Football - Eustace back to boost Rams

John Eustace comes back into the reckoning for Derby when they resume Sky Bet Championship action at Bournemouth.

PA Sport Report

Eustace served a one-match suspension as the Rams signed off for the international break with a 3-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday. Fellow midfielder Jeff Hendrick (ankle) and striker Johnny Russell (broken leg) will also return to contention after injury having played almost an hour for Derby's Under-21 side this week.

The trip to the south coast has come too soon for defender Mark O'Brien (knee), goalkeeper Adam Legzdins (ankle) and midfielder James Bailey (knee) but head coach Steve McClaren hopes to have the trio back next week.

On-loan defender Zak Whitbread (calf) remains out while Paul Coutts and Shaun Barker continue their rehabilitation from long-term knee injuries.
