Rams suffer Bogle blow
Derby boss Phillip Cocu has confirmed full-back Jayden Bogle will be sidelined for longer than first expected.
England Under-20 international Bogle picked up an injury in the 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City last Saturday and he missed the Carabao Cup victory at Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night.

Initially, the 19-year-old full-back was only expected to spend a short time on the sidelines and it was hoped he would be available for the trip to Stoke City this weekend.
However, Cocu, who is unbeaten from his first three games in charge of the club, has revealed Bogle will definitely miss the next two matches after scans confirmed the injury is worse than expected.
“We know a little bit more now,” he told RamsTV. “He will be out for a certain period of time. He will not make it for the next two games so we will have to see how he will be doing day-by-day.
“He is still a young guy so hopefully it will not take too long. It’s a little bit longer than we had expected.”
