A season-ending injury cruelly meant left-back Craig Forsyth missed the majority of the 2018/19 campaign.
The defender, who is one of the club’s longest serving players, suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the defeat against Aston Villa at Pride Park in November.
It was a blow for both the defender and the Rams as he started the campaign strongly. He put in a number of solid displays and contributed four assists before suffering the unfortunate injury.
The Scotsman will be hoping to put that season behind him now as he hopes to force his way into Phillip Cocu’s plans for the 2019/20 campaign.
The former Dundee, Montrose and Arbroath man became a permanent member of the Derby squad in the summer of 2013 after impressing during a loan spell from Watford towards the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
Forsyth put pen-to-paper after undisclosed fee was agreed for his services and he went on to be one of The Rams’ most consistent performers as they reached the Play-Off Final at the end of the 2013/14 season.
His consistent performances saw him land a call-up to the Scotland squad in May 2014 and he went on to win his first cap against Nigeria at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.
