Liam Rosenior has provided an update on Curtis Davies after the defender sustained an injury in Derby County’s 0-0 draw at Brentford on Wednesday night.

The centre-back sustained a problem around his Achilles and calf area midway through the second half of the clash against the Bees and was carried off on a stretcher.

Davies, 35, is to have a scan on the injury today to learn the extent of the damage.

Rosenior, who holds the position of Specialist First Team Coach on Derby’s backroom team, has admitted it is a blow to lose Davies.

He told RamsTV: “We were all down on Wednesday when we saw one of our players taken off the pitch and especially someone as important to the team as Curtis has been in terms of his leadership and what he brings.

“He’s a fantastic character and he’s been really important in this period of good form in terms of his performances and also in marshalling the defence and giving out communication and instruction on the training pitch as well.

“He has his scan today and obviously fingers crossed, we are all praying and hoping it’s good news. Whatever the news is, I know Curtis is as resilient as they come and he will be working extremely hard to get back as soon as he can.”

Davies, who is in his fourth season with Derby, has made 103 appearances for the club since joining from Hull City in the summer of 2017.

The experienced defender has made 13 appearances in all competitions for the Rams in the current campaign.
