Dawkins in Derby frame

Last Updated: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:39

Derby could have Simon Dawkins back in contention for the trip to Doncaster.

Dawkins has missed the last six matches with a groin injury but the attacking midfielder resumed full training this week and is pushing for a place in the matchday squad.

Fellow forward Jamie Ward returned from a four-game absence with a hamstring problem against Huddersfield last weekend and he will be hoping his substitute appearance has put him in the frame for a starting place at the Keepmoat Stadium on Friday night.

Victory for Derby would assure them of a Sky Bet Championship play-off spot but the Rams still harbour faint hopes of chasing down Burnley for that second automatic promotion place.
