Reserves return for Bywater

Published Add your comment

Derby goalkeeper Stephen Bywater made a successful comeback from injury in the reserves.

The 29-year-old has been sidelined since early October after chipping a bone in his wrist but played the full 90 minutes against rivals Nottingham Forest at Belper's Christchurch Meadow ground.

"It was his first game for a good few weeks but he has been training now for just over a week, joining in all the sessions and diving around as normal," said manager Nigel Clough.

"It is just a matter of him getting some time under his belt and then he will be challenging Frank (Fielding)."

Stephen Pearson put Derby ahead but Forest hit back with two goals early in the second half to win 2-1.
