Addison: Foot injury

Addison: Foot injury

Adam Pearson on Wednesday stepped down as chairman of football after two years at the club, being replaced by Tom Glick, who was already chief executive and president.

But more pressing matters are at hand on the pitch as the Rams travel to Portman Road looking to arrest an alarming run of form that has seen them lose seven of their last 10 games - slumping to 19th in the process.

However, they will have to do so without the services of Miles Addison (foot), Kris Commons (hamstring), Paul Green (foot), Jay McEveley (cheekbone), Ben Pringle (knee) and Mark O'Brien. Chris Porter (hip) and Giles Barnes (Achilles) also remain long-term absentees.

Manager Nigel Clough also has doubts over defenders Dean Leacock (mumps) and Jake Buxton (groin), while striker James Vaughan has returned to Everton due to the knee injury that has hampered his loan stay at Pride Park.

Forward Steve Davies and midfielder Stephen Pearson made their comebacks in last weekend's 4-2 defeat to QPR and should be involved once again, while full-back Fredrik Stoor is available having extended his loan stay from Fulham. Midfielder Arnaud Mendy has also returned from his spell at Grimsby.
