Free agent Cisse, formerly of Reading and Bristol City, has been on trial with the Rams for three weeks and has played in two development squad matches against Hull and Middlesbrough.

Derby are short of bodies in midfield with Jeff Hendrick, James Bailey and Ben Davies out injured, and John Eustace will be suspended for the home game against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend after collecting his fifth yellow card of the campaign in the defeat at QPR on Saturday.

However, head coach Steve McClaren says Cisse, 29, is unlikely to be offered a deal.

"He is going to play in the under-21 game at Huddersfield (on Monday) but I don't think we are going to do anything with Kalifa," said McClaren after Derby's 2-1 loss at Loftus Road.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
