Derby County manager Nigel Clough is hopeful new signing Nathan Tyson will soon be on the verge of making his first start for the Rams after missing the start of the season with a groin strain.

Since his move from rivals Nottingham Forest, Tyson has missed the opening weeks of the season after picking up the injury in the club's final pre-season match against Aston Villa.

However, Clough has some encouraging news about Tyson, who has seen Derby win four of their first five matches in the Npower Championship.

"Nathan has starting running this week, which is an encouraging sign," said Clough.

"We then have to decide if we risk including him in the squad if he hasn't had a training session or two under his belt.

"There will be a place for Nathan in the squad when he is fully fit; there is no doubt about that.


"We have to make a decision on do we have a half-fit Nathan Tyson on the bench ahead of some of the lads who have been in the squad this season and played an important part."

In addition to the news concerning Tyson, Clough has also been boosted by the news that Conor Doyle, Russell Anderson and David Martin have all return to training following injury.

Anderson picked up a groin injury on the opening day of the season against Birmingham City, while Doyle and Martin broke down during pre-season.

"Conor is closing in on full fitness now after his ankle injury, Russell is available again after his groin problem and so is David Martin as well after his injury in pre-season," Clough added.
