Jamie fit to face Rovers but injury will be watched
JAMIE Ward will be fit for Derby County's FA Cup fourth-round tie against Blackburn Rovers at Pride Park Stadium tomorrow.
The striker faced Nottingham Forest at the weekend in what was his first start in more than three months following hamstring trouble.
He lasted 67 minutes and admitted his hamstring stiffened up, something he expected to happen after being sidelined for so long.
"Jamie has had a gentle week, he has done some training and some strengthening work on his hamstring, which will be the case between now and the end of the season," said manager Nigel Clough.
