Derby County have revealed they may have a goalkeeping problem, with the news that number one keeper, Stephen Bywater has a wrist injury sustained last Wednesday.

The club do not yet know the extent of the injury and Bywater will see a specialist today (Monday). The consultation will then give the club a better understanding of how long Bywater will be unavailable to the squad.

Saul Deeney is the reserve keeper and is expected to step into the Rams starting line-up for the game on Saturday against Preston North End, but with Ross Atkins out on loan at Tamworth it leaves the Rams short of cover in goal.

Nigel Clough may decide to re-call Ross Atkins or look into bringing in an emergency loan as cover...
