CRAIG Bryson and Jamie Ward have handed Derby County a double boost ahead of tomorrow’s Championship clash against Burnley at Turf Moor, kick-off 3pm.

Bryson has recovered from a thigh injury and Ward a hamstring problem.

Both have trained and are available for the meeting between third-placed Derby and the team two points and one place above them, Burnley.

Bryson (pictured) and Ward missed last Saturday’s victory over Bournemouth.

“It’s great to have a full squad available,” said head coach Steve McClaren who has four players vying for the two wide roles.

Johnny Russell and Patrick Bamford started against Bournemouth before Simon Dawkins replaced Bamford at half time, and Ward is now fit again.

“Simon Dawkins is ready to start, if need be, I thought he did a very good job when he came on last week,” said McClaren.

Derby are unbeaten in seven matches, Burnley in 10 league games.

The Clarets could be unchanged for a seventh fixture.
