The son of God has spoken.

They played Tyson today alone up front when he was already carrying a injury and left Garner on the bench who's suspended on Wednesday, strange move by BD.

Hopefully Earnie is still out Wednesday, although I have a feeling he maybe there on the bench at least.

The son of god was telling porkys!

Miles Addison will not be risked when Derby County take on rivals Nottingham Forest at the City Ground tomorrow.

A tight hamstring forced the 20-year-old off at half-time in Saturday’s league victory over Coventry City and he is out of the FA Cup fourth round replay.

The game falls a few days before an important Championship fixture against Plymouth Argyle at Home Park on Saturday and Derby are being cautious with Addison.

A key midfielder for much of the season, he has started at centre-back in the last three matches. The only game he has missed in the last 34 was through suspension, for reaching five yellow cards.

Lewin Nyatanga is also 50-50 with a hamstring problem but Andy Todd returned to training yesterday.

Todd has missed three games with a hamstring injury.

“Andy has trained, a little bit tentatively, so we will see how he is,†said manager Nigel Clough.

“If Miles’ hamstring were to go, it could put him out for six weeks, so we certainly will not risk him.â€Â

Jay McEveley filled in at the heart of the defence in the second half against Coventry after Addison went off.

Kris Commons picked up a couple of knocks in the same game but should be fit.

Steve Davies and Stephen Pearson are also back in training. Davies has not featured since the Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United because of a groin strain and Pearson is working his way back after knee surgery.

The snow did not disrupt Derby’s training at Moor Farm yesterday.

“We went out and had a little bit of fun in the snow – if it’s like this on Wednesday evening, we’ll be out in it, so we may as well get used to it,†said Clough.

"I think they’ve got undersoil heating at Forest, so we should be fine.

“We’re certainly planning as if it’s going to be on. With the fixture problems we’ve got at the moment, we certainly don’t want it postponing.â€Â

Derby will play their 39th game of the season tomorrow.

Asked if he felt that could catch up with the team in the latter stages of the league campaign, Clough said: “It could do but I think we have enough players to get by.â€Â

Derby’s league game at Forest on Saturday, February 21, will now kick off at 1pm and not 3pm, at the request of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Safety Advisory Group, following consultation with the police.

Rams defender Nyatanga has been included in the Wales squad for the friendly international against Poland in Portugal on Wednesday, February 11.
