Derby County suffer Anderson injury blow

Published Add your comment

Derby defender Russell Anderson has suffered a setback in his return to fitness.

The centre-half was due to resume full training on Monday after a two-month lay-off with a hamstring problem.

However, he sustained a calf strain during his rehabilitation work last week.

"It is a blow for Russell, I feel for him," Derby manager Nigel Clough told the club`s official website.

"He has had such a frustrating time this season and now he will be out for a few more weeks. It could be up to four weeks before he is in a position to join full training again."

Anderson suffered a groin injury on the opening day of the season before a hamstring injury sidelined him again soon after his return in October.

The 32-year-old has been restricted to just four appearances this season.
