The Rams are looking at a six week wait to bring in the targetted teenager Nigel Clough wants up front.

Chris Wood
Chris Wood could have a six week wait to join the Rams on loan
The Rams could be waiting over a month to bring in a loan striker. With two front men already either sold or loaned out for the season it looked to be only a matter of time before the Rams brought in another striker but to date only Spaniard Alberto Bueno has been loaned for the season.

Derby Continue to struggle in the attacking areas of the pitch with Dean Moxey being the make-shift striker on a few occasions. Clough now sees Tomasz Cwyka and Bueno as the striking options but with Cwyka still nursing a fractured cheek bone and having to play in a protective mask, it is hardly ideal.

Clough has indicated that he had wanted to bring in Talented teenager Chris Wood from WBA but injury in the Baggies front line to Roman Bednar and Ishmael Miller means that loan had to be put back. Clough however is optimistic in bringing Wood to Derby once the injuries clear up, which could be up to six weeks time.

The Rams must now hope and pray for no further injuries to their new strike force...
