Craig Bryson: Recovering from a thigh injury

The duo missed Derby's 1-0 win over Bournemouth at the iPro Stadium on Saturday with minor injuries.

But first-team coach Paul Simpson is optimistic Bryson, who has been struggling with a thigh injury, and Ward, who is receiving treatment on a hamstring injury, will both return to training by the end of the week and be available for selection this weekend.

Simpson told the club's website: "We're hopeful of having Craig and Jamie available for Saturday's game.

"We're still very early in the week but they've done some light work already.

"Our preparations will increase as the week progresses and we hope they'll be able to join in training with the rest of the squad in the next few days."

He added: "They're two important players for us so it would be nice to have them back."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
