

"He'll get some time with the medical team in the next few days to hopefully ease things down a little in his calf and get him in contention for Saturday's game, all being well."

Former Welsh international Roberts has made 17 appearances for Derby this season.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
