Will Hughes 'available for Derby County run-in'

Derby County starlet Will Hughes is on course to return for the Rams' final eight Championship fixtures of the season.

Derby County will reportedly have their Championship promotion push boosted by the return of midfielder Will Hughes.

The England Under-21 international has been out with a knee ligament injury since the opening match of the season last August.

Hughes could return after the current international break and feature in the club's last eight matches of the season.

"Will has looked very good in training," Rams head coach Darren Wassall told the Derby Telegraph.

"All being well he will feature in Shaun Barker's testimonial and we are going to arrange an Under-21 game for him to play in.

"Then, if all goes well, he will be available for selection for the final eight games of the season."

Derby are fifth in the Championship table, five clear of Cardiff City outside the playoff places and seven adrift of Brighton & Hove Albion in the second automatic promotion spot.
