Derby defender Claude Davis will undergo a knee operation on Friday that could rule him out for the remainder of the season.

The persistent problem forced the Jamaica international to withdraw from the squad to face Birmingham, and he saw a specialist earlier this week.

County manager Paul Jewell revealed the 28-year-old had been playing through the pain barrier in recent weeks and said: "Claude has been playing on with an injury and I think he deserves credit for that. He needs an operation and he is going to have it on Friday."
