BOSS PAUL BACKS WILL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

DERBY boss Paul Cle­ment be­lieves mid­fielder Will Hughes will re­turn stronger than ever as he con­tin­ues his re­cov­ery from an an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in­jury.

The 20-year-old sus­tained the in­jury on the open­ing day of the sea­son and Cle­ment has been im­pressed with the young­ster’s at­ti­tude as he bat­tles back.

“Will is do­ing really well and his at­ti­tude and drive to get back fit has been out­stand­ing,” said Cle­ment.

“He is the first in and the last to leave – I think he will come back a bet­ter ath­lete for this.”
