Derby boss Nigel Clough hopes defender Dean Leacock will make a swift recovery from injury.

Leacock limped out of the 5-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday with a hamstring complaint, but Clough is confident of a quick return.

"It's a hamstring strain for Dean but it isn't a bad one," said Clough. "We are hopeful that he will be back after the international break."

He added: "We are without as many as 10 players again but we have a flexible squad and that is something we have to contend with."
