More injury woes for Derby County. Teenager Giles Barnes is expected to face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in training last week and is set to go for another scan this week.
Derby manager Paul Jewell laments:
It isn’t good news. We’re sending him for a second opinion.
It isn’t cruciate ligament damage but until we get a second opinion we’ll not know too much more.
The news is not as bad for Derby as it is for the player himself. Derby are guaranteed to drop down into the Championship at the end of the season but Giles Barnes would certainly have loved to continue playing football. Poor lad, may he recover soon. Amen.
