Published Add your comment

Derby midfielder Stephen Pearson faces at least a month on the sidelines after suffering a slight groin muscle tear.

The Scotland international had featured in all nine of the league and cup games this season before sitting out Saturday`s home Championship victory over Bristol City.

Pearson injured his groin in training at the end of last week and scans have revealed the 26-year-old has a tear.

Boss Nigel Clough said: "It looks like Stephen will be out for four weeks."
