Paul Warne will be pleased as it looks as though he could have more players returning from injury over the Christmas period.

It could be vital for the Rams in what is going to be a busy part of the season with games coming thick and fast.

There is a possibility that two players could return tonight for Derby's home game against Lincoln City with a few more set to return in the near future.

Liam Thompson

Liam Thompson has been out of action with a quad injury since October just after he broke out into the first team. The 21 year old midfielder has been back in training over the past few weeks and could feature this evening against Lincoln City.

A big relief for the promising Thompson.

Callum Elder

Callum Elder has been on a similar timeline to Thompson but the Australian defender has been dealing with an ankle injury. He is also set to be available for tonight's game should Paul Warne wish to select him.

Ryan Nyambe

Ryan Nyambe is unlikely to be fit to return this evening. The defender did however return to training this week as he is recovering from a groin injury and will be assessed ahead of the game.

Korey Smith

Conor Washington is on a similar timeline to Korey Smith and has not yet returned to training. The Northern-Irish international will be hoping to come back as soon as possible after he recovers from his ankle injury.

Martyn Waghorn's hot start to the season was somewhat halted by his injury. The 33 year-old has been dealing with a calf issue and is not set to return for some time.

Jake Rooney has been recovering from an ACL injury and will be out for at least the majority of the season.
