Derby County have been dealt a huge blow ahead of the play-off after it was confirmed that star midfielder George Thorne suffered a broken leg in their match with Ipswich on Saturday.
The club said today he sustained a double-break to his lower right leg, following a tackle in the second half of the match.
X-rays confirmed the break, and the club says they expect Thorne to be out of action for around three months.
Derby take on Hull in the play-off semi finals, and will play the first leg at home after finishing fifth in the Championship.
Gutted is an understatement but just have to get on with it.. 3 month lay off, so will be working very hard to make the start of next season
