Fit-again Lee Croft raring to go with Derby County

Croft has only played a total of 21 games for Derby

Derby County midfielder Lee Croft insists he is fully fit and ready for the new season after being laid low by a combination of toothache and illness.

Croft, who is back in the first-team frame this term, told BBC Radio Derby: "My wisdom tooth has been causing me problems and it got unbearable.

"I wasn't sleeping and I got run down and picked up a virus and was in bed for three or four days.

"But everything is OK now and I can move on."

Croft did not feature for the Rams last season and was loaned out to Huddersfield Town.

But he has been told by manager Nigel Clough that he will be given a chance to impress this season.
