DERBY boss Steve McClaren won’t be rushed into re­plac­ing crocked strik­ers Chris Martin and Dar­ren Bent.

Both are side­lined with ham­string prob­lems, although 26-year-old Martin could re­turn for the Cham­pi­onship clash against Nor­wich City at Car­row Road a week on Satur­day.

Bent, 31, will not be avail­able un­til af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break, and McClaren is happy to wait.

“There is noth­ing out there that can come in and re­place what we have got,” he said.“We’ve got a good squad, and we carry on.

“There are seven games af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break and we need every­body fit for that spell.”
