Derby's Nigel Clough struggling to sign loan striker

Clough's side have now lost three Championship games in a row

Derby County boss Nigel Clough says the club are desperately trying to bring in another striker before Thursday's emergency loan transfer deadline.

Leading scorer Theo Robinson suffered a hamstring injury 15 minutes into Saturday's loss to Hull City and Steven Davies and Nathan Tyson are also out.

"We're trying everything we can but there are very few players out there," Clough told BBC Radio Derby.

"If you asked me to name half a dozen strikers available to loan I couldn't."

Davies is sidelined with a head injury and Tyson is now unlikely to return before December following a groin injury.
