Duo boost Rams

Last Updated: Fri, 24 Jan 2014 11:01

Johnny Russell and Andre Wisdom are both fit and available for Derby's trip to Blackburn.

Russell underwent surgery on a fractured cheekbone following the 1-0 defeat to Wigan on New Year's Day and with the aid of a protective mask, the striker is now able to take part in full contact training and match action.

On-loan Liverpool defender Wisdom was withdrawn in the latter stages of the 1-0 victory over Brighton last weekend with a hamstring complaint.

Striker Patrick Bamford will be hoping to be handed his first start since arriving on loan from Chelsea after netting the 76th-minute winner against the Seagulls.
