Injury woe for unlucky Deeney

Published Add your comment

Derby goalkeeper Saul Deeney looks set to be sidelined for around a month after suffering a freak injury prior to last Friday's clash with Swansea.

Deeney slipped and twisted his ankle outside the team's hotel on Thursday evening when the fire alarm sounded.

Manager Nigel Clough told the club's official website: "Saul slipped over and he's going to be out for four to six weeks. He was in pain straight away and he has either twisted or sprained it. He had an x-ray in Swansea and will have one in Derby this week."
