Hoganson hurt but some better news
JAKE Buxton's return to action for Derby County and Gareth Roberts being available again after suspension has softened the blow of losing another defender to injury.
Nineteen-year-old Michael Hoganson limped out of Saturday's defeat at Watford with painful knocks to his hip and foot.
Hoganson was replaced at half-time by Buxton, who had missed two matches after he tweaked the knee that had kept him out during December and January.
Buxton joined skipper Richard Keogh at centre- back, John Brayford reverted to right-back and midfielder Ben Davies filled in at left- back.

"Losing Michael to injury at half-time was a blow," said manager Nigel Clough.
"He got caught on the hip and the foot and both were equally sore.
"Jake, though not 100%, which is why we didn't start him, went out there in the second half and did well.
"Jake will be available to start our next game and, fortunately, Gareth Roberts is available again after suspension."
Roberts was banned for three matches for his red card in the defeat at Hull.
Midfielder Will Hughes missed a second consecutive match due to a groin strain.
"There has been no great improvement with the injury since last week," said Clough.
"We hope he will be fit but we'll see."
