Brayford played for just over an hour as the Rams' development squad drew 0-0 with Coventry at the Ricoh Arena on Monday afternoon.

Although predominantly a right-back, the 25-year-old lined up alongside Michael Jacobs in midfield against the Sky Blues where he played for 63 minutes before being replaced by academy prospect Andy Dales.

Brayford was an ever-present for Derby this season until suffering his injury prior to the npower Championship fixture at league leaders Cardiff at the beginning of March.

Meanwhile, left-back Gareth Roberts played the full 90 minutes against Coventry as he continues to build up his fitness following a calf problem.
