Derby should find out by Thursday how long they will be without the services of Jake Buxton.

Jake Buxton: Knee trouble

The County defender is awaiting scan results on the suspected knee ligament damage he suffered in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Leeds, having consulted a specialist earlier in the week.

The npower Championship club expect Buxton to be out at least until the New Year, which leaves boss Nigel Clough with a lack of defensive cover as captain Shaun Barker has been ruled out for the season also with a knee injury.

Buxton has made 14 appearances for the Rams this campaign, scoring in the win against Leeds.
